McLogan Manufacturers Spotlight – A Guide to Avery Vinyl for Signage & Vehicle Wraps

Intermediate Vinyl:

This intermediate Avery Vinyl is a mid-quality grained vinyl.  It is very durable and can last up to five years before it starts to fade and crack. This vinyl is typically used for car stickers, decals, signage and banners . However, constant exposure to the weather can cause buckles and bubbles to form in the vinyl. This vinyl is also a calendered vinyl so it is best suited to flat surfaces and not recommended for uneven or contour surfaces.

Cast Vinyl:

Whether it is a flat or a contour surface, cast vinyl easily molds to all surfaces. This is the most popular Avery Vinyl and is highly recommended for decals and vehicle wraps. It adheres very well to all kinds of rivets.

Avery cast vinyl is highly resistant to water, heat and extreme weather and is the preferred vehicle wrap for cars, trucks and boats due to its excellent conformity to non-flat surfaces. Cast vinyl is sturdy and long lasting, typically good for 7+ years .
