NovaJetTM PhotoMatte PVC 80 SA
For water based (pigment) inkjet printing of promotional displays
Product Description & Application
NovaJet PhotoMatte PVC 80 SA (VMP 7513) is a self-adhesive PVC based media, coated with a matte finish ink-receptive layer for inkjet printing. It is suitable for indoor front-lit applications in exhibitions and medium-term promotions. The ability to print with pigment inks renders it useful for window displays where sunlight is likely to fall on the print.
Features & Benefits
Superior whiteness for enhanced wide colour gamut and deep rich colours
High opacity for limited show-through
High image definition and line clarity for better resolution and sharpness of images
Self-adhesive characteristic saves time while pasting on mounting boards
Special paper liner helps in easy release while pasting

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
Pre-test the compatibility of the inks with the media for design application, before commencing actual production.
We do not recommend using NovaJet self-adhesive media with Poly Carbonate sheets as these sheets have tendency of releasing gases resulting in damage to the prints.
We recommend testing of the media for tiling application before doing the actual job.
To achieve the best possible print quality, please make sure that the correct ICC profiling, colour calibration are used. For further assistance, please contact our HelpDesk.
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.
Printed media should be thoroughly dried before rolling-up for transport to avoid smearing.
A fresh pair of cotton gloves should be used while handling the bare media to avoid transfer of sweat, grease and oil on to the media as it could interfere with the print quality.
Before mounting the prints on to PVC Foam Board or Acrylic sheets, it is recommended to conduct compatibility tests with the substrates in normal use conditions. Substrates must be moisture-free before mounting.
If a laminating machine is used for mounting, please ensure that the board is well supported and remains completely flat as it comes out of the machine. Also, while pasting manually, make sure that the board is kept on a perfectly flat table. Keep the board as flat as possible during transportation as this will prevent formation of tunnels or humps after mounting.
Ensure that the mounting boards are stored horizontally, prior to use. These boards have a tendency to deform when stored vertically, thereby leading to the formation of bubbles during or after mounting.
For more details, please refer to the supplier’s instructions concerning the conditioning of the substrate before use.
Be careful to avoid re-absorption of moisture from the air, during and after mounting.
Wet method to mount prints may cause water/moisture residuals and it will impact the adhesive property. We recommend dry pasting which does not leave any scope for water to remain trapped between the print & mounting surface.
When not in use, the media should be stored in its original packing.
