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 stabilised vinyl lamination film 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 in indoor conditions.
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. For further assistance, please consult our Application Specialists or contact our HelpDesk.
The media should be printed on within the specified ink limit. Exceeding the ink limit can lead to longer drying time, bleeding, lower resolution and poor adhesion of the lamination film.
Printed media should only be protected by a cold, UV stabilised, pressure sensitive laminate. The lamination film must be checked for compatibility with the media. For increased stiffness & rigidity, laminate the front & back with the same lamination film. The prints should be thoroughly dried before lamination. Exposure to more than 40°C through a heat lamination process is not at all recommended.
Prints should be completely dried before rolling-up for transport to avoid ink smearing.
The inherent nature of the polyester calls for careful handling of the media to avoid fold and kink marks.
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.
