Vinyl (Material)

What makes vinyl fabric so attractive is that it is very resistant to wear and tear. Vinyl doesn’t get scratched or damaged with ease. It is also flame-resistant.

Another crucial benefit of vinyl is that it is durable. The material will withstand daily use over a number of years. It's also economical when compared to other materials. This material is a steal if you are working with a limited budget.

The reason why vinyl material is great:

• Waterproof
• Weatherproof
• UV Resistant
• Fade Resistant
• Durable
• Great Strength & Stretch
• Excellent Abrasion Resistance
• Easy to Clean

Eco-Solvent Ink

AM’s Ink is durable, it does not fade even when exposed to the Sunlight over long periods of time.

What does our Ink comprise of?

4 very important Ingredients:

1. Automotive grade pigment - Is very durable. Cars are always exposed to the Sun's rays as well as many other unfavourable weather conditions but the paint colour is able to withstand that without degrading.

2.Solvent - Has highly penetrable properties.

3. Resin - Very sticky, high quality substance. It won’t dry before the solvent does, works more like glue for the entire solution to come together. Binds all the ingredients together.

4. Secret Ingredient- It wouldn’t be a secret if we told.
