LexJet has introduced two new Premium Solvent Backlit Films that can be used to print brilliant backlit POP displays, trade-show graphics, and promotional signage on wide-format inkjet printers that use mild solvent or solvent inks, including the Epson Stylus Pro GS6000 and popular printers from HP, Mimaki, Mutoh, and Roland. The films are also compatible with UV-curable inks.
LexJet Premium Solvent Backlit Matte and LexJet Premium Solvent Backlit Gloss are sturdy, rigid polyester films designed not to warp, even after sustained exposure to the heat produced by the lights used to illuminate the graphics. The ink-receptive coatings on these films produce the maximum color densities needed to reproduce high-quality, high-contrast images. The light-diffusing back coat ensures the uniformly strong transmission of light needed for uncommonly vibrant and eye-catching displays.
Both of these backlit films are so scratch-resistant and water-resistant that they can be used for either indoor or outdoor graphics without lamination.
LexJet Premium Solvent Backlit Matte is a sturdy, 9-mil polyester film with a glare-inhibiting matte finish. It is available in 36-, 54-, and 60-inch roll widths. Images can be reverse printed on the second surface of this film and viewed through the front surface of the film. This enables the face of the film to provide an extra layer of protection to the printed graphics.
LexJet Premium Solvent Backlit-Gloss is an 8-mil polyester film with a glossy coating that ensures the graphics will remain legible and visually appealing even when front lit during the day. This film is available in 36-, 42-, 50-, 54-, and 60-inch roll widths.
"Our customers have told us how important it is to be able to print backlit graphics that are not only brilliant and beautiful, but also able to withstand a wide range of display conditions," said Dione Metnick, product manager, LexJet. "LexJet's new Premium Solvent Backlit Films are durable, versatile, and produce noticeably superior image quality with solvent and UV-curable inks."
Both films are currently shipping from LexJet's nationwide network of distribution centers.
