3A to focus on Dispa, Lumex A and Smart-X

 At this year’s FESPA Global Print Expo, 3A Composites will focus on its sustainable printing substrates, Dispa, Lumex A and Smart-X.

 Dispa is made of 100 percent FSC-certified paper (FSC C127595), thus providing a clear indicator that the paper layers come from responsible forest management. The material’s unique structure of embossed formed paper provides the strength and rigidity that makes it the perfect choice for use in short term promotional campaigns, while the bright white and smooth surface delivers excellent printing results.

Lumex A is a premium quality amorphous polyethylene terephthalate (A-PET) sheet, which is ideally suited for flat and cold bending applications. It offers extremely good printability when used in conjunction with UV curing inks and is fire rated ‘difficult-to-ignite’ (B-s1,d0 according to EN 13501-1).

Lumex A sheets also offer a unique combination of excellent properties and occupy an unrivalled ecological position amongst fully transparent and translucent sheet materials, being 100 percent recyclable within their own waste category 1 (PET).

 Smart-X is a lightweight, all-plastic sheet material featuring surfaces of UV and weather resistant solid polystyrene (HIPS) and a core of expanded polystyrene that is completely moisture-resistant, characteristics that make it suitable for use in external applications as there will be no significant change in colour for a period of up to two years. The refined surface structure delivers excellent printing results in digital printing and it is 100 percent recyclable.

In addition, 3A will also be showing Dibond (aluminium composite panel), Forex and Foamalite (rigid PVC foam sheets), as well as Kapa (lightweight foam boards with a polyurethane foam core).

The different materials will be directly integrated in the stand construction, thus illustrating the perfect interaction between digital printing and processing.

Samples, as well as additional information for all products will be available on Stand G30, Hall A5.
