PVC Flex Banner is one of the most popular materials for outdoor and indoor signage.
It is highly flexible, durable, economical and has unique qualities. Moreover, it can be produced in two ways, the calendering method and the knife scraping process. The latter method involves applying a liquid PVC slurry to a base cloth. This results in a strong and crease resistant surface.
It is available in a variety of widths, thicknesses, colors and gloss levels. In addition, the material is UV-resistant, waterproof and has good resistance to weathering. There are also various laminated options for flex banners. These include laminated, frontlit, and knife coated flex banners.
Unlike other promotional advertising platforms, flex banners are very light in weight, are easy to clean and can be reused after the initial use. Therefore, a flex banner is considered as a sustainable and environment friendly alternative. A flex banner is ideal for use on all kinds of solvent printers. They can be used in all types of environments, including indoors and outdoors. Hence, they are perfect for high resolution prints.Aside from its versatile and cost effective features, a PVC Flex Banner has a lot to offer to new entrepreneurs.
It has a wide range of applications, including building signs, trade show displays, screen printing, and many others. Besides, the material is very attractive, with a smooth and appealing finish.
Since it is a relatively inexpensive and durable material, flex banners are widely used in all fields. Furthermore, the flex banner is also very environmentally friendly, as it can be recycled once its primary use has been completed.
Its light weight and durable nature also make it suitable for long-term outdoor usage. Its flexibility makes it convenient to print on and it is easy to install. Also, its ink absorption properties are excellent. If you are planning to print a flex banner for a business, you should consider using eco-solvent inks.Although PVC is a strong, versatile and affordable material, it does not contain recyclable components.
Therefore, you should choose a PVC-free vinyl product, such as an emulsion acrylic, if you want to avoid harming the environment.
PVC is a synthetic plastic polymer with polar chlorine atoms in its molecular structure. Chlorine, when heated, forms dioxins and chlorinated organic compounds.
Nevertheless, in the current climate, reusing and recycling flex banners is essential. Reusing them after their primary use is very important, as the PVC squanders out into the environment, releasing harmful pollutants. Another directive issued by the National Green Tribunal (NGT) in November 2017 recommends that the use of PVC be phased out for the manufacturing of flex boards.
Backlit Banners are an excellent way to highlight your images in the dark. The translucent material permits light to pass freely through in the back side of your banner, thereby creating your images come alive at night with minimal light. Backlit banners are normally printed in full color, high resolution, high quality paper, resulting in a brighter look on white background without paper shadow.
