New Training Video Shows How to Paint NovAcryl®

A new training video that simplifies understanding how to paint NovAcryl®, the world’s leading substrate for ADA Braille and accessible room identification signage, is now available from Nova Polymers. Painting photopolymer signs significantly expands the selection of colors and finishes available for sign fabricators and designers, and a clear topcoat is required on all photopolymer signs that are decorated sub-surface with paint, digital graphics or patterns in the base substrate.

The video, produced at Matthews Paint Company, presents all the proper steps and procedures relating to painting best practices and is informative for sign fabricators new to painting photopolymer as well as experienced sign painters. Subjects covered in the full-length video include: (1) safety issues relating to painting; (2) proper mixing techniques; (3) overview of the paint gun; (4) how to use a wet film gauge; and (5) proper spraying techniques.

“Nova Polymers produced this video to serve as a primer for sign fabricators to simplify the photopolymer painting process,” said Mike Santos, director of Sales and Product Development for Nova Polymers. “It’s all part of our mission to serve as a resource and provide added support for the sign fabrication community.”

Nova Polymers is the largest manufacturer and distributor of photopolymer sign products in the United States, Canada, Europe, the Middle East, and Australia.
