It’s been called one of the greatest comebacks in football history: Liverpool FC’s home win against Barcelona, overturning a 3-0 first-leg deficit to win 4-3 on aggregate in the UEFA Champions League competition. And while Barça may not have been the stars of the show this time, the team’s bus—wrapped using materials from Drytac—certainly grabbed fans’ attention.
Covering the entire team bus including the windows, the vehicle wrap— featuring FC Barcelona’s colors and crest—was printed onto an innovative PVC material from Drytac’s Polar range, using an HP Latex 570 printer. The material was selected because it can be quickly printed on with consistent, strong coloring, and its easy removal without leaving marks or residue.
Steve Broad, European and Asia sales director for Drytac Europe, is a self-proclaimed ‘big Liverpool fan’ and was lucky enough to be in Liverpool on May 7 for the stunning second-leg match, as well as in Barcelona for the semi-final first leg.
“The actual bus drove past us on Tuesday and we spotted it outside the hotel in Liverpool where the Barcelona players were staying,” he says. “It’s always great to see Drytac products used for world-class applications—and even more so when it’s at a spectacular event like this match.”
The Drytac Polar range comprises a series of printable media designed for eye-catching applications in even the most extreme conditions, such as window displays in low temperatures or the environmental conditions endured by vehicle graphics.
In addition to vehicle, window, wall, and floor graphic media, laminating films and mounting adhesives, Drytac’s key product areas include high-performance tapes, industrial adhesives, and durable labels.
