Software Settings The coating on this product is engineered for 400% ink coverage. Optimal printer settings will vary
from printer manufacturers. Recommended heater settings of 122° F (50°C) for both pre and post
Light Fastness The fading time of inkjet ink is a direct result of the inks that you choose to use and the environment
where the print is displayed. Please consult with your ink manufacturer for light fastness data.
Finishing Tyvek can be sewn, grommeted, or hemmed with Heavy Duty Banner Tape. Grommets should be
placed in the hemline along the length of the banner so that the grommet is through two layers.
Corner grommets should be placed where the length and width hems cross, so that the grommet is
through four layers. A reinforced corner is also recommended to increase durability.
Water Resistance To obtain a high degree of water resistance, use only pigmented ink. Allow the print to dry for 24
hours before exposing to moisture. Lamination is not required. Ink saturation over 250% can affect
the water-resistant properties and show ink bleed.
