1 Engineer Training Substrates Lesson 1.8

2 Engineer Training Substrates Confidential 2 Context  What are the printing substrates?  Materials frequently used on signage market, their properties and applications.  Materials leading brands.  Substrates for Superjet.

3 Engineer Training Substrates Confidential 3 What This Presentation Gives You  Knowledge about materials used by our customers.  Knowledge about customer applications and why they use a specific material for certain applications.  In the bottom line: better communication with customers, understanding their needs and problems.

4 Engineer Training Substrates Confidential 4 Introduction  Substrates with paper liner (top cover)  Corrugated (fluted) carton  Compressed carton  Foam board  Plastic substrates  Polycarbonate  Foam PVC  Acrylic  Polypropylene  Aluminum Composite Materials  Polystyrene

5 Engineer Training Substrates Confidential 5 Carton  What is liner? Types of liner.  What is flute?  Most popular flutes for FB6700 (E, B, C, EB, BC). Thickness depends on flute type.  Compressed (non fluted) cartons.

13 Engineer Training Substrates Confidential 13 Plastics In the Beginning  The first product called Celluloid was created as the first commercial plastic. (1868)  The first photographic film was Celluloid (1882).  In the 1920’s, the big progress in development took place with the introduction of Vinyl and Nylon.

14 Engineer Training Substrates Confidential 14 Polycarbonate Polycarbonate sheets are as transparent as glass, but 200 times stronger while weighing 50% less. They provide the answer to virtually every covering and glazing application.

53 Engineer Training Substrates Confidential 53 Substrates - Self Adhesive Vinyl Vinyl is a layered, plastic-based substrate, constructed as follows:  Paper or fabric is covered with a thin layer of silicon, onto which an adhesive is applied.  A layer of PVC is added; all are heat-fused. Advantages:  The PVC surface is water resistant, very flexible and strong.  Dryness and humidity do not affect the vinyl’s flatness. Disadvantages:  The PVC surface can be a problem when printing with water-based ink (surface tension).
