NextBond™: The Future of Long-Term, Outdoor Durable Pressure Sensitive Specialty Print Media

Nekoosa introduces a new, solvent-free adhesive solution for outdoor durable wide format graphics


APPLETON, WISCONSINToday, Nekoosa announces the launch of NextBond™ UV-cured durable adhesive, a robust, eco-friendly and cost-effective alternative to traditional solvent-based adhesives for long-term print applications like displays, decals and signage.


NextBond™ is a solvent-free, non-toxic durable adhesive solution. Nekoosa streamlined the product process by curing the NextBond™ adhesive inline with UV lamps and removing all hazardous waste and harmful VOCs. Also, NextBond™ will not shrink and maintains adhesion strength when exposed to challenging outdoor environmental and chemical conditions, making it ideal for long-term printed graphics.


“We are proud to the be the first North American wide format specialty print media manufacturer to introduce this groundbreaking adhesive technology into the pressure sensitive durable graphics market,” says Bryan Baab, Nekoosa’s Product Development Manager – Wide Format. “With NextBond™, Nekoosa is setting a new standard by providing environmentally friendly solutions without compromising on the performance and affordability that our industry relies on.”


NextBond™ UV-cured, durable permanent and high-peel removable adhesive options are currently featured in three existing Nekoosa wide format product lines, and they will be adding these adhesives to more of their product lines soon.

  • Premium Vinyl: For long-term indoor and outdoor signage applications that require superior finishes, adhesives and liner options that extend durability to 5 years.
  • Overlaminates: Optimized with the NextBond™ UV-cured adhesive system to provide durability up to 5 years in critical long-term outdoor applications where environmental factors, moisture and abrasion are present.
  • Mounting Films: Permanent or removable optically clear polyester mounting film used to easily convert non-adhesive backed films to pressure sensitive materials with 3 years of outdoor durability.


$5 Nekoosa Bucks are also available in each product within the NextBond™ portfolio. Users can collect Nekoosa Bucks with rolls of these new products and other select Nekoosa wide format print media year-round and redeem them online for a gift card of their choice.


NextBond™ is available starting May 20, 2024, and can be purchased from Nekoosa’s distribution partners throughout the United States and Canada. Click here to request a free NextBond™ sleeve of printed samples. For more information, please contact us by visiting
