The Process

Benefits

  • Easy clean – Anti-vandal/graffiti resistant properties
  • Anti-bacterial option
  • Outstanding print quality
  • Moisture resistant
  • 10 Year exterior warranty

Storage

When handling, it is highly recommended to handle panels one by one to prevent friction and scratches. For storage, it is compulsory to store the panels horizontally, on flat and stable pallets that have dimensions at least equal to the size of the panels.

Maintenance

The multiDURA panels are graffiti resistant, therefore, it is possible to clean the custom surface with many products such as water, white spirits, alcohol, or acetone using a dry, non-abrasive cloth (microfibre type). The customised image is included inside the panel material protecting it from a “new customisation”.

Transport

All packaging is tailor made according to the customised multiDURA panel dimensions.
When you receive your order, it is very important to open your packages to be able to notify the shipping carrier, in the event of damaged merchandise.

How to create a selective white

Illustrator CS6

  • Create a new colour with a direct tone (100%M 100%J) called White_Ink
  • Select the part where selective white is required
  • On Object/Path/Offset Path tab, reduce by -0.5 mm on a new tracing paper for a drawing smaller on the first plan
  • Then, apply to it the colour with the direct tone called White_Ink
  • On the Object option/Background Overprint (to prevent from cutting)
  • Save in .EPS

Photoshop CS6
