Brand: LexJet

LexJet Light Block Polyester (7 Mil) is a lightweight, matte-finished, tear-resistant polyester film that can be used to produce rollable trade-show, POP, or retail graphics, including those that will be displayed in banner stands. The matte-finished coating on the bright-white surface is designed to produce brilliantly colored, sharply defined images while minimizing glare.

The 100% opaque, light-blocking gray layer ensures that ambient light shining from behind the film won’t diminish the beauty or readability of the graphics. With a thickness of 7 mil, LexJet Light Block Polyester film is thin enough for use in a roll-up display, but sufficiently rigid and curl-resistant to stay flat when unrolled for display. The film is also water- and scratch-resistant, so no lamination is required. Just print, trim, and ship.

LexJet Light Block Polyester (7 Mil) is designed for use with solvent and low-solvent inks.

Software Settings Printer settings will vary between printer manufacturers. Recommended heater settings for pre-heat and post-heat of 40-50° C have been found as a good place to start. 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. To optimize print quality, 720 dpi will offer best results.
Life Expectancy Outdoor- 12 Months; Indoor- 36 Months
Finishing/Post Processing This film does not require lamination. However, using a pressure-sensitive laminate in the LexJet Elite laminate line can be applied to increase the life expectancy and abrasion resistance of the image. Before applying the laminate, allow the ink to dry for a minimum of 24 hours to ensure the solvents are gone from the print. Failure to do so may facilitate solvent penetration which may cause color shift and affect the bond strength of the laminate adhesive.
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. Image longevity will be influenced by lighting source & temperature. Lamination is recommended when an image will be exposed to repeated moisture or physical handling or when prolonged product life (+1 year) is needed.
Optimal Print Environment 50-86° F (10-30° C), 70% R.H
Shipping Instructions Always roll graphics with the thinnest material facing out. When both materials are the same thickness, always roll them in the same way every time. LexJet recommends rolling the graphic with a minimum 12 inch diameter.
Ideal Storage Conditions 70° F (21° C), 50% R.H. (a controlled environment is recommended); store vertically in original packaging.
Shelf Life 1 year from the LexJet ship date when stored in proper conditions.
