Pacesetter DigiSyn

Pacesetter DigiSyn is a PET synthetic grade designed to withhold greater temperatures than PP grades. It is also dry toner compatible and tear, water, oil and weather resistant.
    • Synthetic grade designed for digital print
    • Run through digital dry toner based machines with confidence
    • Water, oil and weather resistant                         
    • Tear resistant
    • Wide range of text and cover weights     
    • Temperature resistance up to 200° C
    • Posters      
    • Shelf wobblers   
    • Short run tags           

    Digital Printing

    The large variety of toner-based digital printing systems makes it impossible to provide general processing recommendations. Good print results are mainly influenced by the type of toner, the applied voltage, the temperature, and the exposure time in the printing unit. MDV can confirm suitability for digital printing only for industrial printing systems, excluding commercial desktop laser and inkjet printers.

    Standard machine settings, as for paper, are recommended.  Some printers allow individual parameters to be varied. For good print results, obey the technical specifications of the system, ensure its proper usage conditions, adhere to maintenance intervals & use original toners/ inks.

    VIP (Variable Information Printing)

    Pacesetter DigiSyn can be printed on with most commercially available thermal transfer and thermal sublimation printers. With thinner qualities, there is no danger of deformation when printing with dot matrix printers. Prior testing for suitability of use is recommended.

    Static Charge

    ln a warm and dry environment, the material can acquire a higher static charge. Print room conditions of 55 - 60 % relative humidity with a temperature of 18 – 23°C are therefore important. Furthermore, the printing machine should be supported by adding static eliminators (for example, copper cables in contact with the sheet surface and earthed through the machine at various points along the machine length), as well as by adding humidifiers, if necessary.

    Guillotining

    Pacesetter DigiSyn can be guillotine cut, just like paper, provided that any air cushions are expelled from the maximally 15 cm stack. Press beam pressures should be kept to an absolute minimum.

    Storage and Handling

    Pacesetter DigiSyn may be stored and handled like paper. Sheets should be stored flat and in airtight packaging. Although synthetic materials are less sensitive to temperature and humidity variations than paper, extremes should be avoided. Unpacked sheets should not be stored in direct sunlight for long periods. Naturally, mechanical damage to the product should be avoided.

    Sheets should be brought to the print room at least 24 hours prior to use for acclimatisation. The time required for acclimatisation of Pacesetter DigiSyn is longer than for paper, as sheets in the middle of a stack require more time to reach print room conditions. Storing conditions should be approx. 55 - 60% relative humidity and 18 – 23°C temperature. Under these conditions, Pacesetter DigiSyn may be stored without problems for up to two years.

     

    Test and Trialling:

    We always recommend that the sheet is test and trialled before commencing a print job. This is to determine that the sheet is suitable for the particular machine and the particular print job.
