3M (St. Paul, Minn.) launched an economy line of inkjet films. 3M Scotchcal Graphic Film Series IJ10 and Series IJ11 are suitable for inkjet printing with UV, solvent, eco-solvent, and latex inks, says the company.
The films come in 50-meter (164-ft.) rolls, offering users an extra 63 sq. ft. compared to typical 50-yard rolls. Designed for permanent adhesive applications such as interior and exterior signage, decals, and POP graphics, the 3.1-mil vinyl films come with a clear or gray permanent, pressure-sensitive adhesive. Available in gloss and matte finishes, the films feature a heavier liner to help the material resist buckling. Film IJ10-114 is a clear product that can be used as both a digitally printable clear film and an overlaminate.
