8 Mil Water-Resistant Polypropylene is an 8-mil PP film that provides the brilliant color
reproduction and exceptional durability needed to produce short-term banners and outdoor
posters. The matte, water-resistant aqueous ink receptive topcoat is resistant to water and
abrasion while the high white point and ability to hold heavy ink limits provide saturated colors
that make images stand out.

Finish 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.
Tape & Stitched Hem – Banner tape can be used and is preferred to sewing. If sewing, a double-stitched
hem is recommended with a maximum of five stitches per inch. Banner tape at least 4 mils thick
performs the best. Finishing/Post Processing – Pressure sensitive vinyl laminates can be applied to
increase the fade and abrasion resistance of the image. Before applying the laminate, allow the image to
dry for 24 hours.

RIP & Printer Media
For the best and most consistent results, a profile should be created using an external color calibrator in
conjunction with your RIP and color matching software. However, if these tools are not available,
printers should be set for the highest print quality and media selection should be heavy coated. Ink
coverage up to 250% is recommended.
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.
