LexJet Features Proflex UVR with Prelume

Bright-white media for use with UV-curable inks

Big Picture

Specifically designed for production of trade-show graphic panels with a UV-curable wide-format printer, LexJet's new PROflex UVR with Prelume coating technology provides a bright-white media and excellent adhesion with UV-curable inks. Available in 7-, 15-, and 25-mil thicknesses, Proflex UVR is a dimensionally stable, nonglare, scratch-resistant, textured film that features LexJet's Crosslink Surface Chemistry treatment and Prelume's whitening technology.

The 7-mil Proflex can be used in retractable banner stands; the 15-mil substrate can be used for trade-show pop-up booth graphics' curved ends, and can be applied using magnetic strips; and the 25- mil media is designed for use as tradeshow graphics secured with magnets.

Proflex has been tested with the Vutek PressVu 200/600 printer with OEM inks; other printers are being evaluated. It is available in 36-, 54-, and 62-in. rolls.

The Prelume coating technology made its debut in 2003, and visually enhances digital color output, reports LexJet. Its chemical additives whiten and brighten digital color images without affecting colors or introducing organic chemical whiteners that can cause inkjet prints to yellow with age, says the company.
