Solventbased, UV-curable and Latex Inks

SI 484

SI 484 is a PET base film with a fire resistant officially certified  B1  fire  rating.  Perfect  for  the  increasingly  demanding  requests  for  fire  rated  materials  in public locations such as airports, train stations and exhibition halls. The film  is 170 mic thick, has a satin  surface  and  is  suitable  for  eco  solvent,  solvent,  UV  and  latex  inks.  Its  grey  back  offers  good light blocking features and is ideal for roll up applications.

Handling

  • Note for Latex-Inks: To avoid the effect of rewetting (oil film on the print surface due to defective anchorage of ink) it is necessary to establish the optimal drying parameter. This can be done by means of print tests before production print. Rewetting can appear several days after printing when the drying condtions are defective. The rewetting can also be dependent on the given ambient conditions and the composition and consistence of the printing theme. When creating a media profile, this circumstance must be expressly taken into consideration.
  • Note for temperature setting: Before printing you must check that the correct drying temperature has been set by carrying out a trial print. Too high drying temperatures can lead to a deformation of the film which can later cause further problems while processing.
  • Note for Drying time / Processing: The VOC which are contained in solvent and latex inks must be fully dried before further processing. For this reason it is necessary to take long enough drying times into account. The drying time of the printed media depends very much on the quantity of solvent applied. When printing the film in a roll-to-roll process, the printed strip must be unrolled and laid flat as soon as possible until final drying. Solvent residues due to insufficient drying times can lead to blocking during transport in rolled-up form. During lamination such residues can negatively impact the quality of the finished product (flatness, shrinkage behaviour, anchorage, etc...).
  • It is necessary to protect the surface if it is subject over a long time to abrasion or any other mechanical influences, to dirt or humidity. The lamination can be done right to the edges or over the edges. The user should check before using what is more appropriate.
  • We recommend to use self-adhesive laminating foils for cold lamination or appropriate liquid lamination products.

Storage

  • Shelf life: 1 year after delivery
  • After printing the remaining roll must be removed from the plotter and stored in its closed original packing in a cool and dry environment.
