Limitations
Corrugated
cardboard: ink cracks after folding
Polypropylene:
limited adhesion for high ink coverage in
Signage print mode or faster
Polystyrene:
limited adhesion for high ink coverage, ink
chipping on edges after I-cutting
SAV:
limited handling in ¾ automatic loading. Post-print
folding causes cohesion and loss of adhesion (ink cracking)
