CONVEX® Vinyl for MX Decals & Graphics

Combine CONVEX Media + Laminate to Create Thick Durable Decals

BASE MEDIA

CONVEX vinyl media for MX decals gives you everything you need for printing decals and stickers for dirt bike plastics and other hard-to-stick-to surfaces. Whether you use thermal transfer, solvent, eco-solvent, latex, or UV inkjet printers, CONVEX will do the job! Offer your customers the premium material for shroud graphics, number plates, and other stickers. Because many people want to keep an inventory onhand, CONVEX has an excellent shelf life. And it won’t shrink or ooze adhesive at the edges over time.

There are four main things to consider with materials for motocross graphics and stickers:

  • Conforming to the curves of the bike
  • Sticking to the plastics and metals
  • At least a 2 year shelf life
  • Durability – resistance to abrasion

LAMINATES

We offer a choice of laminates that have just the right adhesive so they don’t come apart:

  • CONVEX 4, 8, or 12 mil – very conformable, soft and easy to work with.
  • Pro-Shield – very abrasion resistant, glossy, and less conformable.
  • Stubbl – rough texture for traction and grasping the bike.

CONVEX Laminate is best for very curvy number plates (especially on the pipe side of smaller bikes). It conforms more easily to sharp curves.

For rougher riders who wear knee braces and rub hard against the shrouds, 12 mil Pro-Shield gives great durability and a high-gloss finish. Pro-Shield laminated graphics should be heated with a heat gun to make them more pliable for wrapping around curved surfaces.
