Bantex Offers an Insider’s View of Digital Inkjet Printing Materials
When it comes to materials for digital inkjet printing of vinyl banners and signs, not all are created equal. Selecting the best digital printing materials can make all the difference between a repeat customer and one that returns the banner or sign and asks for a refund.
Bantex Digital Media (Booth 1892) is an industry leader that has set the bar high for image and color clarity, durability and curl-free performance. Bantex products span the full range of vinyl banner and sign applications, from retractable banners to durable outdoor applications. Experts at Bantex offered an insider’s view on digital inkjet printing materials.
Flexible Composite Textiles
Materials for digital inkjet printing are often based on the lamination of vinyl. Some of these products are joined by applying heat, while others apply heat and adhesive along with an open-weave reinforcing material between the layers, such as Bantex Digital Media. The use of adhesive and intermediate materials assures a stiffer, more durable product that lasts longer but also runs smoothly, resulting in higher levels of productivity with reduced waste.
Images are, of course, printed on the surface of digital inkjet materials, which makes the technology behind these surfaces essential to color impact and image clarity. Bantex Digital Media takes the extra step of micro-texturing the surface of all Bantex products, which means the surfaces are highly receptive to ink, resulting in brighter, truer colors and sharper images.
Digital inkjet printers come with a variety of ink types, including solvent, eco-solvent, UV curable and latex. It’s essential for sign and graphic shops to be assured that the printing materials they use are compatible with the ink types in their printers, and that these printers are set with the proper printing profiles. Bantex Digital Media is compatible with all of the leading ink technologies and certified for HP latex printers.
