Our UV Polyacrylate adhesives are what make NU-COAT self-adhesive products so different and suitable for you.
NU-COAT’s range of wide-format adhesives is what makes our products so different – our UV-curing technology offers a unique combination of features.
We are one of the very first manufacturers worldwide to have chosen UV-curing technology for wide-format materials.
This technology is a speed curing process in which high intensity UV-C light instantly cures the coating.
UV polyacrylate adhesives will help you save time and money with a unique combination of features:
- Solvent-free, non-aqueous adhesive
- Non whitening – Excellent clarity
- Low odour – No VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds)
- Outstanding aging and heat resistance
- Usable in low temperature applications (close to O°C)
- Builds bond faster, resulting in significant time saving time
We have developed an extensive range of adhesives specifically for the requirements of our industry.
These adhesives are available coated on to white, clear and coloured PVC base films – monomeric or polymeric, or alternatively gloss, satin or matt finish non-PVC films.
Permanent Series – Permanent… with a Plus
PermPLUS (P) and WindowPLUS (W) adhesives
More than just a standard permanent adhesive.
This special adhesive is designed to be used all year round even when it’s raining or getting close to 0°C!
The adhesion is higher and the film bonds faster than the many other products described by others as ‘permanent’.
Furthermore, the excellent weather resistance of these adhesives also makes them perfect for glass decoration.
When used on CAD materials you’ll appreciate the ease of weeding.
The stronger and faster bond helps save time when transferring with standard application tapes.
XtraGrab Series – When you need a stronger adhesion
HighGRAB (H) adhesive
For a wide range of difficult surfaces including smooth and lightly textured walls, floors, ceramic tiles, carpet tiles, MDF, wood, plaster board, smooth LSE (Low Surface Energy) surfaces.
Where standard adhesives too often fail we recommend NU-COAT HighGRAB.

We have put together a 2 page sample illustration data sheet PDF to highlight some of the great features of our range of HighGRAB digital vinyls, including how the data stacks up when we compare our HighGRAB digital products against 3 main competitor products – click here.
UltraGRAB (U) adhesive
UltraGRAB adhesive goes a step further with extra-strong bond to tackle rough walls, floors, textured LSE (Low Surface Energy) surfaces and the like.
MaxGRAB (M) adhesive
MaxGRAB adhesive was developed to satisfy the extremely challenging demands encountered in external floor graphic applications.
The very high tack and high coat-weight of this adhesive combined with its ability to wet out (flow) into textures, makes it ideal even for rough surfaces including concrete, bricks, asphalt and tarmac.
Just like our Permanent Series, the XtraGrab Series adheres well at lower application temperatures and builds bond strength quickly.
Of course these adhesives will also stick with extreme high adhesion to more standard substrates if your application requires such an extreme bond.
airXit Option – For easier and faster application
A selection of our adhesives are available with airXit liner.
With this option, your chosen adhesive is supplied in a pattern creating fine air channels underneath the facefilm that enable a fast, easy, bubble free and dry application.
