Smooth, white printable surface for digital flatbeds
Owners of digital flatbed presses such as the Vutek PressVu, Inca Digital Eagle and Durst Rho 160 can create dramatic-looking display graphics with the new white/black Gatorfoam? from theUniwood/Fome-Cor division of the Nevamar Company. The display board combines a smooth white printable surface and a lightweight but warp-resistant black foam core. White/black Gatorfoam is available in thicknesses of 3/16 or 1/2 in. and in 48- x 96-in. or 60-x 120-in. sizes.
Gatorfoam can cuts cleanly with standard woodworking tools and doesn't tear, chip, or shred. Because its laminate facing and core are both moisture-resistant and warp-resistant, Gatorfoam can be used to produce graphics for outdoor use.
