Drytac Introduces New Foam Board Edge Finishing System


Drytac has added the first edge finishing machine specifically designed to work with a heat-sensitive foam display boards to its product line.

The DES-4Foam utilizes precise pressure and cutting mechanisms, along with Drytac's proprietary Edge Secure™ adhesive, to apply PVC and ABS edging on boards like Gatorfoam®, Sintra® /Forex, Kappaboard, X-Board and Ecoboard®.

Compatible with boards ranging in thicknesses from 3/16" (5mm) to 1 ¾" (45mm), the system decreases the need to inventory multiple boards with different foam core types or face material colors and allows the increased use of environmentally friendly recycled boards.

Edging can be applied to blank boards as well boards direct-printed on flatbed printers and boards with images already mounted and laminated.  According to Drytac, the edge finishing tape will be available in a variety of colors, including red, blue, black and chrome.

Drytac plans to demonstrate the DES-4  at both the Photo Marketing Association (PMA) tradeshow to be held March 3-5 in Las Vegas, NV and at the International Sign Association (ISA) show to be held April 15-18 also in Las Vegas, NV.
