With the right film, the right application tools and the right techniques, vinyl graphics can be applied to textured wall surfaces such brick and concrete block. Many of old time decal applicators would heat a cast vinyl with an industrial heat gun, and burnish the hot, pliable film into the textured surface using a rivet brush for this job. Read more
Protecting VinylEfx Graphics with Urethane Clear Coat
Airbrush artist, Jimmy Jackson of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, has used VinylEfx films in his motorcycle designs for many years. In all of that time, he has never experienced a graphics failure. How does he do it?
In the photograph shown below, Jimmy first painted the ghost flames as the background. Then he applied this tribal design which he created using a VinylEfx Multilens film. After pin striping the outline around the film, he protected his artwork with four coats of a urethane clear coat.
Since each paint system is different, test the compatibility of the film with the clear coat prior to using it on a job. You can request a sample of VinylEfx from your distributor or you can click here to request a sample directly from us. As we like to tell people...test, don't guess.
