HP has introduced, through its licensing partner, Brand Management Group (BMG), a new 100% knitted polyester fabric for HP Latex Printers that is wrinkle-resistant, soft to the touch and features “an excellent colour gamut for a range of high-profile display applications.”
The new HP Light Fabric was tested for harmful substances and is certified according to the Oeko-Tex Standard 1001, and is REACH-compliant, providing confidence that the material poses no health risks when used as intended. The fabric is also flame-retardant to B1, M1, and NFPA 701 standards.
HP Light Fabric allows print shops to produce economical, lightweight, high-quality banners and display for special events, retail displays and exhibits – among other applications. And, says the OEM, since it’s crease-resistant and wrinkle-resistant, as well as rub-resistant and scratch-resistant, printers can have greater confidence in the final application when they pack and ship their fabric displays.
Characterized as “an excellent alternative to PVC for banners and displays,” HP Light Fabric is available in 42, 54, and 60-inch widths.
