PALIGHT®

Família de produtos para impressão, display, fabricação e muito mais

A Palram produz produtos de PVC desde 1963 e tem orgulha da sua reputação como líder global neste setor. Com base no conhecimento e na experiência acumulados, a Palram desenvolveu uma linha de produtos para atender todo tipo de necessidades e orçamentos. As chapas de PVC expandido PALIGHT são significativamente mais leves e econômicas que outras opções, como as chapas de PVC compacto. Elas também oferecem excelente rigidez e desempenho. PALIGHT é um dos muitos produtos que a Palram desenvolveu para o crescente mercado de impressão, display e fabricação.

EXPANSÃO LIVRE VS. PROCESSO CELUKA

Expansão livre e Celuka são os dois tipos predominantes de tecnologias de fabricação de PVC. Embora ambos estejam disponíveis há algum tempo, a Palram prefere o método de expansão livre, já que ele produz uma densidade mais consistente em todo o painel.

A chapa fabricada de acordo com os altos padrões da Palram tem uma estrutura celular densa no seu núcleo e não contém vazios ou grandes bolhas de ar. O PVC Celuka normalmente tem uma estrutura central menos densa, com uma “pele” mais dura na superfície externa que às vezes pode resultar em lascas quando cortado.

A imagem mostrada aqui destaca em azul a espessura típica da pele mais dura, e ela mostra lascas na borda  do produto Celuka. As chapas produzidas pelo processo de expansão livre são geralmente mais fáceis de trabalhar e polir e resultam em um acabamento melhor que o dos produtos Celuka.

Perguntas Frequentes

What are three-dimensional or 3D logo signs?
+ -

3D letters and/or 3D logos are made of plastic, metal or foam. They reinforce an upscale image and create a clear highlighted message. These signs can be illuminated when required.

Should products be pre-dried before thermoforming?
+ -

This depends on the production date and storage conditions of the product before thermoforming. It is recommended to check the product before thermoforming is attempted.

Is the PE film suitable for thermoforming applications?
+ -

Most of Palram's products that are delivered with PE film covering are suitable for thermoforming. In general, we recommend using clear PE and not printed PE.

When should I use multiwall polycarbonate and when solid polycarbonate?
+ -

Multiwall polycarbonate should be used when the key design parameter is thermal insulation. Solid polycarbonate should be used when the key design parameter is acoustic insulation and glass-like appearance.

Which of Palram's sheets are suitable for printing, sign & display applications?
+ -

For use in illuminated signage, PALSUN, PALSUN CS (Coil Stock) and PALGLAS are suitable for the sign face; and PALBOARD, PALOPAQUE, and PALIGHT for the body of the letters or symbols. For print & display, Palram's entire product portfolio can be used based on the specific application. This choice depends on a combination of several parameters, including the cost of the media, its durability, and its suitability for the specific application. Please visit Palram’s Flat sheet application catalog for more information.

Which materials can be used in the construction of my sign?
+ -

Sign faces are usually made from polycarbonate or acrylic. For extreme conditions such as heavy hail, low temperatures, or high temperatures produced when thermo-forming, polycarbonate is probably more suitable. For sign boxes or channel letter cans, PVC, multi-layered PVC and foam PVC can be used.

What is an illuminated sign?
+ -

A sign that is illuminated by an electrical light source (fluorescent\LED).

What is the most accurate white point that is suitable for wide-format printing?
+ -

There are different white substrates available but in order to achieve a true colored image according to the design, a process of profiling (ICC profile) needs to be done. By using a natural white substrate (a tint which been made with no extra additives), the process of measuring and profiling becomes very simple and fast.

How do I handle inkjet printable media before and after printing?
+ -

Before: use a protected sheet with PE masking, store unused inkjet printable media in original packaging and in a clean area, and avoid touching the print side by handling the edges of the sheet or by using lint-free white gloves.

After: avoid any finishing until prints are completely dry, store the printed media in a clean environment, and avoid dust from sticking to the fresh cured ink.

What is the difference between a polypropylene sheet and PVC?
+ -

In terms of ink adhesion properties, both polymers act very differently. PVC is a ready-to-use polymer so no pre-treatment needs to be done before printing (on rigid or flexible media). Polypropylene has different chemical properties and for this reason, needs to get a pre-treatment coat ('Corona'), which has a limited shelf life.

What is the best wide-format inkjet media (substrate) for my application?
+ -

This is based on a combination of several parameters, but the main ones are the cost of the media and its durability, and its fit to the required application. Please visit Palram’s Flat Sheet Application Catalog.

What can assure accurate double-sided printing or recto verso prints?
+ -

A strict spec of diagonal (from angle to angle) during the production process is feasible for this.
