NEW HELIX SILVERBACK LINING BLOCKS LIGHT SHOW-THROUGH ON IMAGES

691

Starleaton Digital Solutions has launched two new wide format media products under the HELIX brand, HELIX Solvoprint No Light 210, which features a superior silver-backing to prevent light from showing through printed images, and HELIX Printlux No Light 215 for Aqueous printer applications.

‘Our new HELIX No Light 210 performs brilliantly using Latex, Eco-Solvent, Solvent and UV Cure processes,’ said Starleaton Director Gary Smith. ‘Roll-Up, Pop-Up, Banner and other portable displays often suffer from light show-through because non-backed media has been used, resulting in a ‘misty’ look. With HELIX Silverback technology, I think it’s fair to say we’ve got a Gorilla without the Mist!’

HELIX No Light 210 is a 210 micron polypropylene film with a matte surface that is scratch and water-resistant. For added protection and longer outdoor life, Starleaton has a range of compatible laminates available.

Also new with the Silverback lining is HELIX Printlux No Light 215 for Aqueous printer applications. Water-based pigmented inks are recommended for this product but dye inks may be used for short-term indoor displays. HELIX Printlux No Light is also polypropylene (no PVC) and is 215 microns thick.

A third new HELIX Product is translucent for the lightbox display market. This is HELIX Solvoprint CityLight 210; a polyester front-print film that looks great backlit or frontlit. It prints with Solvent, Eco-Solvent, Latex and UV Cure inks and exhibits outstanding photo-realistic quality for critical advertising work.

All three new HELIX products are available in 91cm (36”), 107cm (42”) and 152cm (60”) widths, with CityLight also available in 127cm (50”) wide rolls.
