Correx Board and Estate Agent Sticker printing.

Correx board is an economical, lightweight, waterproof and versatile sign board used for display boards or advertising boards and is supplied in several sizes, from A1 to A3.

Correx is light, rigid and extremely cost effective. It is ideal for many kinds of sign displays and advertising applications.

The correx board we normally supply is 3 mm thick and because of the large quantities of these boards sold, it is also the most economical board available. However you also get 2, 3.5, 4 and 5 mm thick boards. It cannot rot or swell like timber or cardboard, because it is moulded from polypropylene, a type of plastic.

Correx is constructed like corrugated cardboard with a hollow box tube centre, known as flutes. It is mostly used for Estate Agent signs and used especially in and around Johannesburg.

What is UV Printing on correx boards.

UV Flatbed printing is the reproduction of digital images, typically on plastic and a wide variety of materials such as acrylics, foamboard, ABS plastic, glass and wood.

Printing with a flatbed printer onto correx boards is slowly replacing the silk screen system used before, for various reasons.

UV Flatbed printers use inks made of acrylic monomers that are then exposed to strong UV-light to cure, or polymerize them.

This process allows for printing on a wide variety of surfaces such as wood or metal, carpet, tile, and even glass.

The adjustable print head makes it possible to print on surfaces ranging in thickness from a sheet of paper often up to as much as 100 mm.

Typically used for commercial applications (retail and event signage), flatbed printing is often a substitute for screen-printing. Since no printing plates or silkscreens must be produced, digital printing technology allows shorter runs of signs to be produced economically.

Kind on the Environment

Environmentally, flatbed digital printing is based on a more sustainable system than its commercial predecessor of solvent printing as it produces fewer waste cartridges and less indoor air pollution.The resolution of flatbed printers range from 72 DPI (dots per inch) to about 1700 DPI.

The main advantage of a flatbed printer is the variety in printable materials although this is limited to only flat materials.
