Compatible with Aqueous Printers
LexJet 6.5 Mil Display Film is a bright-white, high-gloss DuPont Melinex® polyester film with a production-friendly instant-dry coating and a light-blocking layer. This blockout layer keeps the support structure of pop-up and retractable banner stands from showing through when the graphics are displayed.
Images printed on this film look so vibrant and detailed that some professional photographers use this material to make competition prints that resemble Cibachromes.
LexJet 6.5 Mil Gloss Display Film works with either thermal or pressure-sensitive laminating films, but lamination isn’t required if the graphics are for short-term use. An extra-white graphics surface can be achieved when a PreLume® laminating film is applied.
The film is compatible with dye and pigment inks on printers that use thermal or piezo printheads.

|Software Settings||The coating on this product is engineered for better than 400% ink coverage. The white film setting in most RIPs is appropriate. However, we recommend a custom ICC profile for optimal results. Please refer to www.lexjet.com for starting-point ICC profiles for some printers.|
|Light Fastness||The fading time of inkjet ink is a direct result of the inks that you choose to use and the environment where the print is displayed. Contact the ink manufacturer for light fastness data.|
|Finishing/Post Processing||It is always recommended that a protective laminate be applied after printing. Always use pressure sensitive laminates (LexJet Elite UV, Elite Coex, or Elite Polycarbonate laminates are suggested). Hand applying laminates is not recommended. The print should dry for 24 hours before laminating. When mounting to substrates such as PVC, Acrylic, etc., a standard mounting adhesive is appropriate.|
