Manufacturer of self-adhesive films Aslan has expanded its digital print media portfolio with MonsterTack Aslan DFP 05, a glossy white self-adhesive film that it says sticks securely even to the most difficult surfaces and under the toughest conditions.

The new MonsterTack material has a solvent gas and lubricating oil-resistant adhesive formula that helps it adhere to surfaces which would usually be problematic, such as applications on plywood panels of box trailers, which are often equipped with a dirt-repellent surface; construction, agricultural and industrial machines subject to extreme dirt and mechanical stress; petrol pumps, powder-coated surfaces and low-energy substrates, ABS plastics, motocross vehicles and caravans/campers.

MonsterTack DFP 05 complements the existing UltraTack DFP 06, 07 and 08 films. It is also suitable for bonding on rough surfaces indoors and out. It can be attached to flat or slightly curved surfaces in temperatures as low as -10° C and it lasts up to seven years outdoors.

The polymer film can be printed with solvent, eco-solvent, latex and UV curable inks, as well as with screen printing inks. Despite its strong permanent adhesive, it can be removed from low-energy substrates and steel without leaving residue. The self-adhesive film is also classified to salt spray test ISO 9227:2017.

Anja Falkenberg, marketing and sales director at Aslan, commented, ‘We at Aslan have been able to prove, time and again in the past, that we are able to meet, understand and solve the challenges in sign making and digital printing. We are proud that the MonsterTack Aslan DFP 05 fills a gap in the world of self-adhesive films. This requires know-how and a lot of development work and it is what Aslan has stood for more than 70 years. The result is a film that is extremely easy to process despite the high demands.’
