Durability of Media
The durability of the printed image is dependent on the fading characteristics of the inks used. Please consult the ink manufacturer for technical advice.
If the printed graphics are likely to be exposed to corrosive liquids, smoke, fumes or a highly polluted atmosphere, or if there is a likelihood of scratching & friction, it is strongly recommended that the prints are laminated with a UV stabilized vinyl lamination media with a solvent-based adhesive.
This media, when printed and protected as indicated above (with a laminate), can have an image life expectancy of up to 6 months.
Usage Instructions
It is recommended to condition the media in the normal printing environment for 24 hours before printing.
While printing, care must be taken to modify the print file to suit the ink limit of the media. For best results, please ensure proper colour calibration.
The media should be printed on within the specified ink limit. Exceeding the ink limit can lead to longer drying time, bleeding and lower resolution.
Printed media should be thoroughly dried before rolling-up for transport to avoid ink smearing.
Post-processing for hem is not required. If necessary, banner tape is preferred to sewing. Grommets should be placed through 2 layers in the hemline.
Corner grommets should be placed where the vertical and horizontal hemlines meet, so that they pass through the 4 layers of the media.
A fresh pair of cotton gloves should be used while handling the bare media to avoid sweat, grease and oil transfer on to the media that could interfere with the print quality.
When not in use, the media should be stored in its original packing in a vertical position.
