LG Chem does not warrant banner materials for the following.

  • Seamed in order to make a larger banner
  • Ripping, tearing, or damage due to the effects of the weather or the environment.

CAUTION: The weather resistance of the film that is laminated to the top of BANNUX or the ink used in printing may contribute to the durability of the end-products. Therefore, our warranty is just for undecorated BANNUX.

Maintenance

Use a cleaner used for high quality printed surfaces.

  1. The cleaner must be wet, non-abrasive, and without strong solvents or alcohol. (Solvent and alcohol can damage banner materials and printed images.)
  2. The cleaner must not be either strongly acidic or alkaline (pH value 3.0~11.0).

Shelf Life

  • Keep in a clean, dry area
  • Process the banner material within 1 year of factory shipment
  • Storage Condition: Free from excessive moisture, temperature, direct sunlight (20 x 50% R.H)
  • Keep away from chemicals such as oil and wax

Printing on Materials

  • VIZUON BANNUX UGS (UMS) is designed for digital printing with solvent inkjet inks.
  • To get the best print results, use the best quality of inks that the printer makers recommend.
  • The printer operator should work with the graphic designer or color conversion operator to prevent possible complications or color issues.
  • Do not exceed total ink coverage of 250% for VIZUON BANNUX materials.
    Too high of an ink level on banner materials may result in media characteristic changes, inadequate drying, and/or poor print quality.
  • Printing should be done under room temperature.
  • Too much tension and force may damage the material; therefore, keep the tension under 7 kgf.
