Specifically designed to provide optimal adhesion of UV curing inks without adhesion promoters, Optix® DA delivers all the benefits of continuously processed acrylic sheet in a specially formulated product for printing. Just as with Optix® sheet, Optix® DA provides superior strength and is available in a variety of sizes and thicknesses. Often, printers sacrifice the outstanding clarity of acrylic sheet, for the good UV ink adhesion properties offered by other plastic sheet substrates. With Optix® DA, the time consuming task of applying an adhesion promoter isn’t necessary. You can produce high-quality, vibrant colored prints utilizing UV digital flatbed technology, without the costly pre-press treatment-saving you time and money!
