TOME EV2002 Series, renowned for its versatility, finds its purpose in diverse applications, ranging from public transportation systems and rail transit systems to various advertising displays. Specifically designed for smooth flat surfaces and slight curves, such as corrugated boards, PVC sheets, KT boards, acrylic, and exhibition boards, this series offers a broad spectrum of possibilities. Achieving optimal results hinges on adhering to the prescribed instructions for preparation and application.
Careful handling of the product is paramount during the printing process. Utilizing cotton gloves is advisable to prevent damage to the surface or soiling. Surface quality and print files should be thoroughly examined prior to printing or application. Different qualities of TOME products necessitate varied parameter settings for printers and selecting software (RIP). Consideration of ink quantity and specific color definitions is imperative. A printing environment with a temperature of 22±3°C and a relative humidity of 50±10% is recommended for optimal results.
Freshly printed films require adequate drying time to allow residual solvents to evaporate. Printing vinyls prematurely may lead to shrinkage in the printed areas. Early lamination can impact the film’s functionality, affecting adhesive power and service life by impeding solvent evaporation. Following the provided instructions, it is recommended to spread out and dry the film for a minimum of 24 hours, either lying or hanging.
Surface preparation is a crucial step before application, necessitating a thorough cleaning to eliminate dirt, dust, or grease. A wet application method is recommended during application to ensure closer adhesion of graphics to the surface. Post-application, the use of a squeegee is essential to eliminate excess moisture from the surface.
