The motocross industry vigorously embraces Convex High-Bond with Pro-Shield laminate as the highest quality combination for MX bikes, ATVs, Sleds, and other power sport vehicles.

Industrial Labels

Convex High-Bond + Tuff-Cover Laminate

 

The ultimate combination for many industrial applications is Convex High-Bond media with Tuff-Cover laminate. The media's extremely high strength adhesion to stainless steel, paired with resilient, chemical resistant Tuff-Cover UV laminate, is a combination that will endure almost any harsh environment.

 

The Convex brand of vinyl media was originally developed to be paired with thick laminates for football helmet decals. Users have always loved the unique characteristics of Convex that allow them to apply thick, protective decals to complex curves without the decals wrinkling. Convex has evolved, and continues to evolve with a variety of adhesives and compatible laminates that are perfect for industrial and sport related markets.
