Neschen Gets Certification as Textile Media Supplier/Partner for CeeLite
January 8, 2008, Elkridge, MD - Neschen Americas is pleased to announce that it has entered an agreement
with CeeLite, LLC, to be a certified supplier of textile printing media for use with CeeLite Light Emitting Capacitor
(LEC) technology. Neschen Americas, manufacturer of renowned Neschen® brand textile media for digital
printing applications, and CeeLite, LLC, the world’s first commercial manufacturer of LEC technology, have
joined forces to present the sign and display marketplace with a range of state-of-the-art lighted graphics solutions.
CeeLite LEC panels are ultra-thin. They are constructed with phosphors, PET/ITO, dielectrics and pigments as
a capacitor, and encapsulated in flexible, semi-rigid or rigid materials. They can be used to turn virtually any
surface into a light source, providing flawless white illumination with very low power consumption and no heat.
Special encapsulating technology allows the panels to be used in both indoor and outdoor applications.
Neschen Americas has acquired CeeLite certification for select materials from its Neschen® SolvoTex™ line of
textile media. These include: SolvoTex Artist Premium Heavy S, SolvoTex Samba Light Box, and SolvoTex PES
"When graphics printed on these textiles are placed on a CeeLite LEC panel, they exhibit bold, rich tones,
even color saturation, and optimum brightness. These textiles are also highly durable to match the broad range
of indoor and outdoor applications that CeeLite LEC panels can address," explains Angela Mohni, VP of
Marketing at Neschen Americas.
