“When the EFI Armor clear coat is applied to the MPI 2600 Series, it provides a protective layer to safeguard printed graphics from any indoor elements, including scratching, weathering and chemicals,” said Stephen Emery, VP of ink and new business development at EFI.
EFI Armor is a UV-curable liquid that can be applied to the films either by roller or waterfall. In addition to its highly protective qualities, the EFI Armor UVF clearcoat extends durability for up to three years longer than without the protective layer. This brings the total durability of the Avery Dennison MPI 2600 Wall Films up to five years for indoor applications.
“EFI clear coat extends the durability of wall graphics created with the Avery Dennison MPI 2600 series and adds the protection needed in order for them to be cleaned,” said Jeff Losch, North America marketing director at Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions.
The chemical resistance of the EFI Armor UVF clear coat enables textured wall graphics to be cleaned on contact by everyday cleaning supplies, allowing for degerming of the films used in public spaces, such as hotel lobbies or hospital waiting rooms.
