Data Sheets, Print Settings, and Application Guidelines
Printing and Handling
- Suitable for use on Solvent, Eco-Solvent, and Latex inkjet printers. Always perform a test print first.
- Ensure that the correct profiles and heater settings are used.
- Ensure that the material has reached room temperature and relative humidity of 50% before printing.
- Do not handle the face film directly and ensure it is free from dust and static.
- Over-lamination is recommended to prevent abrasion, extend colorfastness, and also offer easier handling.
- Allow the inks to cure before over-laminating, this is usually 24-48 hours. (Not applicable to HP Latex prints)
- The matched laminate for is DAF Performance Polymeric Laminate. For all other laminates, the user should determine suitability.
- Suggested Media Setting: Use Custom Profile or select Generic Universal Self-Adhesive Vinyl. Depending on printing platform and RIP software, the suggested maximum ink load is 300%. Make sure that ink is dry when it reaches the take-up reel. An external dryer or heat lamp will accelerate drying.
