PALIGHT® EPS (ECONOMICAL PRINT SUBSTRATE) FOAM PVC

General purpose media substrate for cost-sensitive printing and display projects

PALIGHT EPS is a value-oriented foam PVC for digital and screen printers, display builders, and fabricators. It’s slightly lighter weight than PALIGHT Premium and other PALIGHT products, thereby reducing production and freight costs. Formulated to provide reliable performance for everyday, competitively-priced digital or silk-screen print applications, PALIGHT EPS is also a good choice for cost-sensitive or short-term display, lamination, and fabrication projects that do not require the added performance and rigidity of PALIGHT Premium or PALIGHT Outdoor.
