The Fespa 2018 show in Berlin saw Mactac Europe launching 16 new colour choices and faster colour matching for the popular Macal 9800 Pro range — including six new colours inspired by Mondrian’s palette. It means an even wider range of choices for long term vehicle marking, window graphics, decorative and signage panels, and other branding applications.
Oliver Guenther, senior director marketing and channel strategy for Mactac Europe brand, said: ‘Macal 9800 Pro is one of our most important premium quality films with bright, opaque and long lasting colours using high quality pigments. The solvent adhesive formulation avoids issues such as cracks, edge lifting and shrinkage. These 16 new colour options join an existing range of 100 high gloss colours.’
He continued, ‘We have also improved our colour matching service, which is now available for as few as 15 reels for all films other than High Tack and Bubble Free.’
The expandedMACal 9800 Pro range includes four new High Tack grades (black and white in matt and gloss), two Bubble Free grades (black and white, gloss), six new matt colours and three new metallic colours. Adhesion for all is very good on flat and curved surfaces; durability is ten years for black and white, eight years for colours, and five years for metallics.
In addition, Mactac is able to match almost any colour needed by a converter, with high precision, more quickly. Converters can send a sample of the required colour (or supply a RAL reference), and will receive an initial colour match sample within two weeks.
