Sihl has announced the addition of Sihl 3198 Instant Dry Solvent Block-Out Film, a white polyester film with a 100 percent opaque grey light block layer, top-coated specifically for compatibility with solvent inkjet printers.
This new product is consists of a 7 mil white polyester film with a proprietary glossy instant dry coating that is compatible with eco/mild, mid, and true solvent inkjet inks.
The base film combines a white top layer fused to a grey block-out layer during the polyester base manufacturing process so the film will not split, buckle, or warp providing for a durable, dimensionally stable final product. The block-out layer eliminates image wash out caused by unfavorable lighting conditions. Applications include roll-up displays, photo-reproductions and high-end POS signage. Sihl 3198 has a proprietary solvent inkjet receptive coating which produces high definition glossy photorealistic images previously unavailable for solvent inkjet printers.
Sihl will be demonstrating 3198 Instant Dry Solvent Block-Out Film at the SGIA tradeshow October 7-9, 2009 in New Orleans. Stop by the Sihl Booth # 1563 for more information on this and other new products.
