CHOOSING THE RIGHT MD5
Load a roll of Metamark’s flagship digital media, Metamark MD5, into your printer, and the results you’ll achieve will make you think you’ve had a hardware upgrade. MD5 prints like no other pressure sensitive media out there. That’s what makes it the choice of big brands, successful sign producers, printer manufacturers and printer engineers the world over. Did you know though, that the industry’s favourite digital media comes in a number a variations and that each has its own application spectrum?
If you want the pure and undiluted MD5 experience, all you have to do is ask for Metamark MD5 when you’re ordering digital media from Metamark. This amazing media delivers the full potential and then some from all modern digital printers. Load it up in your solvent, UV, EcoSolvent or Latex printer and you could be forgiven for thinking you’d had a hardware upgrade. Put another way, why upgrade your printer when you can upgrade your media – to Metamark MD5.
Metamark MD5A doesn’t give trapped air a chance. Imagine that. You get all the benefits you know and love and that come delivered as standard with every roll of Metamark MD5, backed with our MetaScape adhesive system that cleverly gives air trapped under the film during application a way out. Apply it dry, wipe trapped bubbles away with your hand. Squeegee down. That’s the job done. It’s fast. It’s easy. It’s Metamark MD5A.
We’ve taken our best performing digital face film, our MetaScape air egress adhesive and a special blocking pigment and combined the lot in one incredibly useful film. It’s MD5 so it prints brilliantly. It’s MetaScape so it applies effortlessly. It has a blocking inclusion so strongly coloured substrates and image detail you’re applying over don’t show through. Brilliant idea. Brilliant product.
Some surfaces are difficult to stick to. That’s a shame. That’s because those surfaces have a low-energy characteristic that challenges conventional adhesives. Precisely why you need an unconventional solution. It’s Metamark MD5A-H. It sticks to low energy surfaces reliably and has our premium MetaScape air evacuation feature too. Think of it as MD5 you can use where MD5 might not work. Metamark has the answer.
This time we are giving you the same best performing face film, with the outstanding print performance but you can have confidence that it will stick to those low energy surfaces because this is the High Tack version, but with a clear adhesive.
If the substrate you want to cover is a particularly strong colour or if there’s detail there you need to cover up, reach for the Metamark MD5-B. It’s MD5 with a blocking adhesive that obscures the substrate colour so that it doesn’t show through your print. MD5 print quality of course. No under-colour problems to manage. You know you have a use for this one. We know you have too. Ask us for a sample to try.
We’ve developed this product for you. We know you like MD5. We know you want strong covering power and no show-through. We know that you occasionally have to work with difficult low energy surfaces. Now you can. MD5-H-B handles the lot and does so Metamark style. Why risk the job on a material that works, just? Now there is a Metamark MD5 that works – no matter how tough the going gets.
Do you think we have covered all bases?, you've got a solution for every possible need? … well we have, but we have more options up our sleeves. Watch this space.
