Graphics

With the ability to screen print almost every design or text onto any substrate or 3-dimensional object, the capabilities for today’s graphic printer appear to be limitless—but not without challenges. Emulsion selection and performance is a critical component for the success of every graphic application.

Medium / Large Format Graphics

Matching color is the greatest challenge for process color signs, POP and fleet Graphics. Chromaline’s graphic emulsions deliver high resolution, sharp edge-definition prints and ensure consistent and repeatable color matching.


Optical Media

Edge definition, fine text and halftones are the requirements for optical media graphics—the perfect job for Chromaline’s high-resolution emulsions!


Industrial Graphics

Machine interface panels provide the first impression of a product–they must communicate quality! Chromaline’s graphic emulsions provide high resolution and superior edge definition for appliances, switches, nameplates and instrument panels.


Containers

Direct-printed containers help increase product value! Chromaline emulsions can provide the high-resolution images and precise ink deposit necessary for creating the visual and tactile message of superior quality containers.


Challenges and Obstacles

Every day, graphic printers are confronted with obstacles; matching corporate colors for POP prints or fleet graphics, printing tiny, 6-point text on lotion bottles, and creating flawless industrial interface panels for appliances, autos, keyboards, and switch overlays—applications where high quality prints are imperative!
