Spandex has announced further additions to its ImagePerfect range of materials with two new white gloss polymeric vinyl media.
Both the IP 2503 Plus and the IP 2503PA Plus (PerfectApply) deliver increased benefits to sign makers and digital printers in terms of printable output quality, durability and cost-effectiveness. Expanding the range of opportunities across indoor and outdoor signage applications, the two new ImagePerfect materials have been engineered for digital printing on large-format inkjets and are compatible with all eco-solvent, solvent and UV-cured inks.
"Our new IP 2503 Plus products represent a genuine milestone in printable polymerics," said Roland Keller, executive product director, Spandex. "The creation of advanced new print profiles assures users dramatically increased improvements in density and ink-limit on the new materials, the result of which is never-before-seen levels of color gamut that will astound customers."
Spandex's new 70µ white gloss IP 2503 Plus incorporates a permanent solvent-based adhesive and delivers a quantum leap in terms of the output quality achieved by ImagePerfect printable polymeric vinyls. This enables users to create a plethora of stunning and vibrant indoor and outdoor projects that include markings and decorations, and vehicle graphics.
IP 2503 Plus also features specific polymeric, non-migrating plasticizers and UV stabilizers, which ensure long-term outdoor durability in temperature ranges from -30°C to +90°C. In addition, the product benefits from an aesthetic face-lift via the incorporation of a super-white liner, which offers the added benefit of ensuring increased layflat. The product is also available with an IP 2810-101, IP 2810-200 or ImagePerfect water-based liquid laminate offering UV protection.
Spandex's IP 2503PA Plus polymeric vinyl delivers all the benefits of the IP 2503 Plus variant, while also offering the recently introduced PerfectApply bubble-free technology to facilitate application. Thanks to the inclusion of an innovative air-egress adhesive system that utilizes embossing patterns on the release liner, users achieve an ultra-smooth print surface that eradicates bubbles and wrinkles during vinyl applications. The result is vibrant, high-quality printed graphics at any viewing distance. IP 2503PA Plus also incorporates a state-of-the-art film and liner combination that affords much greater levels of printed output than is the case with the original IP 2503PA product.
The ImagePerfect range of Signage and Digital materials is distributed in Europe exclusively by Spandex.
