The latest introduction to Drytac's product line is 8mm (200µ) embossed printable white matte monomeric PVC film for short-term, indoor floor graphics applications. Thanks to a unique dot pattern printed pressure- sensitive polyacrylate adhesive, the new film can be applied to multiple flooring surfaces including floor or ceramic tiles, sealed wood or concrete, waxed vinyl, marble, terrazzo surfaces, and more. It also boasts a post-printed anti-slip rating of R10 (accord- ing to DIN 51130:2010), which allows for vibrant, slip-resistant floor graph- ics without the need for over-lamination.
