Adhesive Backed, Polypropylene Media
Compatible with Aqueous Printers
LexJet PolyGloss PSA is one of the few glossy polypropylene films that can be used either to produce high-impact, long-term indoor graphics or short-term outdoor signage. The glossy surface is great for reproducing brightly colored, detailed images.
The specially designed pressure-sensitive, solvent adhesive on the back of LexJet PolyGloss PSA makes printed graphics easy to install. The adhesive removes cleanly for up to 90 days, but becomes permanent after 90 days.
The micorporous, instant-dry coating on LexJet PolyGloss PSA makes this film a good choice for shops that need to produce higher volumes of graphics on a multiple makes and models of aqueous inkjet printers.
The film is compatible with dye and pigment inks on aqueous inkjet printers that use thermal or piezo printheads. Prints produced with pigment inks are water-resistant.

|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, utilize the UCR (Under Color Removal) technique that replaces composite black (CMY) with the appropriate amount of black ink. To optimize print quality, printers should be set for the highest print quality and media selection should be "heavy coated". Ink coverage up to 350% 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.|
|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. Allow at least 2 hours of cure time prior to trimming.|
