APA is a manufacturer of plotter, digital vinyls and laminates with outlets throughout Europe as well as Australia, New Zealand, South America, and Africa. APA UK Ltd supplies the APA WrapFilm widely used for vehicle liveries and more vinyls from its warehouse in Kent.

Research and development is ongoing at APA and the company recently launched a dry apply vinyl incorporating Air Free FT-System technology on the reverse. Here the adhesive has channels to that enable air to be easily pushed out during application for a flawless finish in quick time.

Scott Cowup, Marketing Director, says: "Customers love our dry apply vinyl with the AirFree FT-System. They say the time they're saving is phenomenal, and it's making them so much more competitive. What used to take a day to wrap is now done in two-thirds of the time with our new dry apply Air Free FT-System, and the results are superb."

In addition to a wide range of standard colours, APA has developed vinyls with special effects. These include carbon fibre (in white, silver, anthracite, and black), matt black, and a satin aluminium effect.

Scott continues: "I believe we were first company to manufacture carbon fibre effect vinyl and bring it to market a year or more ago. We also have the largest colour range in that product."

"APA customers have the added advantages of dealing with the manufacturer, which means competitive prices and close control over product quality."

APA UK offers a "before 12 noon delivery" as standard because, as Scott says: "We understand our customers often don't know what jobs are coming in until late pm and they can't wait around all day."
