Innova pledges flexibility with NovaWeld Signfix 5

Innova Solutions has linked up with Signfab to develop a new adhesive solution that it says not only offers flexibility, but boasts “unrivalled” bond performance and clarity.

NovaWeld SignFix 5 is available in both 50ml and 400ml cartridge sizes

Designed primarily for the manufacture of acrylic faced rimless and rim and groove letters, NovaWeld Signfix 5 can bond to stainless or aluminium return, as well as acrylic faces. This level of flexibility was established after consulting with Signfab, which specialises in letter manufacturing for sign work.

Expanding on this, Innova says: “After the four or five minute fixture time, the letter is securely bonded with the flexibility required to allow for the differential expansion that occurs between the acrylic and metal return when the letter is installed.

“Historically, adhesives have not been able to combine flexibility with both clarity and speed of cure. This has led to various methods and products being used for this application, which has resulted in costly failures when letters have been subjected to external conditions.

“While not the most effective of joint designs, NovaWeld SignFix 5 compensates for this by exhibiting tremendous bond strength to both substrates, coupled with flexibility to bond dissimilar materials, whilst aesthetically.”

Innova goes on to offer further backing for the new product, explaining that it has undergone a “rigorous testing procedure” in both lab conditions and external weather cycles to ensure its quality. This testing took place over a period of 12 months, and such was the success of this process that NovaWeld SignFix 5 is already being used by some of the industry’s leading letter manufacturers.
