MAXMETAL DP is an aluminum composite panel specifically designed for digital and screen printing applications. The aluminum panels have an ultra-white matte finish that enhances ink adhesion and makes printed colors more vibrant. The panels come prepared for digital flatbed printing, but can also be used with vinyl, screen print inks and paint.

MAXMETAL DP is comprised of two .15mm aluminum panels bonded to a solid polyethylene core. It is lightweight and durable, easy to fabricate and resists scratching and denting.
