Soyang Europe has taken on a range of HP Latex certified textiles for distribution in the UK.
Soyang Europe has announced the availability of a new range of HP Latex certified textiles that leverage the most from the printer manufacturer’s latest latex ink set.
The entire range of fabrics was developed by German textile manufacturer Aurich Textilien in collaboration with HP and are produced at Aurich’s Radevormwald site in Germany. As the company’s exclusive UK and Ireland distributor, Soyang Europe holds stock centrally for next day delivery.
The range comprises a variety of products, including Supernova knitted backlit, DigiFacination lightweight woven fabric, DigiPanorama 250g high quality display fabric and the lightweight DigiCompetition display fabric that’s ideal for stretch frame systems.
These all come with flame retardant ratings and are suitable for sewing, finishing and transporting without noticeable loss of image quality, change in gloss or mark off. They’ve all passed the ISO 105-X12 test for dry rubbing, making them robust enough for soft signage applications, according to Soyang.
“HP and Aurich have worked jointly to optimise this range of fabrics in order to achieve the best latex ink adhesion and thanks to the unique finishing agent, print companies with the latest generation HP Latex printers will see significant benefits,” said Soyang Europe managing director Mark Mashiter.
“The opportunities for printed textile continue to grow, so this is a substantial user base that can now enjoy great potential for incremental business with the new fabrics.”
“We’ve seen an increase in requests from print companies with wide format latex machines for better performing fabrics, so we’re delighted with the response we’ve had already to the new HP Latex certified range,” concluded Mashiter.
Soyang, which expanded its range last year to include new carpet materials for UV, distributes materials available for UV, dye-sublimation and solvent printers up to 5m-wide. It stocks a wide variety of fabrics, PVC materials and self-adhesive vinyls at its 6,500sqm premises in Altham, Lancashire.
