The exterior film used on SAGIPER products is weather and UV resistant. This high-performance material retains its gloss throughout its service life. In addition, the film’s low surface tension allows for relatively lower maintenance and a much easier clean up. Even graffiti can easily be removed with a special cleaner. The easy-to-clean effect of our product allows it to be used for new applications such as cladding on commercial buildings and residential communities. Even in places which are difficult to access with sprayers, the easy-to-clean product with its low surface tension stops dirt adhering.
SAGIPER’s highly durable exterior vinyl is a multi-layer film with an overall thickness of 170 – 180 μm. The top layer consists of a polyvinylidene fluoride film (PVDF) and absorbs more than 95 % of the UV-radiation, the second is transparent polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) and the base layer is a solid colour PMMA. The base layer contains Solar Shield Technology (SST), to further decrease heat build-up of the film and the laminated components.
Solar Shield Technology
Infrared radiation from the sun is simply reflected by SST to provide protection against excessive heat build-up resulting in cooler profiles. With SST, profiles retain their dimensional stability so that panels and trims remain secure. SST acts as a protective shield. Its reflective property safeguards the film itself, the adhesive and the profile. SST provides protection for SAGIPER’s exterior film, with dark colours and wood décors enjoying the most significant benefits. SST slows down the ageing process and prolongs the life of the PVC core and construction components.
Purmelt is a reactive polyurethane-based hotmelt which is used in a broad range of applications. Provided in various pack sizes, it allows use in all common application systems for high end applications in building & furniture, graphic arts & bookbinding, assembly and the transportation industry.
The superior performance level of Purmelt benefits excellent adhesion to many different substrates, where other adhesive types typically fail. With a coating thickness of 0.3 to 0.6 mm, Purmelt products, no matter
if for interior or exterior applications, provide outstanding results compared to conventional adhesive systems. Regardless of the application, Purmelt meets all the requirements and ensures optimum results in terms of pot life, exceptional initial tack and fast curing. Depending on air humidity and substrate moisture conditions, Purmelt can achieve 50-80 % ultimate bond strength in approximately 6 hours, with final curing achieved in 24 hours or less. After crosslinking, the Purmelt film displays high flexibility at both high and low temperatures and is resistant against most solvents used in industry or the home.
SAGIPER Green Initiative
SAGIPER is very proud to present its green initiative in PVC and vinyl material recycling. All PVC cutting debris, spare cuts and production line excess, is collected, melted down and formed into reusable gardening stakes, or as we like to call them, SAGISTAKES. This ensures that no PVC, or vinyl wrap in our factory ever goes to waste or thrown out.
