SPENCER, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--FLEXcon, an innovator in adhesive coating and laminating, today announced that it will host a webinar with SGIA, When to Apply Self-Adhesive Graphics to Paint. The free webinar will cover the importance of understanding when a paint is properly cured to receive graphics, to ensure customer satisfaction and avoid costly reprints and reinstallations.
The When to Apply Self-Adhesive Graphics to Paint presentation will explore the variables associated with painted surfaces such as plywood, drywall, and cinderblock and how to best use self-adhesives with these surfaces. For example, graphics with adhesives that are too low-tack may fall off, while graphics with overaggressive adhesives may damage the surface, leading to costly repairs. Attendees will also learn how to take into account aspects such as the brand of paint or the paint type (acrylic, latex, and oil-based) when applying self-adhesives. Presenters will explain when a paint is sufficiently cured to apply graphics and the difference between cured and dried, when a paint requires a more aggressive adhesive and test methods for paint curing timelines.
|Who:||Dennis Brunnett, Product Manager at FLEXcon and Jordan Smith, Technical Service Engineer at FLEXcon|
|When:||Wednesday, December 3, 2014 2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. ET|
