KlearWipe is a long-term clear dry-erase lamination film with a very innovative surface, specially developed for long term dry-erase usage. Focus was set on guaranteeing perfect writability with all types of whiteboard markers as well as offering suitability for liquid chalk markers and opening new application opportunities for the film. Markers can always be erased without damaging the film or leaving any ghosting. Moreover, KlearWipe is the most scratch resistant dry-erase material you’ll find in the industry, says Kernow.

It is manufactured with a new adhesive designed for lamination on UV-cured inks (along with all the other inks) and for manual wet application. It is compliant with the EN Standards EN71-3: 2013 which is required for the safety of the toys. KlearWipe will be offered in 1372 and 1524 mm widths.

WallSharK is a new film for wallcoverings: it is self-adhesive, PVC-free, slightly textured, very stable and scratch resistant; it will not shrink even after longer application and enables perfectly invisible butt-joint applications.

This coating will offer excellent colour gamut options for all types of wide format inks. The 170μm film was developed from FloorSharK using the same shark-skin ink-receptive technology.

The adhesive is designed for internal smooth walls with an emphasis of a good adhesion and suitability on most wall paints and lacquers. The stability of the material is very forgiving and will not distort or stretch when there’s a need for repositioning during the application of the material. WallSharK will be offered in 1372 and 1524 mm widths.

Wide format product manager Renée Kruit says: “Is it because it’s PVC-free or that you don’t need to laminate? Or because it is so much more tear resistant than PVC and will not distort or stretch when applying? It’s a combination of these features and more.

“With FloorSharK you can cover big areas of floor and still have a perfect alignment of your panels, making it an industry favourite all over the world.”
