Hall B6, Booth D20: SENFA, a leading global provider of high quality, digitally-printable fabrics for visual communication and bespoke interior applications, has announced the launch of several new products at FESPA 2019.
The new products demonstrate SENFA's growing reputation for delivering high quality textile media products for a broad range of applications.
SUBLIMIS is a versatile media for transfer and direct sublimation printing for water-based and UV-curable ink. Launched in 2018, this innovative product range creates new opportunities for print businesses that use dye sublimation technology and also UV technology for backlit graphics applications. SUBLIMIS is an extremely lightweight product, making it easy to transport and install for backlit applications, while enabling great quality high definition printing.
Blaise Humphries, sales director or SENFA, comments: "Previously, sublimation printing onto coated media for backlit applications led to problems due to a phenomenon known as ink migration whereby, after printing, the ink tended to migrate to areas on the substrate where it shouldn't - causing disastrous results. With SUBLIMIS, ink migration is a thing of the past and printers using sublimation technology can now aspire to hitting the very best possible white point and delivering the punchy colours that only coated media can provide." The product was recently awarded the SGIA Product of the Year 2018 in the media/textile/framing system category in LAS VEGAS."
He continues, "Even as a coated media, SUBLIMIS is more lightweight than many of the uncoated textiles typically used for backlit applications, meaning it's cheaper to transport and easier to install. The light diffusion is also excellent thanks to Sublimis' unique formula."
Following new partnership arrangements, visitors to FESPA can see Sublimis in action. The products will be running on both the HP and Monti Antonio booth, demonstrating the products' capabilities and excellent print results.
SENFA, will also promote THEATER BLACK BACK (205g/m²). This material delivers excellent image quality and provides total blockout of all light from behind thanks to it solid black back. It can be printed on the textile side with UV-curable ink and direct sublimation to enable striking visual communications and is ideal for banner and frame systems as well as short-term outdoor events. Theater Black Back is another lightweight product, which is easy to install and is a good alternative to PVC substrates with fire certification M1 / B1. At FESPA 2019, SENFA is announcing the availability of this product in widths up to 5.10m.
Acoustic Solution for Interior Decoration
Further exciting new products being presented at FESPA 2019 by SENFA are the ECHOSIDE 60 textile. These multi-sensory interior textile substrates are designed to create a unique atmosphere for decorated spaces. ECHOSIDE 60 acoustic solutions are capable of absorbing sound reverberation in a room, which has a huge positive impact on people's comfort and sensory experience. Thanks to its acoustic coating, the fabric absorbs sound reverberations, and in particular, reverberation from speech and can positively transform the experience of being in busy spaces, such as offices, restaurants, meeting rooms and more.
In addition to its acoustic properties, ECHOSIDE 60 can be digitally printed with UV-curable and Latex inks, without affecting its noise reduction properties. By using it as a wall hanging, you can transform a wall into a communication medium or a customised design element. Thus, this product optimally meets the technical and aesthetic requirements for public and private spaces. This product is certified M1 / B1 / Bs1d0 and A+.
The product was just certified by HP on the HP latex 1500 for interior wall decoration. Visit our booth to discover the print results on UV and latex and discuss the broad range of applications possibilities.
All SENFA products are made in France and meet the very highest standards for fire certification. The company is rapidly establishing an increased worldwide presence.
