Oliver Guenther, senior director marketing and channel strategy for Mactac Europe brand, said: "MACal 9800 Pro is one of our most important premium-quality films with bright, opaque and long-lasting colours using high-quality pigments. The solvent adhesive formulation avoids issues such as cracks, edge-lifting and shrinkage. These 16-colour options join an existing range of 100 high gloss colours."

The expanded MACal 9800 Pro range includes four new grades (black and white in matt and gloss), two bubble-free grades (black and white, gloss), six matt colours and three metallic colours. Adhesion for all is on flat and curved surfaces; durability is ten years for black and white, eight years for colours, and five years for metallics.

According to Guenther, it can match almost any colour needed by a converter, with precision and quickly. Converters can send a sample of the required colour and will receive an initial colour match sample within two weeks. "We have also improved our colour matching service, which is now available for as few as 15 reels for all films other than high-tack and bubble-free."
