With the transition from older to new printing equipment, UV inkjet is the fastest growing technology in the wide format digital printing market for traditional screen printers. To support this changing environment and provide quality film and substrate solutions for difficult to print substrates, Tekra's JetView™ UV Inkjet films are designed specifically for UV inkjet printers. Yielding higher quality prints with enhanced ink adhesion and print vibrancy, these films are well suited for the industrial, electronic, graphics, and specialty print markets.
JetView UV Inkjet films come in a variety of films that offer different characteristics:
JetView UV Inkjet Polycarbonate
Tekra's proprietary UV inkjet coated polycarbonate is transcending the way wide format UV printers are printing on polycarbonate. Intended for more demanding applications, these coated films act as a promoter to UV ink to improve and enhance the ink adhesion to the film. Printed JetView UV Inkjet polycarbonate passes the ASTM D3359 cross hatch tape test for ink adhesion while uncoated polycarbonate routinely fails. Customer submitted printed JetView polycarbonate has also passed UL approvals allowing penetration into new markets for UV inkjet printers. While many are stocked and ready to ship, any Tekra stocked polycarbonate or hardcoated polycarbonate can be coated for UV inkjet printing.

The films are print treated for compatibility on a variety of UV inkjet presses and ink systems. Click here for a JetView UV Inkjet Polyester Print Compatibility Chart. JetView UV Inkjet polyester films come in three main colors: Clear, White, and Diffused. They are ideal of applications such as point-of-purchase signage, displays, and backlit signs.
