These overlaminates offer a durable ther- mal laminating solution that is com- pletely waterproof. These polyester (PET) overlams are stronger than other thermal products on the mar- ket, making them ideal for demand- ing applications including outdoor signage, menus, cards, and much more. Endura Overlams are available with UV protection for outdoor projects requiring up to five-year durability. Compared to pressure sensi- tive lams, Endura products offer equivalent per- formance at about 1/3 less the price. Plus, the quality far exceeds that of low-grade, self-wound pressure sensitive products. For information, visit www.dkgroup.com. Wrap Squeegee Geek Wraps, Oakland Park, Florida, introduces the Geek Wraps Hydro Edge Squeegee Series. The new Hydro Edge Squeegee is manu- factured with micro-cells inside the covered edge. This technology holds installer-preferred liquid lubri- cant and supplies the micro-fiber edge with a constant supply of liquid during installation. Due to the extreme angles which the squeegee is held during installation, gravity keeps apply- ing the liquid that has accumulated and is held internally in the cells, outward to the covered edge until it is depleted and needs to be replenished. This process allows the installer to work much more efficiently, greatly reducing the need for re- application of liquid as it allows for longer runs of installation time with the edge remaining wet, resulting in more productiv- ity for the installer.

Innovations to the line include a stiffer facestock that offers improved panel-to-panel alignment since it can be reposi- tioned without stretching the film face, and a new adhesive pattern designed to offer easy installation. B-Free Window Films are available in three finishes: dusted (JX5798MBF v2 and JJ5798MBF v2), frosted (JX5796MBF v2 and JJ5796MBF v2) and clear gloss (JX5999MBF v2 and JJ5999MBF v2). The films are designed to be used on flat or simple, curved, clear and translucent surfaces and for backlit graphics. The films can be applied printed or unprinted. If printed, the films are compatible with solvent, eco-solvent, UV inkjet and latex inkjet printers. For information, visit www.mactac.com/graphics.
