    Nu-Coat is a relatively new brand/product range offered by All-Print supplies.
    I have zero experience using the vinyl and there is not many posts on this site discussing it, so I welcome any and all feedback on it.

    It is good that your first views on it are positive. by that I mean its reaction to the cold etc.

    I look forward to you and others giving further feedback and views. the more the merrier to gain good unbiased opinions on products we may all use daily.

    So far so good.

    Not even a hint of curling, I left a couple of 1.5m & 3m print runs loosely rolled standing up on my drying rack for two days. Laminated them on a rollover table at walking speed with no bunching. Reloaded some to my VG for realignment & cutting with no issues, the weeding was easy. Hand squeeged some smaller signs, 600 x 400 dibond. It’s actually harder to get an air bubble than not. I even used an old squeegee with a well used felt wing and it didn’t leave the little scratch marks that you would expect.

    The laminate is sold as ‘printable’, so there fore is thicker than other lams, but I didn’t have to alter my usual cutting force. I haven’t tried printing this laminate yet as it has a kraft backing which I think might be an issue with the VG’s heat.

    I even applied a laminated print this morning with the air temp reading 2 degrees C and the dibond felt pretty dam cold, not even the slightest problem.

    I can’t get over how good this stuff is. Manufactured in Wales, so maybe engineered for this part of the world (I’m in Ireland). I just hope that it has the longevity that it says.

    Going to give the monomeric a try next week.
