Large-format digital print finishing specialist Seal has launched a double-sided adhesive film to enable the mounting of digital prints to a wide variety of media.

Print Mount Universal is a polyester film with a water-based adhesive that Seal claims is suitable for use in interior applications for up to six years and external applications for three years.

"On the transparent polyester film there is an environmentally-friendly, water-based adhesive film with high adhesive strength which is resistant to aging and permanently flexible, and which will neither dry out nor leave grease spots," said Seal technical services manager Marc Hansing.

Print Mount Universal is said to be suitable for mounting prints onto foamboard, PVC, polystyrene, polycarbonate, laminated chipboard and aluminium.

The material is supplied in 50m rolls in widths from 1,040mm-1,550mm. It uses a single layer of double-sided silicon release paper for protection.
