SOFLEX Mesh series includes 5 classic types of Mesh, which comes from Soyang’s Germany coating line up to 5 meters (197”), is widely used for wall wraping, billboard, Banner,display and even indoor decoration like curtains. Our mesh can be printed on both sides with UV ink and it’s PVC backing line also makes it easy when feeding and printing on machines.
SoFlex – Mesh can provide various wind flow between 25% and 65%, and they are all suitable for large format advertisement, wiith unique recipe, SoFlex-Mesh can offer enhanced image compared to traditional meshes. SoFlex-Mesh is widely used for scaffolding, theatrical, TV backdrops and so on. For all items except Mesh-6, a PVC backing is available which could prevent ink spray through when printing and makes the feeding easy.
Latex printing technology has only been out for a few years, and it is booming and becoming a very popular printing method. The quality it yields can be breathtaking, and it may have some advantages over solvent. I wanted to highlight some of the differences between the two technologies (latex and solvent ink), and the pros and cons between them as well.
One thing latex brought to the playing field when it was introduced was how eco-friendly it is. The inks used are better for the environment, and they are just as vibrant as some solvent printers. The latex printer does not require a ventilation system or a scrubbing system like some solvent printers do, and VOC’s are virtually non-existent with this printer.
Getting down to the basics, the main difference between a solvent based printer and latex based hinge on two factors. The first one is how it delivers ink to the substrate, and more specifically, what the inks consist of. They also differ how the substrate reacts when the inks are applied.
Solvent inks and latex inks have totally different chemistry. In solvent inks, the ink vehicle is comprised of pigment (color), plus an etching agent which helps ‘etch’ out the media when it has been applied, and an evaporating agent which assists in drying the ink out. The ink is ejected out of the print head, hits the media, the etching chemical then etches (or creates a void) into the media where the ink will reside, and then the heaters on the printer help evacuate the drying agent in the ink. During the drying process, the liquid parts of the ink will evaporate, leaving the pigment in place.
Latex ink consists of 80% water and pigment. Latex does require quite a large drying unit to cure the ink to the media and help evacuate the water, but the ink comes out 100% dry. Solvent prints requires a period of 12 to 24 hours to take place so outgassing may occur. If you don’t do this step, and move directly to laminating, little bubbles will appear in the laminate, thus defacing the print.
The delivery methods in both units are pretty close to the same, however, when the latex printer needs new print heads, I can install them myself for a fraction of the cost. When you look at solvent units, the head replacement is typically very expensive, plus a technician is required to do the replacement. On the flip side of that, the heads in a solvent machine will outlast those in latex units 5 to 1.
One thing I don’t like about our latex HP L25500 is the paper path. It takes practice to get the unit loaded, but it can be done in three minutes time. The solvent ink printers I have seen have a ‘straight thru’ path, takes the challenges out of loading the unit.
Branch Office Direct Printing can reduce Wide Area Network (WAN) usage by printing directly to a print device instead of a server print queue. This feature can be enabled or disabled on a per printer basis and is transparent to the user.
This feature requires a print server running Windows Server 2012 and clients running Windows 8. It is enabled by an administrator using the Print Management Console or Windows PowerShell on the server.
Branch Office Direct Printing may be able to save your organization money by reducing network traffic on expensive WAN links and by reducing the workload on busy print servers centrally located in your datacenter.
Branch Office Direct Printing may benefit your organization in the following ways:
Client computers running Windows Server 2012 obtain printer information from the print server, but send the print jobs directly to the printer. The print data no longer travels to the central server and then back to the branch office printer.
The printer information is cached in the branch office, so that if the print server is unavailable for some reason (for example if the WAN link to the data center is down), then it is still possible for the user to print.
The client computer renders the print job before sending it to the printer. The major difference between Branch Office Direct Printing and Client-Side Rendering (CSR) is that Branch Office Direct Printing does not send the print job to the server. Instead the job is sent directly to the printer, resulting in a significant reduction in network bandwidth usage when the printers are centrally managed.

Cools Your Home or Other Living Space. Solar screen on windows can cool problem rooms up to 15 degrees in warm climates making the home or other living area much more comfortable in the hot summer months.
Reduce Cooling Energy Costs. Independent Studies have shown that solar screen installed on exposed windows can reduce the cooling portion of electric energy costs as much as 30-35% on a typical home in a warm climate.
Protection from Fading. The UV rays blocked by solar screen can help protect your valuable home furnishings such as furniture, drapes, floors and paintings.
Daytime Privacy. With solar screen on your windows, it is very hard, if not impossible for people to see into your home during the daylight hours. Much like dark sunglasses, even though people can’t see in, outward visibility can be excellent, especially with the darker color (black, brown or dark bronze) Solar Screen.
Reduced Glare. Solar screen helps reduce the glare coming in through the windows. This benefit can be very beneficial in the family television, media room or home office.
