Cooley Bright Colour Selection
At Cooley, we’ve used our 72 years of experience in the sign and outdoor industries and our extensive knowledge in polymer chemistry to create our COOLEY BRITE® line of white and eradicable substrates.
Flexible, yet durable, COOLEY BRITE possesses excellent translucency in any backlit sign and awning application.
Cooley’s white substrates are translucent, flexible, and durable and feature excellent lay-flat characteristics.
Eradicable coloured substrates are engineered for high colour brilliance and consistent colour translucency in any backlit sign or awning application.

Eradication using COOLEY MAGIC® eradication solution, COOLMASK® eradication mask and COOLTHANE® top-coated COOLEY BRITE offers the fastest, most economical method of sign and awning decoration available.
Ideal for eradication, screen printing, heat transfer, and pressure-sensitive applications.
Advanced scrim design enhances graphics effects to provide superior quality and luminescent colours. Lightweight and flexible for simple installation.
All colours available with COOLTHANE topcoat for easy cleaning and added protection.

VinaGARD® fabrics by VINTEX INC. have soft supple polymer surfaces that resist crazing and cracking common in stiff laminated textiles.
Because Vintex® products are formed by a state-of-the-art extrusion coating method, no glueing of component layers is necessary.
Vintex unique extrusion coating process bonds their exclusive polymer coating to a high-strength, resistant textile. The surface is sealed with a cleanable topcoat, which protects the flexible barrier from the accumulation of dirt and inhibits UV light degradation.
The result is a bonded product, which stays together longer, under harsher conditions and remains more pliable at lower temperatures.

Awnings and Canopies Graphics Application
ACRYLIC VINYL ENAMEL PAINT
One of the basic methods of applying graphics to materialS. This special type of enamel is formulated to adhere to flexible surfaces without shrinking or cracking.
This results in a long-lasting and durable product. Acrylic enamel is available in virtually any colour or shade imaginable.
PRESSURE-SENSITIVE VINYL FILM
Pressure-sensitive vinyl film is available in both opaque and translucent styles to accommodate application in either backlit or non-backlit awnings. This film is usually computer cut on a vinyl plotter, which results in a very clean and sharp graphics image.
The background fabric is first masked and then, using an eradication solution, the coloured topcoat is removed from this specially designed fabric to expose a white background.
The now-white area may be left as is or further enhanced by overlaying pressure-sensitive vinyl film to produce a superior-quality graphic design.
