Going up the wall
In tandem with the increasing opportunities offered by the Décor sector, Spandex now offers three printable wallpapers, Canvas, Sandblast and Jacquard, all of which offer equal technical performance, but have different surface embosses to provide a choice of aesthetic. All are compatible for use with solvent, eco-solvent, UV and latex inks.
Designed to resist scratches even when wet, the wallpapers are ideal for use in even the most demanding spaces and are also fire-rated to the new Euro class standard EN13501-1.
While shrinkage is often a consideration with printable wallpapers, the ImagePerfect offerings feature high integral stability and drops can be applied side-by-side without overlap, with no shrinkage occurring during their application life.
Supplied in 50m long roll lengths and at the unconventional width of 106.7cm wide, which enables two drops to be printed side-by-side on a single roll of media, ImagePerfect wallpapers also help to improve productivity and minimise waste.
Liverpool-based Benson Signs has successfully used ImagePerfect wallpaper for a number of its clients across the UK, especially in projects where the quality of the product is critical to the application and report that its clients have been consistently delighted with the results.
Product innovation in textile substrates for wall décor is also adding choice and performance for customers and together with a full range of textiles for roll-up or hanging display applications, Spandex now offers IP 2317, a smooth, decorative self-adhesive textile for indoor and short-term outdoor applications that can be digitally printed using eco solvent and solvent inks as well as latex and UV-cured inks.
Suitable for application on panels for trade shows, showrooms, theatres and offices, it has a top coating that provides optimum printability, delivering good text definition and vivid colour in-fills. It also works well as a short-term wall covering for lifestyle and event locations, or for projects that use wall-space for promotional or mood enhancing purposes. Users can chose from either
permanent or removable adhesive options to suit the demands of specific applications. The removable option can be cleanly peeled away for up to a year after application and leaves no adhesive residue when used on flat, smooth surfaces.
