Compatibility
This media is compatible with original inks of most eco-solvent, solvent, UV & latex printers. Please consult the ink/printer manufacturer for technical advice if required.
Pre-test the compatibility of the inks with the media before commencing actual production.
To achieve the best possible print quality, please make sure that the correct ICC profiles and heater settings are used. For further assistance, please contact our HelpDesk.
Durability of Media
The durability of the printed image is dependent on the fading characteristics of the inks used.
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 while mounting on surface or cleaning after mounting, it is strongly recommended that a UV stabilised overprint is used to lacquer the prints.
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.
Lacquering of the printed media with a clear UV stabilised lacquer is recommended for protection. Pre-test the compatibility of the lamination film with the printed media prior to use. Please allow adequate drying time of the print before lacquering. This media, when printed and protected as indicated above (with lacquer), can have an image life expectancy of 18 to 20 months.
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.
