Press Release: Roland Expands Media Line with 2 Clear Films

IRVINE, California, August 18, 2005 - Roland DGA Corp., a leading provider of wide-format inkjet printers and integrated printer/cutters, today announced the addition of two new clear films to its award-winning media lineup. Compatible with the company’s eco-solvent inkjets including popular VersaCAMM® and SOLJET™ models, this new media offering is particularly well suited for use with the SOLJET SC-545EX integrated printer/cutter with the company’s eco-solvent ink including the newly announced white ink.

“Roland remains committed to offering customers complete solutions that feature tested, profiled and certified media,” said Laura Wilson, product manager for Roland supplies and accessories. “These new clear films are ideal for the creation of indoor graphics including rigid acrylic displays, package prototypes, graphics overlays and other specialty applications. In addition, they deliver outstanding performance with Roland’s new white eco-solvent ink. We are very enthusiastic about this new media line, and we believe it will further expand the range of applications for our inkjet technology.”
The new media line features two options: Clear Film (ESM-CSF) and Clear Film with Adhesive (ESM-CSFP). Both are clear polyester films that image well and feature a special topcoat for eco-solvent applications. Designed for indoor graphics, these films support even the heaviest ink loads, including white ink floods and applications involving white floods as an underbase for four-color graphics. In addition, they perform beautifully with standard four-color graphics applications.
