Matan Digital Printers and ORAFOL Americas Inc. (“ORAFOL”) announce an important breakthrough in traffic sign printing. In a collaborative effort, an innovative clear layer has been developed, for the successful Matan DTS line of digital Traffic Sign printers. The protective layer will be printed over the traffic colors at the same print run and in full print speed. This clear layer provides an extended outdoor protection for the printed signs against fading and weathering. ORAFOL offers a 10-year warranty for signs printed on ORALITE® Series 5900 High Intensity Prismatic reflective film, printed with Matan green and blue traffic colors and the new clear protective layer on top.
The new clear layer will be sold at a price about 5 times lower than regular over laminate, which makes the Matan-ORAFOL system the most cost effective traffic sign solution on the market by far.
"Until today, all types of Traffic Signs had to be covered with an over-laminate to ensure outdoor durability against fading and weathering. This over-lamination is both costly and time consuming, involves additional labor work and open to errors. It took two separate processes, first the printing and then applying the over laminate. Now both the printing and over laminating occur inside the printer in a single digital process, said Mr. Peter Brosch, Manager of Matan USA. "Traffic Sign makers have long been seeking a solution that overcome these obstacles, lowering the production cost and lead times. We now have the solution and it is so much cheaper and faster than any other existing traffic sign making system", added Brosch.Advertisement
Matan’s DTS line of Digital Traffic Sign Printers are available at printing widths of 12”, 36” and 40” (30.05 cm, 91.44cm and 101.6cm) and use Matan’s dry ink printing, which is perfectly suited for all types of traffic signage applications. They can print 4 or 6 traffic colors simultaneously and support all grades and types of reflective sheeting.
Producing top quality output at an unsurpassed high production speed of up to 800 sq ft/hour, the DTS printers are ideal for both short and long runs.
