UV Stable Digital Printing with Foamalux "Bright White"

White Foam PVC

A "Brighter White" substrate, engineered for use with the new breed of high definition wide format digital printers, is the latest innovation in the Foamalux range of foamed PVC flat sheet from market leader Brett Martin Plastic Sheets. Extensive research into colour pigmentation has led to the development of a brighter white colour formulation throughout the Foamalux range which optimises reproduction capabilities to achieve outstanding print clarity and quality – for a white that makes your print look mint.   

Advanced image processing delivered in the latest digital technology demands high performance substrates for the quality output of dazzling images and pin sharp text for the highest quality signs, point of purchase displays and exhibition backdrops. To ensure maximum compatibility with evolving digital technologies, Brett Martin Plastic Sheets have developed Foamalux "Bright White", in consultation with digital equipment manufacturers and ink producers to create a substrate for high quality digital imaging and excellent colour reproduction.

The pigment formulation in Foamalux "Bright White" has been innovated to provide the maximum levels of UV stability in the ink curing process to produce outstanding image quality and the highest standards of digital reproduction for demanding six and seven colour imaging requirements.  

Manufactured to exacting tolerances, the ultra smooth, semi matt surface finish of Foamalux "Bright White" provides a consistently even, reliable surface for digital printing.  The uniform, expanded closed cell structure gives Foamalux "Bright White" a hard, flat surface, providing exceptional rigidity and mechanical properties for intricate die cutting and routering.  The hard surface is also more durable providing excellent resistance to knocks and scratches at the point of display.

Foamalux "Bright White" is available in a wide range of sheet sizes, lengths 2440-3050mm, widths 1220-2050mm and thicknesses 1-19mm for a variety of print and display applications.

Duncan Smith, Sales Director of Semi-finished Products, commented, “The innovation of Foamalux "Bright White" illustrates how we constantly strive to improve and develop our products to provide the best range for our customers. Foamalux "Bright White" presents the optimum surface for print clarity to achieve maximum stand out for signage and in-store point of sale.  Companies who have trialed the product are delighted with the results and we think that our customers will find that it is a very useful addition to the Foamalux colour portfolio.”
