ProTect Spray Booth Liner

Surface protection is vital when working in confined spaces. We consider it an essential requirement in today’s industrial space, where day-to-day operations create a stronger need for films that provide a protective coating. Drytac’s ProTect Spray Booth Liner can accomplish this task, adding a protective layer that shields against harmful contaminants in spray booths.

It consists of a 0.9 mil (23µ) white, non-fibrous polyester carrier that has a specially designed adhesive on the exposed side and a removable solvent acrylic adhesive on the other that adheres to spray booth walls. This self-wound product is protected by a white glassine paper with a differential release liner, which is removed after application to the wall panels.

Cost-effective ProTect captures overspray and dust particles, reducing static electricity and increasing the lux level in a spray booth. The material can be applied directly from the box, and a squeegee is all that is needed to easily overlap each vertical strip onto spray booth walls.

ProTect is also heat resistant up to 176°F (80° C), but depending on the frequency of use, it should be removed and replaced every three months or after every 1,000 hours of baking. Because the film is non-stretchable polyester, removal is hassle-free.

Teslin™ Label Face Stock

Strengthening a label’s bond is our number one priority. That is why Drytac takes strides to ensure its label adhesive can withstand the toughest environmental conditions. Chemical drum labels (GHS – Global Harmonization Systems), hazardous labels, tamper-evident labels, anti-static labels, and identification labels - or any label exposed to the outdoors or other tough setting – demand greater adhesion stability.

Our Teslin™ label face stock is an excellent example of what Drytac has developed to address labeling applications that require added durability. It is a 7 mil (179µ) white synthetic paper coated with an aggressive, pressure sensitive high tack acrylic adhesive and a single-sided siliconized, moisture-stable clay-coated release liner. Not only does it provide outstanding lay-flat characteristics, it is highly resistant to abrasions (scratching, scuffing) and moisture (water, weather).

The product adheres well to corrugated board, glass, fiber drums, and numerous plastic substrates that have low surface energy. It is also thermally stable up to 356°F (180°C), making it compatible with most print technologies, including flexographic, thermal transfer, inkjet, and laser.

Tire Labels

With our unique adhesive solutions, it has never been easier to eliminate tough tire labeling challenges. Specialist labeling technology is necessary due to the rough, low surface energy of a tire. Our adhesive labels are created to meet the performance requirements of automotive tire labeling because our adhesive is rubber-based, pressure sensitive and extremely aggressive. Our labels are durable, remain intact when applied to tread and are ideal for long-term application on tires.

We produce two adhesive labels for tire applications – a 2 mil (50µ) white metallized polyester label and a 3.3 mil (85µ) white/grey backed cast polypropylene label. Both have a high coat weight, aggressive rubber-based adhesive and a double-sided siliconized, white S/C glassine release liner.

The higher adhesive coat weights are application specific – a key advantage when considering summer vs. winter tires or hairy vs. shaved tires. Additionally, the high level of shatter resistance allows for one-piece label removal, and the gum pattern at the edges eliminates bleeding. We also offer optional siliconization on the back-side of the label to prevent it from sticking to the release liner.

Each tire tread label has a white printable surface designed for UV flexographic printing, and each performs well on flatbed printers. Both our polyester and polypropylene versions have excellent opacity and resistance to staining as well as superb heat and abrasion resistance. When required, these labels also provide superior thermal transfer printability.
