LexJet Clear Positive Film

Quick Links: Product Highlights | Product Properties | Item Details

LexJet Clear Positive film is a 5-mil screen positive / negative film with a clear nano-porous coating compatible with aqueous pigmented black inkjet inks; designed for creating economical, high-resolution digital inkjet screen positives and negatives with rich, dense black images at a fraction of the cost of traditional screen positive films.

Product Highlights




4.0 Optical density* achieved with Epson Matte Black Ink on a T-series printer

Excellent light-blocking power

  • Wide exposure latitude
  • Holds fine line detail

Nano-porous clear ink receptive coating

Clear coating allows for use of aqueous pigmented black inkjet inks

  • Better fade resistance with multiple exposures
  • Higher light block capability

Clear coating and film base: <13% combined opacity

High light transmission

Faster exposure times

High ink absorption into coating

  • Better durability and scuff / scratch resistance when handling
  • Fast dry times
  • Increased productivity
  • Longer lasting screen positives and negatives

*Average optical density achieved using Epson matte-black ink on a T-series printer with a Harlequin RIP / 85% ink mask setting. Expect lower density, but higher scuff resistance if using Epson photo-black ink.
