Ink jet printing is a form of computer printing that creates digital images from propelling droplets of ink onto substrates. There are some key points to remember when using Teslin substrate:
Teslin SP substrate can be printed with pigment-based aqueous inkjet inks. Many suppliers offer pigment inks for their printers. For dye-based inks/printers, Teslin substrate IJ 1000WP is typically required for excellent ink densities. This substrate is specially treated with a PPG-developed coating. The substrate is optimized for inkjet printability and yields photo-realistic images. The coating is also optimized to laminate with standard thermal laminating films, and to print with dye-based aqueous inkjet inks in both wide and narrow formats.
Phase Change Ink Jet
Excellent images can be produced with phase change inkjet printers on Teslin substrate. However, the low melting point of wax inks and the thick layer on the surface of Teslin substrate will give severe image smearing if the printed piece is laminated with a thermal laminating film.
