Self-adhesive polyethylene and high-gloss vinyl

Big Picture

Hexis USA recently announced two new media for its inkjet product line: V870PE and V209TH.

V870PE is a 6.8-mil self-adhesive polyethylene film for pigmented inks. Although uncoated, its surface has been cleaned and it has a slight grain to "trap" the ink. The film has a luster finish and is compatible with a wide range of piezo and thermal inkjet printers. It offers 2-year outdoor durability with cold lamination.

V209TH is a 2-mil high-gloss vinyl specifically designed for use with thermal- transfer printers such as the Summa DC3 and Gerber Edge. It features a solvent- based acrylic adhesive and a clear polyester liner that's resistant to rapid temperature changes. When laminated, it has an outdoor durability of up to 8 years. Roll width is 51.5 in. (Hexis USA: www.hexisusa.com)
