What is cast vinyl?

Cast vinyl is the most common way of producing vinyl for commercial use. The process starts with liquid PVC, with a solvent mixed in. This liquid material is then poured into what looks like a gigantic baking pan (a flat mold) and sent through an oven on a conveyor belt. After this process, the is cooled, and the solvent dried, leaving behind a sheet of flexible, durable, cast vinyl. This vinyl is thinner than calendered vinyl, as there is less control over the thickness of the material, as gravity is primarily responsible for the shape and thickness of the vinyl.

Long Exterior Lifetime

Perfect for Curved Surfaces

One of the first things you'll notice when handling a cast vinyl decal is that it's not rigid at all. Cast vinyl is extremely flexible and formable, and it is the best choice of vinyl for non - flat surfaces. Cast vinyl will effortlessly conform to the shape of the surface it is applied to. This makes them perfect for car doors, trailers, or flexible surfaces. Stick these to mudflaps, yard signs, and more!
The process of casting makes the output material very durable and resistant to physical wear. The cast vinyl has a much longer exterior lifespan than calendered vinyl. Cast vinyl can last up to 7 years outdoors. This vinyl is extremely UV resistant, and the colors and material will take much longer to decay under intense UV radiation. Decals made with cast vinyl are better suited for long term applications.
