Pro-Shield™ Durable Power Sports Laminate

Resists Failure In Abusive Applications. Thick. Tough. Durable.
  • High-Gloss, and now available in Matte.
  • More durable and rigid than Convex laminate.
  • Conforms with the aid of a heat gun.

Professionals need crystal clear, thick, heavy duty, abrasion resistant laminates. We developed Pro-Shield as the  durable power sports laminate solution for shrouds and other areas on MX bikes that receive the highest amount of abrasion from boots and knee braces. Most professional shops choose the combination of Convex® High-Bond with Pro-Shield laminate because even though Pro-Shield is harder and less conformable, you can mold Pro-Shield to most shapes with the aid of a heat gun. Pro-Shield comes in 7 and 12 mil thicknesses, and we have recently released 7 mil matte.

Overview

Pro-Shield™ is the solution for plastics on MX bikes that receive a tremendous amount of abrasion from boots & knee braces. Many professional shops choose to use the combination of Convex® High-Bond with Pro-Shield durable power sports laminte for the whole bike, because they can mold the Pro-Shield to almost any shape with the aid of a heat gun. Pro-Shield comes in 7 and 12 mil. That means that when you print with 6 mil Convex®, and use Pro-Shield 12 mil, your result is a 19.5 mil thick decal (there is 1.5 mils of psa on the 12 mil vinyl).  This provides an extremely durable barrier for your graphics.

Take care not to apply too much reverse tension on the supply roll.  If you do, it will stretch the laminate and curl up immediately after it is cut.

PS7Matte-Gloss

Did you know that you can print on Pro-Shield and Pro-Form after you laminate?  Our laminates are designed for laminating as well as printing.  This is a sample of the front panel under the headlights on a  Polaris RMK sled.  We added some ghosted design elements in the form of a matte finish on top of the laminate.  It all looks black until you get close enough in the right light to see the scroll work in matte.  The darker areas in the picture are the gloss areas.  In the printing industry, this is known as a spot varnish.  This is a unique capability of the Gerber Edge®.  Want to know more?  E-mail us at Specialist@Graphicms.com.

Recommended Base Media

CHB_200x107

Convex High-Bond is used to make decals for motocross bikes and other applications for low-energy plastic surfaces.

Finish: Gloss or Matte for Gerber and Summa thermal printers.  High-Bond Matte is recommended for ink jets.

Applications: Use Convex when you need an extremely pliable vinyl to cover complex curves.  Convex was originally designed for helmets with GearWrap adhesive.  Convex with High-Bond adhesive is designed for low-energy plastics.

MW-Logo

Motowrap: gives you excellent high-bond adhesion to plastics, and will stay on even in frigid weather.

Finish: Gloss for the Gerber Edge and Ink Jets

Applications:   MotoWrap is great for Sleds and other machines that will feel the cold.  It will conform to the complex curves of MX bikes and ATV fenders.  It is also compatible with MotoWrap, Pro-Form, and Pro-Shield laminates.  MotoWrap™ gives you the best mix of economy, adhesion and conformability to compete in the fast-paced decal market.

PitbullMX-237x110

Pitbull™ is the vinyl with adhesive that won’t let go.

Finish: Gloss for thermal printers and inkjets.

Applications: Pitbull is ideal for LSE applications such as pelican cases and motorsport vehicles.  It also works on coolers and other textured plastic surfaces.  Due to the aggressiveness of the adhesive, wet application techniques may be preferred.  Pitbull vinyl may not remove cleanly from surfaces.  For that reason, on MX plastics it may be advantageous to sell new plastic with the decals already installed.
