Agfa to Launch New Duratex Media
By Jon Robinson
Agfa Graphics states it will launch four new media products at the 2015 ISA Sign Expo being held in Las Vegas this April. This includes Duratex 15-ounce PVC Backlit Banner, which is described as a smooth, translucent backlit banner media that is printed for indoor and outdoor signage applications. It is compatible with most solvent, eco-solvent, latex and UV-curable inkjet printers.
Duratex Composite PVC/PET/PVC Blockout Film is a new media described by the company as non-curling and completely opaque for high-resolution single- or double-sided printing. It is designed for applications like display systems, retractable banner stands and scrolling displays.
The new Duratex Super White Foamboard is described by Agfa as one of the strongest and most-rigid products on the market. It is comprised of a 94 white point paper surface sandwiched with an extruded polystyrene foam core. The company states that it features strong ink adhesion and cutting performance, designed for point-of-purchase displays, retail display graphics and interior signs.
The fourth new product is called Duratex Foam PVC Board, which Agfa describes as a rigid foam PVC substrate for high-definition, wide-format inkjet printing in applications like high-end signs, POP displays and exhibition backdrops.
