Brand: LexJet

LexJet's TOUGHcoat™ Water Resistant Polypropylene is an 8-mil polypropylene film that provides the brilliant color reproduction and exceptional durability needed to produce short-term banners and outdoor posters. The TOUGHcoat™ technology makes the film easy to handle and exceptionally resistant to water and abrasion.

The 125° white point provides colors that pop, and the coating supports high ink saturation for the expanded color gamut needed for hard-to-hit spot colors.

LexJet TOUGHcoat™ Water Resistant Polypropylene works with dye and pigment aqueous inks on thermal and piezo inkjet printers.

Software Settings For the best and most consistent results, a profile should be created using an external color calibrator in conjunction with your RIP and color matching software. However, if these tools are not available printers should be set for the highest print quality and media selection should be "heavy coated". Ink coverage up to 250% is recommended.
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. Please consult with your ink manufacturer for light fastness data.
Grommeting Grommets 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.
Tape & Stitched Hem Banner tape can be used and is preferred to sewing. If sewing, a double-stitched hem is recommended with a maximum of five stitches per inch. Banner tapes at least 4-mils thick perform the best. For more information see LexJet's Heavy Duty Banner Tape.
Finishing/Post Processing Pressure sensitive vinyl laminates like LexJet's 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.
Optimal Service Environment For printing: 60° -80° F, 50% Relative Humidity.
Handling Recommendations Due 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.
