Media for Océ Digital Printers
Océ (www.oceusa.com) recently added Adhesive-backed Bond (ABBND) to its Océ Première Collection of media. It is designed for the use with the Océ ColorWave 600. Th 24-lb, white media includes a repositionable, acrylic-microsphere adhesive and a silicone release liner. Océ says ABBND is ideal for posters, indoor signage, and P-O-P displays. ABBND is available in widths of 24 and 36 in. (610 and 914 mm). Océ also reports that it has qualified several products produced by M-real Corp. for the Océ Arizona Series of flatbed UV inkjet printers, including M-real’s Carta Elega and Carta Integra paperboard and Kemiart topsheet used in corrugated-packaging applications. According to Océ, qualification consisted of producing samples on the Océ Arizona printer at the Océ Knowledge Center in Itasca, IL, followed by further evaluation by M-real. Océ says the resulting image quality and ink adhesion were exceptional using the Océ IJC256 Series inks, even when printed at high-volume-production speeds.
