Taking place from October 18-20 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia, PRINTING United will welcome thousands of visitors from all corners of the printing market, as well as attendees from related industries.

At its own booth (B13119), Drytac will display a range of adhesive science solutions including print media, laminates, and mounting adhesives, with a focus on demonstrating how these products can support visitors with window, wall, and floor graphics work.

Among the highlights on the Drytac booth will be products from the new Drytac Zero collection of non-PVC options for use in the graphics, signage, and display industries. Samples will be available on stand for visitors to touch and feel.

Drytac will also run live demonstrations of its products and transform the booth each day of the event, showcasing both the quality of its materials and ease of use.
