After hearing so much about arlon SLX, we as a company decided to give it a go. So far, the feedback from our in-house installers and sub-contractors throughout the UK has been excellent. So I decided to give it a go myself and wrap this van here today.
My names Rob Lambie and I have been installing vehicle graphics, and vehicle wraps for the past 29 years. In that time, my company has designed, manufactured and installed around 30,000 vehicles ranging from a small smart car, up to an articulated lorry.
Around seven years ago, we switched to Arlon 6000XRP and have been using it ever since on our full vehicle wraps, partial wraps and vehicle graphics.
Like the XRP the colour output was excellent. The general handling was really good, and due to the low initial tack, the new flight technology helps speed up the application no end for one person. It allows them to manage an entire side of a van on their own using only magnets, it allows them to lift and lay the film, and it allows them to lift and lay the film, slide it round about, do whatever they want with it until they are comfortable with the position that it is in. Then it allows them to move forward and apply it.
My personal opinion is that the speed of application is a crucial money-saving aspect for any vehicle wrapper. The fact that this is a quality cast film gives you extra peace of mind that after the job is complete, there is going to be no come-backs.
My Overall thoughts on Arlon SLX are:
* Excellent Print Quality
* Speed of Application
* Excellent conformability
* Handles very well and the reposition ability is great.
* It has low to zero static charge, And it gives you peace of mind that it will not fail in a recessed area.
* It doesn’t stretch easily unless it is required to do so.
* A more important aspect for the wrapper is that when it comes to the end of the vinyl’s life, it removes clean, quick and easily.
