Sihl Digital Imaging - 8/11/2009

Sihl Introduces New Vision Clear Films

Sihl LLC, a global leader in the manufacturing and distribution of coated papers, films and specialty media for 
digital imaging technologies, announces the VisionTM line of clear films for aqueous inkjet printers. The line 
includes four new clear films, 3161, 3162, 3163 and 3164; all 4 mil polyester clear films designed for low ink load 
overlays, color keys, window and door graphics, and other applications where optical clarity is essential.

Sihl VisionTM Clear Film  3161 (4mil)
Sihl 3161 is an inkjet clear film without a side stripe. 3161 starts with a clear 4 mil polyester base. The addition of 
an extremely clear universal dye and pigment ink compatible topcoat provides excellent print performance and 
maintains optical clarity. 3161, is designed for low ink load - overlays, color keys, window graphics, and other 
clear film applications. Sihl 3161 is not compatible with Hewlett-Packard series printers due to the edge sensing 
technology imbedded in those printers. For a Sihl clear film compatible with Hewlett Packard printers see Sihl 
3162 with Side Stripe.
Available in the following sizes: 17", 24", 36" and 44" x 100 foot rolls.

Sihl VisionTM Clear Film with Side Stripe - 3162 (4mil)
Sihl 3162 is the same as 3161 inkjet clear film but with a removable side stripe for printers that sense the media 
edge during loading, such as Hewlett-Packard Design Jet 5000, 5500 and Z-series printers.
Available in the following sizes: 24", 36", 42", 50" and 54" x 100 foot rolls.

Sihl VisionTM Absolute Clear Film - 3163 (4mil)
Sihl 3163 is an optically clear 4 mil polyester film designed for high end color keys to check registration, trapping, 
and color breaks, identify density concerns and confirm process and spot color setup. Sihl 3163 features a 
proprietary clear coating that enables extremely fast drytimes and high inkload capacity of both dye and pigment 
inkjet inks without sacrificing clarity.
Available in most common roll sizes.

Sihl VisionTM Clear Film with Interleaf - 3164 (4mil)
Sihl 3164 is the same as 3161 inkjet clear film but with an acid free interleaf paper wound into the roll. The 
interleaf provides extra protection against scratching while traveling through the printer and provides a high 
contrast white backing to help evaluate prints as they are printing. The interleaf will also allow for universal printer 
compatibility including printers that utilize edge sensing devices.
Available in most common roll sizes.
