Stockage

Store the unwrapped STAFIX®GRIP in the original package at 25% to 50% relative humidity and 15°C to 25°C temperature. The material should remain sealed in the original wrap until the STAFIX®GRIP material has warmed up to print-room temperature.
Print-room recommended relative humidity is 50% to 60% and temperature is 18°C to 30°C. After use re-seal the remaining unused material in the original package. Proper acclimatization allows for better feeding through the press.

For pictures a raster of 60 – 70 l/cm is recommended. Create the black text of only 100% black for better registration. Avoid heavy deposits of ink for faster drying.

CLEAR MATERIAL
When printing an artwork on the clear material that will be used for window advertising, print the image mirror-wise and apply an additional covering white layer (either printed or a laminated layer) to reduce the transparency.
The sticker or poster is always installed from the unprinted side to the glass. The material adheres only from the unprinted side.

Always run a test with before printing a commercial job, specially for the first time printing on STAFIX®GRIP.

The STAFIX®GRIP UV–INKJET film is printable with UV and UV LED curable inks only. The film does not have a receptive primer and therefore it cannot be printed with solvent or water based inks. Adjust the UV lamps to a minimum level that still cures the inks but does not deform the film.

ON PRESS
If you have problems with the registration of the clear film it is recommended to apply masking tape along the edge of the material to allow for the sensors to gain registration of the clear material.


Post-press

STAFIX®GRIP UV-INKJET materials can be cut on the press’s own cutting system or on a table cutter. The white (PP) material is softer than the clear (PET) material and may need different pressure to be cut.
STAFIX®GRIP can be die-cut and kiss-cut. Always round the corners when die-cutting or kiss cutting because the inner-sharp corners might cause the film to tear Perforating, binding and direct mail inserting is also possible. When trimming, use sharp, nick-free blades.

PACKING & SHIPPING
