FOREX®print is a lightweight, closed cell substrate sheet material designed specifically for digital printing and mounting applications. The major feature of FOREX®print is the bright white, uniform surface, this is a benefit to printers as it reduces wastage and downtime.
For some applications thin and delicate ink layers may have to be protected by a film laminate or topcoat of clear scratch and UV resistant lacquer.
The particularly uniform surface condition and the bright shade of white of FOREX®print sheets are best exploited in direct digital printing. Even though a PE film protects the upper faces of the FOREX®print sheets, improper handling may leave scratch marks on the surface. Be careful when moving FOREX®print sheets around and avoid fingerprints by wearing cotton gloves.
FOREX®print sheets can be cut with jigsaws, band saws and circular saws. A combination of high cutting speed and a slow feed rate gives good results. FOREX®print can be cut on machines without liquid cooling but with chip and dust extraction devices as commonly used in the wood and plastic processing industries.
