Our MarkaSteel Skins printed by dye-sublimation and then laminated to our DaPlus disinfectant resistant film.

The steel we print on is coated on one side with a white dye-sublimate able dry erase coating.   Steel is sheared to 5 or 6 standard sizes from a 10,000 lb coil.   The Steel is also flattened so we can dye-sublimate it cleanly and have it sit very flat in either your frame or ours.   

Steel -- 24 gauge final thickness of .022 +-.002

  • Available in 24 gauge only .....  other gauges must be ordered in 40,000# lots

DaPlus - Chemical Resistant Overlay

  • 3 mil top quality optically clear polyester that we have treated with the best most chemical resistant clear dry erase surface available.   We then take our 10,000 ft roll and apply a quality optically clear pressure sensitive adhesive and use 1 3 mil polyester release liner to minimize the problems with paper liners.  

  • We apply the DaPlus via pressure rollers in a laminating shop so that no air bubbles are trapped.
