Roland DGA has expanded its Eco-Sol Max certified media line to include Solvent Glossy Paper with Adhesive (ESM-SGPA). Tested and profiled for the company’s eco-solvent printers and printer/cutters, the new media is designed as an alternative to vinyl for decals and mounting. It’s available for use with Roland’s VersaStudio BN-20, as well as its VersaCamm, VersaArt, and SolJet models.

The new Solvent Glossy Paper boasts an exceptional white point and gloss level, as well as the ability to produce sharp details and bold, saturated colors, the company reports. The 8-mil glossy media is multicoated for water resistance and optimum durability; its permanent water-based acrylic adhesive is backed with a silicone-treated liner for easy release and handling. Applications include for signs, P-O-P, photographic reproductions, tradeshow graphics, and more.

Available in 30- and 54-in. roll widths for VersaCamm, VersaArt, and SolJet models; a 20-in. roll width is offered for the VersaStudio BN-20.
