Title
(EN) IMAGED ARTICLES COMPRISING A SUBSTRATE HAVING A PRIMED SURFACE
(FR) ARTICLES ILLUSTRES COMPRENANT UN SUBSTRAT POURVU D'UNE SURFACE APPRETEE
Abstract
(EN) The present invention relates to an imaged article comprising a substrate having a primed surface layer. The primed surface layer is comprised of a base polymer having a solubility parameter, molecular weight (Mw) and glass transition temperature within a specified range. The presence of the primer improves the overall image quality by improving at least one property including ink uptake, dot gain, color density and/or ink adhesion. Preferred primer compositions are soluble at least in part in the ink composition resulting in an increase in ink layer thickness that further improves the durability and/or day/night color balance. A variety of substrates may be primed including various sheeting for traffic control signage and commercial graphic films for advertising and promotional displays.
(FR) Cette invention concerne un article illustré comprenant un substrat pourvu d'une surface apprêtée. La couche de surface apprêtée est composée d'un polymère de base présentant un paramètre de solubilité, un poids moléculaire (Mw) et une température de transition vitreuse qui sont compris dans une gamme spécifiée. La présence de l'apprêt permet d'améliorer la qualité générale de l'image, car elle améliore au moins une propriété parmi lesquelles, l'absorption de l'encre, l'élargissement du point, la densité des couleurs et/ou l'adhérence de l'encre. Les compositions d'apprêt privilégiées sont solubles, au moins en partie, dans la composition d'encre, ce qui permet d'obtenir une meilleure épaisseur de la couche d'encre, laquelle, à son tour, améliore la durabilité et/ou l'équilibre des couleurs jour/nuit. Divers substrats peuvent être apprêtés, parmi lesquels, divers bâchages pour la signalisation servant à la régulation du trafic, et des films graphiques publicitaires destinés aux affichages publicitaires.
