Brand: LexJet

LexJet 11 Mil Valeron® Banner material is one of the strongest banner materials available for aqueous inkjet printers. It is more durable than scrim banner material and won’t tear, split, or deteriorate under adverse conditions. The smooth, matte surface is great for readability.

Because its polyethylene base has a high level of resistance to punctures, water, and tears, LexJet 11 Mil Valeron® Banner is a smart choice for banners that will be hung in high-traffic areas or where high winds or other hostile environmental conditions may be a factor.

LexJet 11 Mil Valeron® Banner works with all aqueous inkjet printers, whether they use dye or pigment inks or thermal or piezo printheads. It is water-resistant with dye inks, and waterproof with pigment inks.

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 300% is recommended.
Temperature Resistance -5 to 70° C or -23 to 158° F
Optimal Print Environment 60-80° F, 50% R.H.
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.
Handling Recommendations Due to the absorptive nature of the coating, you should avoid touching the coated surface of the paper. 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.
Gloss Level @ 60° 5
Water Resistance & Surface Protection To 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 a good color gamut, but bleeding may occur when the images gets wet. Overlaminating 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.
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 Banner Tape.
Finishing/Post Process Always use pressure-sensitive laminates (LexJet's Elite UV vinyl is recommended). Hand applying the laminate is not recommended. Before applying the laminate, allow the image to dry for at least 2 hours. A 24 hour dry time is ideal.
Ideal Storage Conditions 70° F (21° C), 50% R.H. A controlled environment is recommended). Store vertically in original packaging.
Shelf Life Greater than 1 year from the LexJet purchase date when stored in proper conditions.
