Calendered vinyls are the most commonly used adhesive vinyls in your typical sign shop. The majority of the projects I work on, use calendered vinyls as the printing surface. These cost effective, versatile vinyls have many uses.

Within the category of calendered vinyls, the products vary dramatically in quality and longevity, from promotional to high performance vinyls. Lets look at the different products available.

High Performance Adhesive Vinyls as the names suggests, are a group of adhesive vinyls designed to last a long time, have minimal shrinkage, and can be used on curved surfaces. These adhesive vinyls are typically used on vehicles, with relatively flat surfaces, or signage that is designed for long term use. Another common use is cut letters for vehicles.

Intermediate Grade Adhesive Vinyls are the most commonly used. Generally these are designed to last up to 5 years outdoors. I use these grades for most of my indoor signage, and some outdoor signage. These products have a higher shrinkage rate, and are thicker (in caliper) than high performance adhesive vinyls, so have limited use on curved surfaces. Common uses are decals, magnetic signs, industrial signs, way finding signage, and real estate signage.

Economy or promotional adhesive vinyls are the least expensive calendared adhesive vinyls available, and are so for a reason. These typically shrink the most, and at best, have an outdoor life of one year. I only use this product on what we call throw away signage, short term plastic corrugated signs that are not expected to last more than 6 months.

Understanding the different types of adhesive vinyls available for large format digital printing

In the world of large format digital printing, the sign shop has a variety of adhesive vinyls to choose from. These vinyls range from inexpensive economy vinyls to pricey high performance products used in the vehicle wrap industry.

In this discussion we will introduce you to the main categories, and with follow-up posts, go into more detail.

Adhesive vinyls can be categorized into two main products, calendared and cast. These then can be broken down further into many sub-categories, depending upon their uses.

Calendered vinyls are typically less expensive than Cast vinyls, and are designed for shorter term applications, and flat surfaces. The difference between these two products is in the way in-which they are manufactured. As it was explained to me, calendared vinyl is produced in a process where the vinyl is poured onto a surface and stretched to the desired size and thickness… similar to the way pizza dough is rolled out. Though this process produces less expensive vinyls, the vinyl is constantly in a state of wanting to return to its original state ( before it was stretched) and so shrinks much more than its Cast counterpart.

Cast vinyl on the other hand is poured onto a surface to the desired size and thickness. This, more expensive process, produces a product that has no internal forces. Cast vinyls can be used for many more applications including wrapping around compound curves, such as those found on vehicles.
