Hewlett Packard has released a new 100 percent knitted polyester fabric for its Latex wide-format printing systems.

The substrate, called HP Light Fabric, is described as being wrinkle-resistant, rub- and scratch-resistant, and soft to the touch for producing high-profile display applications.

HP explains the new Light Fabric has been tested for harmful substances and is certified according to the Oeko-Tex Standard 1001, and is REACH-compliant2, which means the material poses no health risks when used as intended. It is also fabric flame-retardant to B1, M1, and NFPA 701 standards3.

It is designed to allow printing companies to produce lightweight, high-quality banners and display for special events, retail displays and exhibits, among other applications. It is suitable for pack and ship work.

HP describes the materials as presenting an alternative to PVC for banners and displays. HP Light Fabric is available in 42-, 54-, and 60-inch widths.
