Optimized for flatbed digital printing, MAXMETAL 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. MAXMETAL is receptive to ink or paint with an epoxy base or urethane base two-part type ink or paint.
