PlaStick™ Digital Media

For permanent applications only!
  • White pressure sensitive gloss vinyl.
  • PlaStick is 4.4 mil.
  • Super aggressive permanent adhesive for Low Surface Energy (LSE) applications.
  • For those who don’t mind replacing plastic with their graphics.
  • Use PlaStick for smooth surfaces.

This 4.4 mil white pressure sensitive gloss vinyl is ready for thermal and wide format ink jet printing. PlaStick is more economical because it has a little less adhesive for smooth surfaces.

For your customers who want to replace the plastics when they replace the graphics, this is the permanent bond you are looking for. Once PlaStick sets up, (24 hours), removing it is a lot like tug-of-war. This is oen of the most permanent bonds yet.

Applications include any hard to stick to surfaces including plastic, powder paint, Thermoplastic  Olefin, and textured surfaces. For UV exposure over 2 years it is recommended that a UV foil such as Gerber’s Abrasion Guard SPF, Convex Supreme UV, or Tuff Cover UV laminating film be used to prolong the life of the base film and graphic.

Compatible with Convex and Pro-Shield laminates.

For great savings, Combo Kits are available.

Overview

PlaStick is ready for Thermal, Solvent, UV, and Latex based printing.

PlaStick is meant for smooth surfaces such as number plates on bikes.

For prolonged UV exposure, it is recommended that you use a UV laminate of some kind. Without UV protection, constant UV exposure may cause the material to yellow.
