I hear it all the time – lightweight digital polyester sheets can be a challenge to work with. If you’re using any one of the many top coated polyester films you know that’s true. Double sheeting issues in the feeding trays, and static bricking in the receiving trays can cause significant lost productivity while printing. And more often than not, when you run lightweight polyester sheets there will be some print finishing associated with the project, so fighting static while you are jogging and stacking, cutting and punching, or struggling while trying to fold a sheet that has too much memory to lay flat can really cost you.
So, what’s the answer to this issue? While our competitors believe that static is just an inherent issue with top coated digital films and they look to using lower cost cavitated films to try to mitigate the issue with price, we chose to look outside the box and develop a truly unique solution.
It all boils down to this…What price do you put on performance and productivity?
- Would you like a lightweight polyester sheet with STATIC FREE RUNNABILITY?
- Would you like a lightweight polyester sheet that performs like paper during print finishing?
- Would you like a lightweight polyester sheet that you can achieve a lay flat fold with?
- Would you like a lightweight polyester sheet that perfs well?
- Would you like a lightweight polyester sheet that is waterproof and durable?
If your answer to any of these questions is “yes” then you ought to give our 6 mil Fusion Soft Polyester Lite a try. The printed samples pictured above were produced on the lightest caliper of our highly successful Fusion Soft Polyester family. Waterproof and durable, 6 mil Fusion Soft Polyester Lite was originally developed to provide a lightweight, durable, and conformable substrate that could be printed on production toner equipment for the racing bib market. While we have been very successful with this application, customers continue to take advantage of the features and benefits of our products to grow new business and get the most out of their digital equipment.
Being the manufacturer allows us to listen to customers and develop the right solution. The solution wasn’t top coating a less expensive substrate which didn’t address runnability, static, folding and other print finishing issues. That would have been easy, but it wouldn’t have been right. Doing it right was to create a new product that was better for our customers and their customers. If you’re interested in trying our solution, 6 mil Fusion Soft Polyester Lite, please give us a call.
At Fusion Digital Paper™ we’re focused on better. Better products, better productivity, and better solutions.
