2 Decals for Challenging Surfaces

Industrial Decals with Super-Tac and Ultra-Tac adhesives from Stouse offer solutions to the most challenging projects. In a perfect world, decals would adhere to everything, but we know from experience that is not always the case. Some surfaces can actually be quite difficult for decal applications. If a standard permanent adhesive won’t stick to the surface, we often look to Super-Tac and Ultra-Tac for a resolution. Stouse offers both materials in digital 4-color process, expanding the creative possibilities from standard spot color options.

Full-color Industrial Decals like our Super-Tac and Ultra-Tac formulations are useful in a variety of tough situations. What is a difficult surface? Generally, problematic applications include uneven, blemished, or coated surfaces, and some plastics. Below are a few examples:

      • Dumpsters
      • Steel Drums
      • Storage Containers
      • Recycling Bins
      • Powder-Coated Surfaces (Ultra-Tac is recommended)
      • Portable Toilets or “Porta Potties”
      • Machinery
      • Heating and Air Conditioning Units
      • Kegs

In some cases, the surfaces these decals are applied to are not visually pleasing, but that does not mean the decals can’t be! Applying an eye-catching decal to a bland surface is a sure way to grab attention. Add overlamination to protect the decal against abrasion and some solvents, oil, gasoline and acids. With this product line, it is possible to achieve a creative design while using an aggressive adhesive.

When a project presents a difficult application surface, we always recommend testing samples prior to ordering. Stouse offers free samples for any of our standard items.

Our knowledgeable reps will offer guidance to get the project done right from start to finish!

Jon Bottorff

Thank you. This is my first order with Stouse and I must say, the customer service and professionalism I’ve received from your company is by far the best I’ve received from any ‘large’ company. For that, I’m grateful.

I often times cringe when dealing with a new company, especially a ‘large’ one. In a world where a society is overwhelmingly influenced by technology and automation, it’s AWESOME to get ‘personal service’ from a large company. I truly mean that.

I wish everyone at Stouse a Happy Holiday Season! Thank you all for being AWESOME!


In gratitude,

Joe Silva
