Durability of Media
The durability of the printed image is dependent on the life expectancy 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 or friction, it is strongly recommended that a UV stabilised overprint is used to lacquer the prints.
The media, when printed and protected as indicated above (with lacquer), can have an image life expectancy of 18 to 20 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. For further assistance, please consult our HelpDesk.
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 protected by a clear UV stabilised lacquer. The lacquer must be checked for compatibility with the media. The lacquer can have tendency to turn yellow when exposed to light, thereby interfering with the image quality. The prints must be throughly dried before lacquering. The lacquering must be done in an absolutely dust-free environment and it must be allowed to dry completely before transporting, to avoid dust pickup. Please refer to the supplier of lacquer for more details.
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.
