Premium Backlit Polyester Film
This front print translucent polyester film offers excellent color depth and is designed for high quality graphic arts applications in backlit-boxes with high contrast. It's printed with UV inks, so it's waterproof and suitable for areas with high humidity and condensation, and it's extremely scratch resistant without the need for lamination. Like our other products, it can be laminated for increased stiffness or additional protection from physical damage in harsh environments. Available in widths up to 60".
Approx. longevity of 2 years outdoors and 5 years indoors.
It's a good weight to hold it's shape in light boxes where thinner films would look wavy. It offers excellent color density and saturation, which is important for illuminated graphics. It's PVC-free and eco-friendly.
It's not heavy enough to be self supporting in displays where the graphic slides in to a channel. A more rigid graphic, such as clear acrylic, should be used in those displays or the material needs to be sandwiched between two thinner acrylic sheets to hold it.
Backlit displays where the graphic is held in place by a snap frame or sandwiched between layers of clear acrylic.
