LexJet 8 Mil Production Gloss Photo Paper


Quick Links: Product Highlights | Product Properties | Item Details

LexJet's next-generation 8 Mil Production Gloss Photo Paper features an instant-dry, microporous inkjet coating that is ideal for faster-turnaround, higher-volume photo printing on a variety of makes and models of aqueous inkjets. Because the prints dry so quickly, they resist smudges and fingerprints during handling and don’t require a lot of extra drying time before laminating. The latest version of 8 Mil Production Gloss Photo Paper features an improved white point for greater contrast and a wider color gamut. Plus, this paper can be used with either pressure-sensitive or low-heat thermal laminating films.

This photo paper provides the same great versatility as LexJet’s 8 Mil ImagePro photo paper at a price point that makes higher production runs more affordable.

The gloss finish provides a wider color gamut for sharper details.

LexJet 8 Mil Production Gloss Photo Paper can be used on all types of aqueous inkjet printers, whether they use dye or pigment inks or thermal or piezo printheads, and is engineered for the latest inksets, including Canon Lucia, Epson UltraChrome K3 HDR and HP Vivera.

Printer/Ink Compatibility

Compatible with all thermal and piezo inkjet printers using water-based dye and pigment-based inks.

Imaging Side

Material is packaged with printable side facing up. Printable surface can be identified by a slight tackiness.

Finishing/Post Processing

Pressure-sensitive vinyl laminates, like LexJet's GraphicsGuard with UV inhibitors, can be applied to increase the fade and abrasion resistance of the image. Before applying the laminate, allow the image to dry for 24 hours.

Light Fastness

The fading time of inkjet ink is a direct result of the inks that you choose to use and the environment where the print is displayed. Contact the ink manufacturer for light-fastness data.

Optimal Print Environment

70° F (21° C), 50% R.H

Optimal Service Environment

For printing: 60° - 80° F, 50% Relative Humidity.

Handling Recommendations

Due to the absorptive nature of the coating, you should avoid touching the coated surface. It's always recommended that cotton gloves be used when handling inkjet coated materials. Rolls of LexJet film are supplied with the coated side facing out.

Service Temp. Range

-40° - 176° F (-40° C to 80° C).

Software Settings

The coating on this product is engineered for better than 300% ink coverage. A photo luster, satin or semi-gloss setting is the recommended starting point. However, we recommend a custom ICC profile for optimal results. Please refer to www.lexjet.com for starting-point ICC profiles for some printers.
