New RTape Brite Overall

RTape recently introduced an improved version of its Brite Overall Iridescent Silver film to the VinylEfx® metalized vinyl product line. Advances in tooling technology have rendered what normally is an unappealing shim line invisible. A second benefit of the new tooling is a clearer reproduction of the iridescent pattern, which improves the overall appearance of this holographic rainbow film. The exceptional clarity and radiant display of colors of the new film transforms the plain photographic image into something not so plain. The eye-catching film attracts the viewer’s attention, making it a perfect choice for Point-Of-Purchase displays, store window graphics, tradeshow posters, labels, and product identification.

The new Brite Overall film is available in both Decorative and Durable series. Decorative series VinylEfx® films are ideal for indoor applications. Durable series films are suitable for outdoor graphics, providing up to three years exterior durability.


VinylEfx® vinyl films are printable using a wide range of digital printers and with solvent-based and UV-curable screen print inks.



Printability. If you can print on vinyl, you can print on RTape’s new Brite Overall Iridescent Silver film. Unlike silver polyesters, VinylEfx® films require no special top coating. The films are printable using thermal transfer, solvent, ecosolvent and UV inkjet digital print technologies. VinylEfx® films are also printable using solvent-based and UV curable screen print inks.

Many shops, which have printed wall murals in which the ink bleeds to the edge of the panel, have experienced edge curl issues with a variety of vinyl films. For permanent wall graphics applications, I would consider using Arlon’s DPF 8000 film.

It features an aggressive, permanent pressure-sensitive adhesive that sticks to those “hard-to-stick-to” surfaces.
