Soyang Europe launches new HP Latex certified textile range
Soyang Europe has announced the availability of a new range of HP Latex certified textiles that leverage the most from the printer manufacturer’s latest latex ink set. All the new fabrics pass ISO 105-X12 test for dry rubbing, ensuring that not only are the prints vibrant and sharp, but more importantly, are robust enough for use in soft signage applications.
The entire range of fabrics is manufactured in Germany by Aurich Textilien and, as the company’s exclusive UK and Ireland distributor, Soyang Europe holds stock centrally for next day delivery. The range comprises a variety of products including the highly regarded Supernova knitted backlit, DigiFacination lightweight woven fabric, DigiPanorama 250 g high quality display fabric and the very competitively priced, lightweight DigiCompetition display fabric that’s ideal for stretch frame systems. All benefit from FR rating and thanks to the innovative preparation, are suitable for sewing, finishing and transporting without noticeable loss of image quality, change in gloss or mark off.
‘HP and Aurich have worked jointly to optimise this range of fabrics in order to achieve the best latex ink adhesion and thanks to the unique finishing agent, print companies with the latest generation HP Latex printers will see significant benefits,’ stated Soyang Europe managing director, Mark Mashiter. ‘The opportunities for printed textile continue to grow, so this is a substantial user base that can now enjoy great potential for incremental business with the new fabrics.’
‘We have seen an increase in requests from print companies with wide format latex machines for better performing fabrics, so we are delighted with the response we’ve had already to the new HP Latex certified range,’ concluded Mark.
Available exclusively through Soyang Europe, the new fabrics from Aurich join the company’s substantial portfolio of European, American and Far Eastern manufactured substrates that span the entire spectrum of roll fed printing for not only latex, but also UV, dye sub and solvent printers up to five metres wide.
