3P InkJet Textiles - 7/22/2008

3P's Fabrics Made a Trip out of this World

Bay Area Imaging LLC, a digital imaging shop near the Johnson Space Center in Houston produced four 
small banners for STS-120, a space shuttle mission to the ISS. The Italian Space Agency ordered the banners 
for the European-built Harmony module, which was delivered and permanently installed to ISS.  "NASA was 
very specific about the type of fabrics that were allowed on the shuttle and eventually approved Country Cotton 
FR, a 3P InkJet Textiles Corp product. It was very helpful for the approval process that 3P publishes detailed 
specification and test reports", Walter Bernard said, the owner of Bay Area Imaging LLC. 

3P InkJet Textiles Corp continually updates and strengthens their product quality and safety standards. 
Technical data sheets, guidelines and certificates have been made available for download (www.3p-inktextiles.
com). 

Country Cotton FR has passed the laws regarding flammability in the USA, even the strictest Californian flame 
retardant test. In Europe the media has obtained the high sophisticated certification M1 (non-flammable). 
Besides the 100% cotton fabric is environmentally friendly at the whole production process and also is 
biodegradable.   

"Our Country Cotton FR is flame retardant coated according to meet international standards for indoor advertising 
banners and the point of sales market. I did not expect that our products would fly through the orbit - an amazing 
evidence for our high product safety", Thomas Pötz, director of marketing and product development, stated. 

Country Cotton FR is definitely a legal fabric for use in public buildings such as airports, museums, exhibition 
centers and theaters. The cotton material produces perfect printing results with any large format printer using 
dye or pigmented aqueous ink. The micro-porous coating meets the needs of the most discerning customers. 
It ensures the demanded accuracy and consistency for clear, sharp and long-lasting images.
