SolarGard Has Made XenithIR byDesign
SolarGard has introduced its XenithIR, the company’s coolest interior temperature yet. Made through a proprietary technology that the company says leverages the most advanced ceramic materials available today, XenithIR offers clear transmission of cellular and other data signals, and a true black hue that is marketed as blocking more than 99% of UV rays, to shield passengers from skin damage and high-end interior furnishings from premature fading.
SolarGard also has opened the door to byDESIGN decorative films, which it says blends privacy and sophistication for a functional, contemporary aesthetic that’s available in a variety of styles and opacities.
Roland’s TrueVIS SG2-640, SG2- 540 and SG2-300 printer/cutters are now available, and feature high quality color and cutting-edge features. The SG2 series features TR2 ink for a wide color gamut and vivid print output at a minimal ink cost per square foot. These machines also offer smart, new print/cut features, such as automated pinch rollers. Desktop devices can be replaced by a 30-inch SG2-300 printer/cutter, which offers customization opportunities, or users can expand sign, vehicle graphics, commercial print or other customization business with a SG2-640 or SG2-540 printer/cutter designed to provide premium graphics output at an economical price.
Avery Dennison Offers Colorful Options
Avery Dennison has unveiled its spring 2020 Rugged and Luxurious color collection, which includes six new color and texture options for its Supreme Wrapping Film portfolio.
Rugged Supreme Wrapping Film is a 3D conformable, textured, color change film that gives vehicles the look and feel of a bed liner without the permanent application. Rugged is available in four colors: onyx, combat green, bedrock grey and marsh green.
Luxurious Supreme Wrapping Film features the new obsidian black, the company’s deepest, blackest pigment yet, and satin dark grey, a rich hue.

These films are marketed as adding privacy, style and customization without sacrificing natural light, the companies report.
