Polypropylene, Adhesive Backed Media
Compatible with Aqueous Printers
LexJet's TOUGHcoat™ Water Resistant Self-Adhesive Polypropylene is a 6.5-mil, adhesive-backed polypropylene film that lets you produce spectacular, brilliantly colored graphics that will last up to eight months outdoors without lamination. The TOUGHcoat™ technology makes the film exceptionally resistant to water and abrasion.
The 120° white point provides colors that pop, and the coating supports an expanded color gamut for hard-to-hit spot colors. The strong, permanent solvent-based adhesive sticks to a wide range of substrates, including rigid PVCs, foamboards, and aluminum.
Use LexJet TOUGHcoat™ Water-Resistant Self-Adhesive Polypropylene as a cost-effective alternative to adhesive-backed vinyl.
LexJet TOUGHcoat™ Water-Resistant Self-Adhesive Polypropylene is compatible 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 using the UCR (Under Color Removal) technique that replaces composite black (CMY) with the appropriate amount of black ink. Settings should be adjusted 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.|
|Optimal Printing Environment||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.|
