DuPont Tedlar film for indoor and outdoor signage

DuPont Advanced Printing and DuPont Advanced Materials will together present their newest innovations during SignExpo 2019, which takes place between 24 and 27 April in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Visitors will learn more about a new clear DuPont Tedlar film for indoor and outdoor signage applications, and digital textile inks for roll-to-roll (RTR) applications including banners and signage made from DuPont Artistri inks.

At the show, DuPont Advanced Materials will showcase its new formulation of clear DuPont Tedlar.

“This new film is designed for indoor/outdoor signage durability with extreme UV protection and cleanability to remove common graffiti, stickers and other debris. Even the harshest chemical cleaners won’t damage the film,” said Chris Marino, global marketing leader for DuPont Advanced Materials.

DuPont Advanced Printing will showcase Artistri Xite digital inks, which are printed onto surfaces including nylon, polyester and vinyl, making them a preferred choice for printing signs, banners and flags. These inks deliver color saturation as well as UV and water resistance for outdoor applications.

“From dye sub, direct disperse and pigment, to acid and reactive inks, DuPont Artistri digital inks provide rich, bright colors across many substrates within the sign industry. Because DuPont proprietary dispersions, polymers and ink formulations span a range of viscosities, they allow Artistri inks to work with almost any wide-format digital printer,” said Jeff Hansen, regional marketing manager, Americas – DuPont Advanced Printing.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
