Fujifilm North America Corporation is continuing to put its customers 'in control' with a polypropylene wall graphic film that is part of a full selection of Fujifilm wide-format UV and solvent roll media from the Graphic Systems Division's print solutions portfolio. Ideal for the production of retail graphics, the PVC-free media provides printers with a recyclable backdrop that meets print buyers increasing demands for solutions that are less harmful to the environment.
Fujifilm's polypropylene wall graphic film is proven to outperform PVC-based wall graphics because it doesn't shrink, and offers easy installation and repositioning, using only a mild adhesive to eliminate surface damage when removed. The media was developed to provide optimal whiteness for excellent color and print quality, a characteristic of all the products in Fujifilm's family of wide-format media, and includes a heavier liner for improved handling during printing.
"PVC film inherently shrinks and, to overcome this issue, large amounts of aggressive adhesives are required," said Terry Amerine, segment manager, Graphic Systems Division, Fujifilm North America Corporation. "This makes installation very difficult and can result in damage to the underlying walls. By using polypropylene, shrinkage is no longer a concern and printers can offer their customers a recyclable solution eliminating the problems long associated with removable wall graphic films. As a result, we have seen a tremendous market response to this product."
All of Fujifilm's wide-format media undergoes a series of rigorous tests to guarantee optimum performance on print quality, color development, maximum durability and ease-of-use. The media must demonstrate that it is easy to handle, and that it can stand up to the elements, resisting cracking and yellowing.
"Offering our customers wide format media that has met Fujifilm's strict standards of excellence as part of our total solutions package is just one more way we are putting them 'in control'," said Amerine. "We work diligently to insure that all of our digital components work together and provide proven robust solutions that make our customers more successful."
