Adhesives are one of the most common and necessary components of many applications across a whole host of markets and industries. With this wide-ranging demand and use comes the core challenge for manufacturers and suppliers, how are you able to offer a product that can deliver on all these project types?

Visitors to the Mactac stand at FESPA 2022 were able to see for the first time a range of innovations designed to transform performance, with a special focus for 2022 on automotive and architectural applications.

Brett Martin is pleased to announce that global manufacturer of cutting equipment, Summa, has become its latest Approved Partner following trials at Summa’s demo centre in Belgium. A wide range of Brett Martin’s products, including the Foamalux, Marcryl FS, Marpet-g FS and Marlon FS materials, were successfully tested on Summa’s F Series flatbed cutter.

Sustainability and innovation were at the heart of the Avery Dennison FESPA 2022 stand in Berlin, offering installers insights into new sales opportunities and improvements to both environmental performance and their bottom line. A particular focus was placed on automotive and architectural segments, where key innovations have made an especially strong impact.

Blandford Forum-based leading waste management company J&G Environmental has purchased a new Ulster U150 Twin Shaft Shredder as part of a wider plan to further strengthen its recycling offering.

TAYA Groups has officially launched an upgraded version of the KAVALAN Eco Calculator, a solution for businesses to evaluate and understand the eco-reductions offered by KAVALAN PVC-free banner and textiles based on Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) data. Kavalan Eco Calculator II includes a range of additional features to make it even more straightforward to quantify the environmental impact of large-format materials.

Innotech Digital & Display has created an Eco Impact Rating Tool designed to give printed display producers and users a straightforward and accurate way to evaluate and compare any print material’s overall environmental impact. The tool is available online and is very easy to use. Simply enter the information requested about your proposed media and instantly receive a rating from A to E that tells you exactly how sustainable that product is.

Spandex, the one-stop supplier of innovative solutions to the sign, graphics and display industries, is significantly broadening its range of functional self-adhesive films for application to glass, with the introduction of four new ImagePerfect™ product families.

Roland DGA has introduced new HeatSoft™ Premium heat transfer material (ESM-HTMP) to its family of high-quality media. This flexible, 3.5-mil matte polyurethane film with a waterbase coating is smooth, has a soft hand, and yields vibrant prints resembling screen-printed graphics. Supplied on a recyclable clear polyester liner, HeatSoft Premium is simple to weed and transfer, allowing for optimum ease of use and productivity. It’s also extremely lightweight, extremely durable, and because it can be applied at temperatures as low as 72°F (120°C), HeatSoft Premium is ideal for heat-sensitive garments.

Leeds-based wide-format printing and signage specialist Imageco recently used Drytac SpotOn SynTac and ViziPrint Deco + to produce a range of striking POS and window graphics for world-famous footwear brand Dr. Martens at its new test and learn concept store on Carnaby Street in London. All of the graphics were printed using Imageco’s HP Latex 800W printer, with its eco-friendly water-based inks.

Innotech Digital has published a comprehensive eBook covering the realities of being sustainable in the large format printing industry. The eBook is a guide to help printing companies navigate the challenges of becoming more sustainable throughout their operations.

ImagePerfect™ is taking a significant step forward for sustainability, with the launch of ImagePerfect EverGreen, a ground-breaking new portfolio of eco-friendly self-adhesive films, to add to its comprehensive range of materials for sign-makers and graphics producers.

Soyang Europe, a leading manufacturer and distributor of digitally printable wide-format and superwide-format media and surface coverings has announced its acquisition of Josero.

Adhesives are absolutely critical to the success of applications across a range of sectors. Simply put, if you get this choice wrong, then you put the entire project in jeopardy and run the risk of undoing your hard work earlier on in the process, thus costing you valuable time, money and, potentially, repeat business.

High spec eco wallcoverings and backlit materials from CMYUK have been used in the extensive remodelling and refurbishment of Flutter’s worldwide HQ in Dublin. This venture involved a significant amount of demolition and reconstruction from the ground up to transform this office complex, built in 1999, into a contemporary and collaborative working space.

At FESPA 2022, taking place in Berlin, Germany from May 31st – June 3rd, attendees will have the opportunity to see KAVALAN PVC-free materials in action. In a collaboration with Epson Europe B.V., KAVALAN Sunlight Weldable frontlit material will be printed live on the Epson stand in Hall 4.2-C30.

Fujifilm has agreed a partnership with Soyang to sell the Acuity Ultra R2 in the UK market. The agreement marks the start of a new venture for Soyang, a highly respected wide format materials supplier, now looking to leverage that expertise to enter into hardware sales.

As a consequence of the war, more than 18 million people, according to Red Cross estimates, need help in Ukraine or outside Ukraine. Since the beginning of the conflict, Lecta has joined the worldwide wave of solidarity in support of the Ukrainian people and has recently collaborated with the Red Cross through a financial donation to support its crucial humanitarian work in caring for victims and refugees.

Though increasing in popularity at a rapid rate, when it comes to producing printed wallcovering applications, print service providers are faced with a wide range of challenges that they must overcome in order to deliver high-quality work to customers.
