STOW, Ohio – Oct. 13, 2014 – MACtac® Distributor Products donated IMAGin® RoughRAP™ to transform a MRI machine in Sant Joan de Deù Children’s Hospital in Barcelona, Spain. The renovation was completed by applying space-themed, self-adhesive films printed by the Spanish company, demibold, with HP Latex Inks to the entire outside of the medical device.

In June 2014, HP initiated a project aimed to improve the comfort of the young patients visiting the children’s hospital. The update to the MRI facilities of the hospital involved completely covering the large scanner that most children see as frightening. As a result, the room is now re-named the “Spatial Zone,” a place where children can make-believe they are an astronaut instead of a patient.

“Thanks to our partnership with HP and demibold, we were able to assist in turning an intimidating medical device into a place where children can feel much more at ease,” said Brittany Franzen, marketing administrator, MACtac. “We were pleased to offer IMAGin RoughRAP to complete the project and have no doubt that the children will be more comfortable when facing the frightening medical devices as a result of the stunning installation.”

IMAGin RoughRAP is a 2.1-mil gloss white high-performance vinyl designed for signage, murals, point-of-purchase graphics on brick walls and rough textured surfaces. It is ideal for printing on solvent and eco-solvent wide-format machines and has an ultra-white facestock for vibrant graphics.
