For solvent wide-format printers

Big Picture
Sihl USA has introduced a new line of media designed just for solvent wide-format printers. The Solvit line features paper, backlit films, canvas, Tyvek, and polypropylene media.

TriSolv Premium Paper is a heavy poster-weight paper with a glossy finish for making photo prints. It's 200 gsm and Sihl claims it offers excellent sharpness and brilliant color saturation. It is available in 36-, 54-, and 63-in. rolls.

TriSolv Standard Paper Blue Back is a highly opaque, blue-back paper with lightblock on the back side to reduce shinethrough. It's 120 gsm and designed for use as billboards, outdoor posters, and kiosks. It is available in 36- and 63-in. rolls.

TriSolv Standard Paper White Back is a mid-range weight (135 gsm) paper with a satin finish. It is designed for high-volume jobs such as posters, P-O-S graphics, billboards, and kiosks. And it is available in grand-format sizes"?36-, 54-, and 78- in. wide rolls.

Optilux Backlit Film is a 6-mil, singleside polyester film with a translucent inkjet-receptive coating. Optilux Window Film Easy Tack is the same as Backlit Film, but with a repositionable adhesive, for application onto any glass surface. It is available in 36- or 50-in. rolls.

Picasso Canvas is a 340-gsm, 16.5- mil cotton/poly blend canvas with a coating on one side. It can be stretched and framed without cracking. It has a waterfast satin finish, which eliminates the need for lamination. It is available in 36 and 54-in. rolls.

Tyvek Banner is a tear-resistant polyolefin that is lightweight (130 gsm, 10 mil) but strong. The indoor/outdoor matte-finish media can be grommetted, taped, or pocketed. It is available in 36- or 50-in. rolls.

Syntisol PP-Film is a semi-gloss, tearresistant polypropylene film. It is designed to produce a photorealistic print quality with a paper-like touch, while being used as indoor or outdoor displays, signage, and P-O-P graphics. (Sihl: www.sihlusa.com)
