Press release from the issuing company

Ideal for large building wrap applications, pole banners and any double-sided mesh printing, Supreme Mesh offers extreme tear-resistance under the most challenging weather conditions

Elmwood Park, NJ – Designed to stand up to Mother Nature’s wrath, new Duratex Supreme Mesh from Agfa Graphics is the answer to the prayer for tear-resistant outdoor signage. Supreme Mesh and many of the popular Duratex media offerings will be on display at SGIA 2016 where attendees can learn about Agfa Graphics inkjet media solutions in two booths (1551 and 1561), along with the newest UV wide-format engines, workflow software and applications created using those tools. 

Supreme Mesh for Extreme Conditions

Duratex Supreme Mesh has a 90/10 air flow, is extremely tear-resistant and is made to withstand harsh, windy environments. Its block-out characteristics make it perfect for any double-sided print applications. Available in two roll sizes (126”x164’ and 196”x164’), Supreme Mesh is compatible with most solvent, eco-solvent, latex and UV curable inkjet printers (using mesh kits). The tear-resistant Supreme Mesh is constructed of 2,520 x 2,520 denier scrim reinforcement and a 33 x 33 weave. 

“We are committed to bringing high quality, wide-format media to the industry at competitive prices,” said Gary York, Wide-Format Specialist, Agfa Graphics North America. “We anticipate that many PSPs will find Supreme Mesh a better solution over 18 oz block-out banner because it’s tougher and holds up better. We have a strong mesh product line that offers outstanding performance against the competition.” 

Supreme Mesh tops off the Duratex mesh product line which includes Duratex Standard Mesh, Premium Mesh and Black Back Mesh. The wider Duratex line includes value selections in banner, backlit, adhesive backed, rigid and textile media. The Duratex brand serves UV, latex and solvent markets providing quality products at competitive price points.

Agfa Graphics is the largest supplier in North America of flexible and rigid substrates to the graphics communications industry. With a skilled team of application specialists trained to support its vast media portfolio, only Agfa can provide ongoing printing and installation guidance as a value-add to its comprehensive inkjet media line. 

Agfa Graphics’ team of wide-format specialists will be available to discuss these and other technologies and services at SGIA 2016 in booth #1551 and #1561. SGIA 2016 is being held at the Las Vegas Convention Center from September 14–16, 2016.
