Spedian tests Superlite ad panels’ durability

Published:  24 July, 2016

Vehicle graphics company Spedian, whose advertising panels are used by more than 80 local authorities to raise revenue, has tested its Spedian Superlite refuse application at MIRA.

The system was subjected to washing resilience, aerodynamic loading and abuse and repair simulation testing and throughout the test activities, observations were made on visible movement of the graphics including rippling bulging, and flapping, any losses in adhesive retention, any additional unzipping of adhesive tape or tearing where sheets were intentionally cut and ease of repair and post repair.

The overall result was that there was no loss in visible adhesive retention and no rippling of graphics sheets.

Spedian CEO Lawrence Craig said: ‘We are delighted at the results of the MIRA test. We have invested heavily in research and development during which we conducted our own trials to ensure that we delivered a product which met the standards required by operators.’

The Spedian Superlite system is guaranteed for the lifetime of the vehicle, is maintenance free and is guaranteed to stay colourfast from 12 months.

Spedian says it is quick and easy to install and can also be easily removed with no damage to the vehicle substrate which is an added benefit for leased vehicles.
