Fluorescent Vinyl with long shelf life? 9 years 2 weeks ago #36

One of my customers wants to have fluorescent vinyl, but I have heard that most of the fluorescent stuff doesn't last long. The best quality being rated at 2 years.

Anyone know if there are companies that rate it for more than 2 years?

I had a customer that wanted fluorescent. I persuaded him to go with a bright yellow in the end. I explained how uv light degrades the fluorescent vinyl.

One thing that could help reflect the uv light a little would be to add a clear laminate or spray a laquer over it. I have not done this myself, but heard it suggested before. I don't think it would have a significant effect though.

I did notice that you are from Derbyshire. The sun is not so bright up there, so you might be ok:)

Thanks,

I will give 3M a go.

Looking at the info from Abbey Distribution, I notice the warranty is for vertical standing vinyl and for 3 years in Northern and Central Europe and 2 years in Mediterranean Europe and elsewhere. This isn't a problem, but I thought I would add it for interest.

We have recently started stocking a 3 year fluorescent vinyl designed for exterior vehicle graphics. It's available in red or yellow, and made by Aslan.
