Soyang Europe is set to introduce two exciting new backlit textiles from its French partner, SENFA’s Decoprint range, as it continues to expand its already extensive digitally printable substrate collections.


The first of the new releases is Sublimis - an innovative range of coated backlit textiles for direct and transfer sublimation printing that successfully reduces the issue of ink migration giving backlit applications really punchy graphics and colours and the best possible white point.


Sublimis is a coated woven polyester, available in widths up to 5m so is of interest to print providers servicing the retail and exhibition industry where large, continuous backlit prints are popular. It is non-stick, lightweight (making it desirable from a transport cost perspective) and provides excellent light diffusion to give the wow factor to light box displays.



The firm is also introducing Alterra, a PVC-free coated polyester that incorporates some 65% recycled fibres and is suitable for indoor backlit displays produced using more eco-friendly ink types such as UV and latex.”


Soyang Europe says this material provides superior print quality and light diffusion which makes it an attractive choice for specifiers in retail, for example, who are required to minimise environmental impact without losing any of the impact of POS light box displays.
