Top Value Fabrics (TVF, Carmel, Indiana) has expanded its textiles for latex printing with a new line of Latex Performance Textiles specifically engineered to create durable, high-quality production graphics utilizing HP Latex Technology. “Working closely in our partnership with HP, Top Value Fabrics has developed a proprietary coating for our top-selling digitally printable textile products to enhance the durability of HP Latex inks,” said Mike Compton, TVF Product Marketing Manager, interview on this subject published on the website. “Printing on our coated textiles with HP Latex print systems and inks provides finished graphic products with rich, brilliant colours with exceptional durability and fastness properties. Our new line of Latex-coated products covers a broad spectrum of end-use needs – including backlit, frontlit, stretch, banner and sheer fabric applications. These fabrics can be utilized for SEG frame systems, high-end retail, POP, banner stands, backdrops, roll-up displays, tradeshow exhibits and interior decor.”
The media in its high-performance line is constructed with a superior print-receptive treatment for maximizing the beauty of printing with latex ink technology. After imaging, the fabrics provide outstanding colour consistency, excellent image sharpness and a wide colour range. Several of the fabrics are built on similar constructions of best-selling fabrics in TVF’s Direct Print Textile Line. The new fabrics, the company added, are called Latex Performance as they all feature a proprietary coating for HP Latex Inks.
