Transform Anything Into Full Color With LexJet Infinium
Dec 16, 2011 (12:12 PM EST)
SARASOTA, Fla., Dec. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- LexJet Infinium conforms to virtually any material to reproduce customized, full-color images and graphics for a variety of decorative and promotional applications on demand.
LexJet has introduced the graphics and decorating industries' first fully transportable graphic, Infinium, a print medium with laminate and adhesive built into one conformable material. LexJet Infinium can be applied to virtually any surface, including irregular and unusual surfaces, using heat, water or a primer (LexJet Infinium Bond).
When applied, LexJet Infinium fully conforms to almost anything and essentially becomes part of the material. When applied to canvas, for instance, it retains the exact look and feel of the canvas as if nothing has been applied to it, other than the full color image that decorates it. The same holds true for virtually any material – including tile, stone, wood and leather – in order to create custom full color photographic quality images for a variety of promotional and decorative applications.
"Fully transportable means that, with Infinium, you can print the same material with the same image on the same printer for use in multiple applications," says Jeff Leto, LexJet product manager. "This conformable material gives you the ability to take the graphic anywhere you want onto virtually any substrate and image it."
Infinium is not a paper, it's not a film and it's not a transfer material. It's a clear material you reverse print and apply face down on the substrate with either water, heat or a primer, depending on the application and whether it's a temporary or permanent graphic.
Manufactured with water-based chemistries, LexJet Infinium is a sustainable material that has no VOCs and is PVC-free. And, since it includes print, adhesive and laminate qualities in one material it reduces waste and production steps. LexJet Infinium is compatible with most commonly used post-print processes, including laser cutting, routing and thermoforming without distorting the graphic. LexJet Infinium is compatible with low-solvent, solvent, latex and UV-curable large format printers.
