Historically, large format quick-change graphics systems had been created by screen-printing ferrous inks onto the reverse of paper images to create a receptive surface for use in conjunction with magnetic sheet.
The addition of ferrous ink to paper created a surface that was inherently weak and prone to tearing. To solve this problem, thicker and heavier paper was used, resulting in a marginal improvement to performance with the downside of increased weight.
The introduction of digifilm® in 2005 was the beginning of the solution we provide today. Although digifilm® was a considerably more limited product in 2005 than what we offer now, it did solve the issues of tearing and of weight.
Following significant development, digifilm® is now a wide format, thin and flexible ferrous media, making it ideal for use in a retail environment.
Advancements in printing technology led to further enhancement, specifically to the coating on the printable face. As a result, digifilm® now accepts UV, solvent, eco-solvent and latex inks.
digifilm® is incredibly light yet robust, doesn't tear, rolls for shipment or storage and immediately returns to a flat state for application. Due to its thin nature, four layers of PET digifilm® or three layers of PP digifilm® can be laid on top of our supamag® magnetic sheet without losing purchase.
