Zurich, Switzerland – 21 September 2016 – Spandex, the one-stop supplier of innovative solutions to the sign, architectural and display industries, announces today that it is once again adding to its ImagePerfect range with the introduction of two new products –Multi-Purpose Fleece and Lotus Guard laminate.
ImagePerfect 2830-108 Lotus Guard
ImagePerfect 2830-108 Lotus Guard is the latest addition to Spandex’s range of digital laminates. A highly-transparent gloss laminate, Lotus Guard incorporates
state-of-the-art coating technology. Its water-repellent features give it a lotus effect, with water running cleanly from the surface without leaving streaks or marks. Due to its low surface energy, Lotus Guard offers self-cleaning properties, meaning dirt and other debris will not stick to the surface, making it perfect for outdoor applications with durability of up to eight years.
It is suitable for installations including outdoor signage in retail locations, offices, educational establishments, bars, restaurants, casinos and many more. It can also be used in more specialised applications such as blades on wind turbines, petrol pump signage and vehicles, including lorries, trailers and trains.
Steve Jacques, Category Manager, Spandex UK comments: “Ordinarily in the case of outdoor signage, cleaning is a significant post-installation cost and, with the new ImagePerfect Lotus Guard’s coating technology and low surface energy, it will be a big time saver for customers, and over time, will help them save money. With its easy maintenance and cleaning properties it could also help customers win new business in more niche applications.”
ImagePerfect 2421 Multi-Purpose Fleece
ImagePerfect 2421 Multi-Purpose Fleece is a synthetic, non-woven premium matt white material, which can be used for digital printing on large format printers across all printer platforms (solvent, eco-solvent, UV and latex).
ImagePerfect 2421 has excellent hang flat properties and is crease and scratch resistant. It is lightweight and easy to install without needing heavy, robust and expensive suspension systems. However, despite being lightweight, it has a high level of tensile strength and high level of tear resistance.
It can be used in a wide variety of indoor and short-term outdoor applications, including displays, roll-ups, posters, billboards, POS and wallcoverings, in environments including trade shows and exhibitions, construction sites and retail locations. ImagePerfect 2421 is also ISO14001 certified, which underlines its environmental and ecological qualities.
Mr Jacques continues: “This is another very exciting new product for Spandex. Fleece banners are growing in popularity and significance due to the recyclable properties, so the introduction of this new product will really broaden options and applications for our customers.”
Both these products will be available from the beginning of September 2016. For more information on ImagePerfect 2830-108 Lotus Guard and ImagePerfect 2421 Multi-Purpose Fleece visit www.spandex.com or contact 0800 77 26 33.
