Avery Dennison Showcases Multi-purpose Inkjet Film and Special TY Products at 2014 APPP Expo

Shanghai, China—June 30, 2014— Avery Dennison introduced a wide range of multi-purpose inkjet (MPI) films and specialty products which enable brand owners to create eye-catching graphics that increase awareness and drive sales at the APPP Expo 2014 in Shanghai, China.

"Avery Dennison’s MPI portfolio of films is not only about high aesethic quality and vibrant colours, but also about durability,” said Pravin Krishnan, marketing director of Graphics Solutions, Avery Dennison Asia Pacific."These graphics media can be applied on virtually any surface, with excellent resistance to weather and abrasion.”

The MPI range is tightly integrated with today’s leading digital inkjet printing technologies, compatible with latex, solvent, eco-solvent and UV-curable inkjet printers.The complete line of products are designed to meet a broad range of graphics application needs, such as vehicles, building graphics, architecture and advertising.

Incorporating Avery Dennison’s patented Easy Apply RS™ and Easy Apply™technologies, the MPI products enable correct  positioning and easy application of the printed materials on challenging surfaces like corrugated substrates or 3D curved surfaces. Installers of almost any skill level should be able to apply MPI films with the Easy Apply technology and limit wrinkling and air bubbles. In addition, Avery Dennison has developed digital overlamination (DOL) films to accompany its MPI media. These films offer a protective overlay for inkjet-printed graphics to improve durability and functionality. With DOL films, printed images can be protected  from abrasion, humidity, UV light, heat, dust and even graffiti. The high-transparency overlaminates are combined with a specially-formulated adhesive that bonds the film and the printed layer perfectly, greatly improving the visual impact of the graphics.

Built on nearly 80 years of technical expertise and innovations in the pressure-sensitive adhesive materials industry, Avery Dennison’s comprehensive MPI portfolio of digital printing media can meet many different requirements from customers in terms of applications, performance and durability. Avery Dennison also offers the largest selection of free International Colour Consortium (ICC) profiles for printers in the industry. With ICC profiles, Avery Dennison customers can easily find, organise and update their media profiles for digital printing, enabling them to efficiently set up their printers, ink, media and print processes to achieve greater accuracy and less wastage.
