Key Features and Benefits of Digital Acrylic
There are many benefits associated with digital acrylic. The specially formulated face of this type of acrylic makes it the go-to option for flatbed printing. The face of the sheet was specifically made for the flawless adhesion of UV and latex ink. Rather than having to apply the standard adhesion promotors to the sheet, digital acrylic delivers a quicker, simpler, and more cost-effective method for printing.
Digital acrylic also offers many of the same advantages as continuously processed acrylic, but with more heightened features. Digital acrylic is best known for the following:
- Direct-to-print capability
- Optimal adhesion of UV curing inks
- Exceptional light transmission
- Chemical and corrosion resistance
- Light weight
- Superior strength and impact resistance
The transparency of clear digital acrylic is one of its most alluring attributes. The exceptional clarity of digital acrylic ensures that the colors of the printed design are radiant and brilliant. With this in mind, printers are able to produce high-quality, vibrant, and dazzling prints by utilizing modern UV digital flatbed technology.
Pros of Printing on Digital Acrylic Sheet
Clear digital acrylic sheet provides the perfect surface for eye-catching advertisements and home decorations. Although it is most commonly used for POP displays and signage, the versatility of acrylic also allows it to be used effectively in many industrial and construction applications.
Printing on digital acrylic effectively eliminates the costly and time-consuming task of applying adhesion promotors. Printers can now skip this step and print directly to the surface.
Like regular acrylic, digital acrylic sheet is durable and has an impressive resistance to the elements. The weatherability of digital acrylic allows it to last longer than alternative products like glass. Furthermore, acrylic is often a lower cost material, yet it still maintains a high-quality appearance thanks to its ability to resist weathering and yellowing over time.
