DuPont Electronics & Imaging showcase innovations at SignExpo 2019
DuPont Advanced Printing and DuPont Advanced Materials together presented their newest innovations during SignExpo. Visitors to the booth learned more about a new clear DuPont Tedlar film for indoor and outdoor signage applications, and digital textile inks for roll-to-roll (RTR) applications including banners and signage made from DuPont Artistri inks. At the show, DuPont Advanced Materials showcased its new formulation of clear DuPont Tedlar. Continuing its commitment to innovation, this film raises the bar for durability. Visitors to the booth saw how it can help customers save time and money on cleaning, maintenance and replacements in addition to providing a long-lasting canvas for brands.
‘This new film is designed for indoor/outdoor signage durability with extreme UV protection and cleanability to remove common graffiti, stickers and other debris. Even the harshest chemical cleaners won’t damage the film,’ said Chris Marino, Global Marketing Leader for DuPont Advanced Materials. DuPont Advanced Printing showcased Artistri Xite digital inks, which are easily printed onto surfaces including nylon, polyester and vinyl, making them the perfect choice for printing signs, banners and flags. These inks deliver excellent colour saturation as well as UV and water resistance for outdoor applications. ‘From dye sub, direct disperse and pigment, to acid and reactive inks, DuPont Artistri digital inks provide rich, bright colours across many substrates within the sign industry. Because DuPont proprietary dispersions, polymers and ink formulations span a range of viscosities, they allow Artistri inks to work with almost any wide-format digital printer,’ said Jeff Hansen, Regional Marketing Manager, Americas – DuPont Advanced Printing.
On April 25, Eric Beyeler, Global Marketing Leader – digital inks, shared the benefits of printing with water-based ink jet inks for signage applications during his presentation: ‘Low Environmental Footprint and Simplified Workflow in Fabric Printing’.
