Mactac Introduces Second-Surface Mounting Film with Self-Wetting Silicone Adhesive
STOW, Ohio – April 4, 2017 – Featuring a self-wetting removable silicone adhesive, Mactac introduces PERMACOLOR ColorTrans CT2500, a second-surface mounting film.
Unlike any second-surface mounting film, ColorTrans CT2500’s self-wetting removable adhesive offers even the most novice installers an optically clear application of face-mounted images.
“Many second-surface mounting films feature air-egress adhesives, which is a great adhesive technology; however, when face mounting images to glass or acrylic sheeting, air-egress adhesives often create a hazy appearance,” says Jeff Stadelman, marketing manager, Mactac Distributor Products. “With ColorTrans CT2500’s self-wetting removable silicone adhesive, haze is eliminated, resulting in a perfect, optically clear application – wet or dry – even for the least experienced installer.”
Similar to Mactac’s PERMACOLOR ColorTrans CT2200, the permanent/removable ColorTrans CT2500 is a 2.0-mil, super-clear polyester film that is equipped with two film release liners for an ultra-smooth surface. The self-wetting removable silicone adhesive coats one side of the film while the other side is coated with an optically clear permanent acrylic adhesive. This second-surface mounting film can be applied wet or dry and can be used wherever superior clarity and smoothness are required.
ColorTrans CT2500 offers up to 3 years' outdoor durability, a 6-month clean removability from glass, Plexiglas and acrylic sheeting surfaces, and features a 2-year shelf life. It is available in a roll size of 54” x 150’ (CT2554W54L150).
As with all of Mactac’s industry-leading PERMACOLOR mounting films, ColorTrans CT2500 offers excellent resistance to water, detergents, alcohol, some aliphatic solvents and fading caused by exposure to ultraviolet light.
