Optimized for flatbed digital printing, MAX-metal™ DP comes with a low tack protective liner that reduces residue, static and preparation time. Having this protective liner makes it ready-to-apply for vinyl graphics. To prepare for flatbed printing or screen printing make sure the panel is clean of all dust or dirt. If necessary, wipe the panel down with a soft cloth dipped in alcohol. If flatbed printing, be extra careful to avoid getting fingerprints on the substrate. If printing on a flatbed printer, make sure the printer profiles are set up and you have tested the ink adhesion on a smaller scale. For screen printing, confirm the weatherability and adhesion of the ink or paint you will be using. MAX-metal is receptive to ink or paint with an epoxy base or urethane base two-part type ink or paint.
