ILFORD, a leading developer and manufacturer of professional quality media for inkjet printing, graphic arts and color photographic processes will be in attendance at the 2012 SGIA Expo at the Las Vegas Convention Center, October 18-20, in booth 4619. While at the show, ILFORD will reveal two new product offerings for the sign and display market within its OMNIJET range.
ILFORD OMNIJET Trans
ILFORD continues to expand its line of professional quality display solutions with the introduction of ILFORD OMNIJET Trans, an inkjet alternative to traditional backlit silver halide products. The new product has been developed for use with all wide-format aqueous printers including the popular wide-format Epson Stylus Pro 11880.
Competitively priced against traditional silver halide products, ILFORD OMNIJET Trans also leaves a smaller environmental footprint by eliminating wet chemical processing. Without the need of a darkroom, the inkjet product allows for a more efficient and cost-effective workflow.
ILFORD OMNIJET Trans produces impeccable image quality even in dense black areas and skin tones and is perfectly adapted for use in the latest generation of backlit display devices. Booth visitors can pre-order ILFORD OMNIJET Trans during SGIA, and the new offering will be available in early 2013.
ILFORD OMNIJET NanoSolvent
With ILFORD OMNIJET NanoSolvent, ILFORD has leveraged its expertise in coating technologies to create a unique new layer offering increased productivity with solvent and eco-solvent printing. The OMNIJET NanoSolvent layer meets the highest demands for image quality and offers a very fast printing and drying speed, enabling print service providers to laminate quickly and avoid ink transfer when the material is rolled up.
The new ILFORD OMNIJET NanoSolvent layer will be coated onto a variety of PVC-free substrates including clear and translucent film and pop-up display, self-adhesive and banner printing materials. ILFORD OMNIJET NanoSolvent versions of the FSC (C107238)-certified and PEFC-certified OMNIJET photo papers will also be available. ILFORD OMNIJET NanoSolvent products will be rolled out during the first half of 2013.
“Throughout our history of activity in the commercial wide-format printing market, we have continually been a driving force in the industry’s advancement,” says Tim Maher, President of ILFORD America. “With these latest introductions, ILFORD is continuing to push the technological boundaries of our industry by developing solutions for sign and display printing that offer increased productivity and, in many cases, a reduced environmental footprint.”
Alongside product demonstrations at SGIA, ILFORD will be on hand to discuss the brand’s on-going efforts to answer market demand for sustainable printing. With all photo paper products within its OMNIJET range now carrying FSC (C107238) or PEFC certification, ILFORD continues to make strides in becoming a leading international provider of high quality, environmentally responsible substrates for the graphic arts.
