Kernow Coatings’ recently launched FloorShark Dry Toner has successfully passed the R10 slip test after being tried and tested on a Xeikon 3500 digital press.

‘Our new FloorShark Dry Toner has performed outstandingly on the Xeikon 3500,’ explained Hendrik De Backer, sales manager EMEA at Kernow Coatings. ‘We are delighted with the results. The excellent cooperation with Xeikon has led us to this significant point, and we now plan to test the product on Xeikon’s top performing CX500 dry toner press where we anticipate similar results. In these challenging times, diversification and adaptation are key. We are excited to be able to introduce a unique market-leading product that’s been tried and tested and will open doors for more applications on Xeikon’s digital presses.’

FloorShark Dry Toner is a textured white R10 slip-resistant PET film that is receptive to dry toner print, with an optimised pressure sensitive adhesive for floor graphic applications. It is available in a 500mm or 330mm width.

Xeikon’s segment director for graphic arts, Dimitri Van Gaever, added, ‘This successful cooperation with Kernow Coatings opens up greater opportunities for our customers and meets the recent unprecedented and necessary demand for socially distanced floor signage. Now, with the new FloorShark with R10 rating, our customers can confidently print non-slip, resilient and creative floor decals to meet demand.’
