Chicago, IL – GPA is proud to announce the addition of AlumiGraphics® pressure sensitive aluminum foil media to their product offering for wide format presses. AlumiGraphics® goes where other materials would not dare, including asphalt, concrete and brick to transform overlooked spaces into cost-effective mass marketing platforms.
GPA offers this rugged material in two different finishes:
AlumiGraphics® SMOOTH has a non-glare, satin finish ideal for rigid wall surfaces such as concrete, tile and asphalt. It is popular for building wraps, column signage, parking garage wall graphics and exterior wall and façade graphics.
AlumiGraphics® GRIP has a slip-resistant, reflective finish for rigid walkway surfaces such as brick, stucco and concrete block. It is commonly used for sidewalk and walkway graphics; entrance and vestibule graphics; stairway graphics; signage for patios, courtyards and pools; parking space and curb markings; and for sports venue marketing. It is safe to walk on in both wet and dry conditions, and meets ASTM, CSIRO and British standards for slip resistance.
AlumiGraphics® GRIP and SMOOTH outperform other materials with their flexibility, printability, extreme durability and ease of application. Unlike vinyl-based media that can retract and peel, foil media has no memory or shrinkage, so it is not affected by moisture or temperature changes. You can rest assured that AlumiGraphics® fits in with your sustainable print initiatives since it can be disposed of with aluminum recycling and does not contains PVC or hazardous elements.
AlumiGraphics® is a very pliable material that naturally conforms to rough surfaces, which makes installation and removal a breeze…no heat or professional installation required. Its flexible characteristics help it blend in so well that graphics look like they were painted on. Harsh weather extremes are no problem; it performs beautifully in hot, cold and wet conditions. Since AlumiGraphics® can be easily cut to shape, it has never been simpler to bring creative applications to life.
GPA offers AlumiGraphics® in a variety of roll sizes, including 26.5" x 10', 53" x 30', 53" x 75', and 53" x 150' in both the SMOOTH and GRIP finishes to let you choose the perfect size for your next project. AlumiGraphics® SMOOTH is also compatible with offset presses; contact GPA for custom sheeting options.
