Since its introduction over five years ago, the Avery Dennison TrafficJet? Print System has emerged as the best-selling digital print platform for specification compliant and warranted traffic signs around the world. The newest advancement, TrafficJet? Plus, nearly doubles print speed and lowers ink consumption by 30%. With signs warranted up to 15 years and global acceptance, it’s no surprise that this impressive technology captured the attention of the Committee for Accreditation of New Materials and Techniques of the IRC. Their review resulted in a formal approval of the TrafficJet Print System for the fabrication of traffic signs in India, the first for any digital printer.
Unique to TrafficJet is the use of “spot’ colors - engineered and premixed by Avery Dennison to the exacting day and nighttime color requirements of traffic sign specifications. Spot colors utilize the same proven pigments found in our screen print inks and overlay films, so performance is well established. This is very different from other printers which derive traffic sign colors by combining cyan, magenta, yellow, and black. Avery Dennison’s CMSpot6? ink package, consisting of six traffic spot colors and cyan and magenta, increases the color gamut by 37%, enabling sign fabricators to also produce custom color sign projects beyond standard traffic signs. Protecting the ink is OL-1000 Anti-Graffiti Film?which enables a variety of sign defacements (paint, markers, stickers, etc.) to be easily cleaned from the surface. The film also extends warranted sign life - 10 years on custom colors, 12 years for HIP, and 15 years for OmniCube? with traffic sign colors.
