The South Wales-based self-adhesive vinyl manufacturer has launched a velvet wrap, currently available in six colours, with a seventh to be released later this year. The patented material, which according to KPMF can withstand jet-washing, has been developed with two European partners.

It has also unveiled the Starlight visual effects range, which includes sparkle and pearlescent effects. The range also includes a vinyl overlaminate in four colours that can be combined with standard colour vinyl.

Both ranges are available as standard in 1.52m x 25m rolls, although bespoke orders can be catered for, and KPMF is also able to colour-match for specific requirements.

Managing director of the Newport-based company Rob Musto said the new laminates were targeted at the automotive industry. “This is very much going to be a fashion related item and I think we’ll see people getting their cars temporarily fully or partially wrapped.”

The business, which is part of KPMF USA, is also developing a 3D effect product for vehicle wrapping that gives an embossed effect to whatever surface it is applied to.

Further details were not available but the range is due to be released in September.
