Hi Tac Printable advice please!

Hi all
Am after a little bit of advice please if any of you can help!
We have been printing for a number of years and using the M and P series from a well known supplier for our day to day "eco sol" printing with no issues, but we have now been approached to print for a Design house who have asked for Hi Tack
Matt and Gloss that will stick to low energy surfaces and ABS plastics, going to be using it for the following.

. Domed Stickers
. Wall Decals
. Motorcycle plastics
. Sports equipment

A few of our suppliers all do a High Tack printable vinyl but there is nothing better than feedback from those who are already using it!
Just like some feedback on what your using and any stay away from advice please.

Thanks in advance.

Hi

As mentioned already the Mactac WW300 works really well.

We've also used a fair amount of Vion 3000 and 5000 Hi-tack from Wm.Smith and again that works really well on more difficult surfaces.

Cheers
Dave

I've been using Hexis high tack with no issues. Just ordered some MD5 high tack to try out, should be good for low energy plastics etc.

If in doubt Arlon DPF8000, but make sure you don't get roped into removing :lol: We're just testing some on an external concrete floor with anti slip laminate.

Usual hightack we used is MDP-H, we've also used WW300 for wall graphics.
