July 28, 2008, Elkridge, Maryland -- Neschen brand is introducing a new and improved PVC coated media for billboards, back-drops, awnings, banners, trade show exhibits, and double-sided graphics applications. New SolvoTex PVC Standard Blockout is a 100% polyester media with a PVC coating on both sides and a true 100% opaque block-out liner to allow double-sided printing with no shadows, wash-out or bleed-through. SolovTex PVC Standard Blockout is certified fire resistant per NFPA 701 2004 Test #2 for use in indoor public display applications.
And it is fungus and UV resistant for use outdoors in bright sunlight and humid environments. It can be printed with solvent, eco-solvent and UV curable inks. According to Neschen, this new "Standard" designated, PVC coated, opaque media replaces the brandís SolvoTex PVC Premium Blockout, offering users many performance enhancements.
First, the new PVC coating offers greater consistency for improved print performance. Second, SolvoTex Standard PVC Blockout drapes smoothly, without waves, in both free-hanging and tensioned applications.
Finally, at 15.2 oz./sq. yd. it is lighter than the previous material (22 oz./ sq. yd.) for improved ease of handling and reduced shipping costs. New SolvoTex PVC Standard Blockout is available in roll sizes from 20 in. x 10 ft. to 189 in. x 164 ft. Customers can obtain a printed sample swatch, or a sample roll to try the new media by contacting Neschen Americas at 800-257-7325 (In Canada: 866-212-7325).
