MetaCast MDC is a new, premium cast wrapping vinyl. According to the company, working with MetaCast MDC is like having another pair of hands. Its handling and its application behaviour takes the concept of ‘ease’ to a higher level over a wider range of application conditions.
Challenging applications are something MetaCast MDC was expressly designed for. Hands-on signs and graphics producers will welcome MetaCast MDC’s tolerance of the extreme elongation needed to achieve the most dramatic results demanded for today’s imaginative wrapping work.
MetaCast MDC makes application easier too thanks to its MetaGlide adhesive. This proprietary micro-channelled adhesive doesn’t just give trapped air nowhere to hide, it facilitates effortless repositioning and sliding of the graphic during application and manages its initial adhesion. Once applied, it builds to a powerful ultimate bond and there’s no hatch pattern to show through to the MetaCast MDC face-film. Removal, when the time comes, is a totally clean exercise without a trace of adhesive remaining.
MetaCast MDC’s performance requires a laminate that’s its equal. Metamark has developed MetaCast MGC, an advanced premium matched laminate to protect printed MDC graphics. The new laminate is crystal clear and just as conformable as the MetaCast MDC that it protects. MetaCast MDC is available in 1600mm wide rolls. That little extra width makes a huge and very valuable difference. It means that more jobs can be tackled with the application of a single panel.
Metamark’s CEO Paul French said, ‘The sign and allied industries have a very clear understanding of where cast materials fit, how they’re used and the performance that they have to deliver. We knew exactly what we needed to accomplish in terms of product innovations and performance improvements in order to make sure that MetaCast MDC represent a significant advance in the field of premium cast films. MetaCast MDC delivers our performance objectives on all fronts. It prints brilliantly. It brings new features and big advances that make application much easier. It’s durable in the extreme too.’
