Drytac Vehicle Wrapping Film Used For Barcelona Football Team’s Bus


An innovative PVC material from Drytac’s Polar range was recently used for an exciting vehicle wrapping project prior to the UEFA Champions League semi-final in Liverpool. The vehicle wrap, which covered the entire Barcelona team bus, including the windows, was printed by Manchester-based Astra Signs onto an innovative PVC material from Drytac’s Polar range, using an HP Latex 570 printer.

Steve Broad, European & Asia sales director for Drytac Europe, is a self-proclaimed ‘big Liverpool fan’ and was lucky enough to be in Liverpool on May 7 for the second-leg match, as well as in Barcelona for the semi-final first leg. ‘The bus drove past us and we spotted it outside the hotel in Liverpool where the Barcelona players were staying,’ he said. ‘It’s always great to see Drytac products used for world-class applications — and even more so when it’s at a spectacular event like this match.’

David Derbyshire, managing director at Astra Signs, explained why the company chose the Drytac Polar product, ‘It was important to use a product that we could print quickly due to the nature of this application, with consistently strong spot colours to match the brand. Installation of this material worked really well within the time constraints provided and, equally, the material was easy to remove, leaving no marks or residue. The client was very happy with the end result.’

The Drytac Polar range comprises a series of printable media designed for eye-catching applications in even the most extreme conditions, such as window displays in low temperatures or the environmental conditions endured by vehicle graphics.
