New MonsterTack ASLAN DFP 05 suitable for challenging surfaces

New digital printing film for the most difficult applications: MonsterTack ASLAN DFP 05. Will stick even at temperatures far below 0°C.

ASLAN, developer and manufacturer of self-adhesive films, is expanding its portfolio of digital printing media with another speciality film: MonsterTack ASLAN DFP 05 is a white, glossy self-adhesive film that sticks securely even to the most difficult surfaces and under the toughest conditions.

Difficult substrates
The core element of MonsterTack ASLAN DFP 05 is the solvent gas and lubricating oil resistant adhesive formula. It is this that makes the film adhere to surfaces which would usually be so problematic. Examples of this are applications on plywood panels of box trailers, 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, Moto-Cross vehicles and caravans/campers.

The characteristic
MonsterTack ASLAN DFP 05 perfectly supplements the UltraTack films DFP 06, 07 and 08, which are already established on the market. It is also suitable for bonding on rough surfaces inside and outside. Special benefits of note: It can be attached to flat or slightly curved surfaces from temperatures as low as -10° C – and it lasts up to 7 years outdoors. The polymer film can be printed with solvent, eco-solvent, latex and UV curable inks, as well as screen printing inks. Despite its extremely strong permanent adhesive, it can be removed from low-energy substrates and steel without leaving any residue. Additionally, the self-adhesive film is classified to salt spray test ISO 9227:2017.

Establishment in the market
Anja Falkenberg, marketing and sales director at ASLAN, is confident that the new digital printing film will quickly establish itself in the market: "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.”

This digital printing film is now available in the 1.22 m x 50 m format.
