Backlit, Semi-Rigid Polyester
ImagePerfect™ 2605 is a semi-rigid translucent signface product for backlit promotional signage and fascias, on which there is a requirement for high-quality printability.
It is ideally suited for indoor backlit signs such as illuminated sign boxes in railway and bus stations and a wide range of point of sale applications.
IP 2605 has been specifically designed for solvent-based inkjet printing and is suitable for printing with eco solvent and solvent inks as well as UV-cured and latex inks. It consists of a special coated polyester film. The specific design of this product guarantees an even light distribution and translucence for optimum impact, day and night.
Whilst IP 2605 offers the highest quality and printability, less experienced users may find IP 2607 easier to work with, this product also offers the option to print at higher speeds that would be possible with IP 2605.
Important laminate recommendations:
As a direct result of the internal temperature changes when lightboxes are powered on and off (in use and ‘idle’), humidity levels can rise inside the lightbox. This humidity can condense into moisture, in turn, this can cause the backlit film itself to stick to the polycarbonte/glass sheets that are used as part of the lightbox construction and this can have the effect of ‘melting’ the print. To avoid the backlit film from sticking to polycarbonte/glass sheets, therefore, we would recommend that it should be overlaminated with IP 2810-101, IP 2810-200, IP 2820-100, IP 2820-200 or IP 2830-202 (depending on the specifics of the overlaminating requirement). The effect of this can, of course, also be replicated via the use of prints that have not been allowed to dry completely and this should, therefore, be avoided. In this respect, it is also important to ensure that the correct print profile is used to ensure that the ink load is relevant to the product and does not create drying issues or damage to the product’s top-coating.
