  • TOUGHcoat provides additional resistance against scratching and weather
  • Economical option for higher-volume jobs that require great image quality
  • 16-mil scrim banner material for cost-effective, water-resistant graphics

LexJet TOUGHcoat™ ThriftyBanner is a 16-mil scrim-reinforced vinyl with a white point that enables bright, colorful photos to be printed on a durable, weather-resistant surface. It provides an economical option for printing higher runs of photo-intensive banners that will be exposed to the weather.

The super smooth, bright-white surface and superior ink-saturation properties of this 16-mil material provide deep rich colors and the expanded gamut needed to produce great-looking photos or graphics with hard-to-hit spot colors. The TOUGHcoat™ formulation provides a high level of resistance to water and scratching.

LexJet TOUGHcoat™ ThriftyBanner is compatible with all aqueous inkjet printers, whether they use dye or pigment inks or thermal or piezo printheads.

Specifications are provided by the manufacturer. Refer to the manufacturer for an explanation of the print speed and other ratings.

Imaging SideMaterial is packaged with printable side facing up. Printable surface can be identified by a slight tackiness.
Software SettingsThe coating on this product is engineered for better than 250% ink coverage. A Heavy Weight Coated setting is the recommended starting point. However, we recommend a custom ICC profile for optimal results. Please refer to www.lexjet.com for starting-point ICC profiles for some printers.
Finishing/Post Processing Pressure-sensitive vinyl laminates, like LexJet Elite UV Vinyl, can be applied to increase the fade and abrasion resistance of the image. Before applying the laminate, allow the image to dry for 24 hours.
Light FastnessThe 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.
Water Resistance and Surface ProtectionTo obtain a high degree of water resistance, use only pigmented ink. Allow the print to dry for 24 hours before exposing to moisture. Lamination is not required. Ink saturation over 250% can affect the waterfast properties and show ink bleed. Dye-based inks will yield good color gamut, but bleeding may occur when the image gets wet. Over laminating dye-based ink will not eliminate image bleed, unless the material is completely sealed to a non-porous surface. To avoid perforating the laminate, use banner tape instead of sewing (see below). Dirt and stains cannot be cleaned from the imaged surface and the surface can be damaged from excessive folding or creasing.
HemmingBanner tape can be used and is preferred to sewing because the sewing process can scratch the coating. If sewing, a double-stitched hem is recommended with a maximum of five stitches per inch.
GrommetingGrommets should be placed in the hemline along the length of the banner so that the grommet is through two layers. Corner grommets should be placed where the length and width hems cross, so that the grommet is through four layers. A reinforced corner is also recommended to increase durability.
Optimal Print Environment70° F (21° C), 50% R.H
Handling RecommendationsDue to the absorptive nature of the coating, you should avoid touching the coated surface. It's always recommended that cotton gloves be used when handling inkjet coated materials. Rolls of LexJet film are supplied with the coated side facing out.
