APV offers Stencil Ink in a water-based chemistry for various rubber substrates including tire sidewalls, hoses, golf grips and more.
Decals are screen printed and applied using a post-cure heat method (time, temperature, pressure) to transfer the lettering and/or logo from a Mylar sheet onto the rubber surface or tire sidewall. The result is a crisp, bold decal with a high-end aesthetic. APV also helps customers finalize the design, color, and location of the decal and assists with design and procurement of the application equipment. Decals are offered in both water-based and solvent-based formulations and can be provided as Mylar sheets or individual cut-outs.
