LAMINATING FILM FOR UV PRINTS ORAFOL Americas Inc., Black Creek, Georgia, introduces ORAGUARD 215DU Laminating Film designed specifically for overlamination of UV printed graphics. ORAGUARD 215DU solves the No. 1 issue with laminating UV prints, silvering. Silvering occurs when the laminating film adhesive doesn't fully adhere to the surface of a UV print. This is typically more noticeable in darker printed areas and the most common problem of laminating UV printed graphics. Use ORAGUARD 215DU and say goodbye to silvering with a better bonding adhesive specially formulated for UV printed graphics. ORAGUARD 215DU laminating film is available 54" and 60" x 50 yards and in both matte and gloss. For information, visit www.orafolamericas.com. DIRECT-TO-GARMENT PRINTHEAD The M&R Companies, Roselle, Illinois, introduce the DigitalSqueegee high-speed direct-to-garment digital printhead. A preproduction model of the DigitalSqueegee was previewed at the ISS Long Beach Show in January, where it performed flawlessly with M&R's Stryker automatic oval press. The hybrid system was used to print images on both white and black shirts using screen-printed acrylic-based white ink to provide a toned underbase for the black shirt art. The DigitalSqueegee can deliver a full-color 40 x 50 cm (16" x 20") image in less than five seconds. It can be integrated with newer M&R automatic presses, and the CMYK images printed by the DigitalSqueegee are fully compatible with standard and advanced screen printing techniques, which can be used either before or after the digital print takes place. The formal launch will take place in May. Product details and specifications will be available at that time. For information, visit www.mrprint.com/ digitalsqueegee. SDG
