    New products for vivid advertising messages

    From 14 to 17 May 2019 in Munich, Sihl is presenting innovative products in the fields of advertising, POS and dye sublimation which are suitable for numerous applications.

    SIHL materials for signage and signposts

    Self-adhesive films enable a variety of advertising applications in addition to the production of signage and signposts. This is ensured by base materials and adhesives which have been optimised for the application and which guarantee particularly easy application and removal of signs for seasonal shop window campaigns or shop fittings.

    For this, SIHL is presenting the two permanently adhesive vinyl films for waterbased inks SA Vinyl Plus 110 P-CA FR AQ matt 3635 and SA Vinyl Plus 110 P-CA FR AQ glossy 3585 for high quality labels and advertising materials in photographic quality which, as of today, are B1-certified. The two films can be bonded to flat and smooth surfaces and are thus ideally suited for the production of indoor signs and advertising media. These matt or glossy finish films are optimised for waterbased printing. Thanks to its water-resistant coating, it is also suitable for short-term outdoor applications when printed with pigment inks.

    In addition to these products, Sihl will also be focusing on its range of environmentally friendly, wet-strength papers for outdoor use at FESPA. One focus will be on the presentation of sustainable materials such as the TriSolv billboard papers for poster and advertising applications, which is FSC®-certified (Forest Stewardship Council).

    SIHL materials for lightboxes and window advertising

    Brilliant colours, excellent contrast and a high radiance are the basis for eye-catching lightbox and shop window advertising that attract everyone’s attention.

    Visitors can expect a new backlit material that offers excellent contrast and a high radiance for their designs. The Backlit Film Plus 220 Satin (3560) is very well suited for the creation of lightbox advertising with solvent, latex and UV ink systems. This media can be applied both indoor or outdoor, as well as in humid conditions.

    The new backlit film has numerous advantages. It allows use with both reflected and transmitted light sources, has a high contrast and produces rich black densities, as well as quick drying and having high ink absorption capacity. Its thickness of 220 μm permits installation in lightboxes without kinks and its good scratch resistance ensures robust printed images.

    SIHL materials for trade fairs, POS and events

    Modern trade fair stands, events and sales rooms thrive on the fact that effective advertising elements such as a point of sale or a trade fair display with vibrant and brilliant colours are effective in seconds. For this, Sihl offers an extensive range of exclusive print media with a fine finish.

    Sihl is presenting another new film in its roll-up range. The Roll-Up Film Plus 210 SB matt AQ (3597) was designed for the production of roll-up and display graphics with water-based and latex printers. The matt coating ensures excellent scratch resistance, as well as high print quality and brilliant colour reproduction. This polypropylene/polyester composite is tear resistant guaranteeing problem-free processing and thanks to the silverback offers high opacity, the thickness allows good flatness and it is suitable for all mid-term applications.

    SIHL 3D sublimation films for furniture, interior design, gadgets and advertising media

    In Munich, Sihl will present two prototypes of dye sublimation film for dye sublimation printing, that can then be transferred either to 3D furniture pieces for unique designs or to 3D objects for the gift sector, such as mobile phones.

    The two SubliColor Gadget and SubliColor Object films meet the most important criteria and requirements, such as high transfer rates, quick drying and flexible softening of the material, which enables the film to be applied perfectly to all corners of 3D objects.

    In hall A5, on stand J15 Sihl looks forward to all of its visitors!

  3. Global innovation for Photokina 2018: Photo Rag Metallic

    Global innovation for Photokina 2018: Photo Rag Metallic

    The FineArt industry will see a new paper that elevates FineArt printing to a new level. As the inventor and pioneer of genuine artist papers for inkjet printing, Hahnemühle fulfils the wish of many photographers to include a FineArt paper made of 100% cotton in the Digital FineArt Collection – this time with a metallic effect. The evenly shimmering metallic effect corresponds perfectly to the haptic of a real artists’ paper from the benchmarking Photo Rag®-family and makes Photo Rag® Metallic unique on the market.

    The premium inkjet coating ensures bright colours, deep blacks and perfect colour and detail reproduction. The sophisticated silver metallic effect underscores the image and makes motifs with metallic elements, reflections, ice and glass, architecture and landscape shots, as well as black and white photographs with high-contrast tones, shine. Depending on the incidence of light, the metallic effect glimmers stronger and gives the printed motifs a unique liveliness.

    Photographer Kitfox Valentín is delighted by the new Photo Rag® Metallic: “In my pictures, I dive deep into the world of finest details to accentuate and illuminate my compositions. With my picture of the series ‘Beatific / Caustic’, I attach great importance to the fact that the print exudes the iridescent mica or the rich shine of the composition. Photo Rag® Metallic radiates the bold, shimmering quality brilliantly. By pairing ‘Beatific / Caustic’ with the new Photo Rag® Metallic Paper, I was able to deliver high-quality FineArt prints to the world without compromising the image.”

    The 340 gsm paper is made of 100% cotton and has no optical brighteners. Of course, Photo Rag® Metallic, like all Hahnemühle papers in the Digital FineArt Collection, is free of acid and lignin and meets the highest requirements for aging resistance. With different roll and sheet sizes, photographers can choose from a wide range of options. Users get the best printing results with our Hahnemühle ICC profiles. The ICC profiles are available for download on our website.

  7. Hahnemühle collaborates with EVA

    Hahnemühle collaborates with EVA

    At Hahnemühle, gripping pictures are always in demand. And even more so when it comes to the design for product packaging. After all, the customer should understand at first glance what it’s all about: the perfect reproduction of great pictures. Seeking subjects for the ‘Hahnemühle Photo’ line, gave young photographers the opportunity to present their works. “With ‘EVA//Schule für Fotografie//Hamburg‘ we have found the perfect partner to collaborate with for our idea,” stated Hahnemühle product manager Andrea Sippel, and added: “With their fresh presence, the works visualise the paper’s credo.”

    Hahnemühle Photo was conceived as an everyday print product for a demanding clientele, that expects high quality at reasonable prices for their daily work. The picture series comprises a total of 10 works provided by eight students. Three of the pictures can be seen on the product boxes in different sizes. Nine of the works are used for a sample book that demonstrate all the different types of paper within the line. The types differ by their surface structure and the level of gloss. No matter if black and white or coloured, matt or gloss: every individual work has got its special effect and demonstrates the impressive reproduction performance of the papers. “Due to the consistently positive experiences, we regard this collaboration as the start of many more partnerships with colleges and young artists,” explained Sippel who is already looking forward to future projects.


    Hahnemühle Photo is a basic assortment of universally usable inkjet papers that are ideal for daily printing. This easy to use paper range display a very good quality and provide an attractive price point, making them an excellent choice for standard photos, poster prints and photo books. Cellulose based natural papers or resin coated substrate materials, combined with an optimised inkjet coating for photo application, ensure the best results for everyday printing.

    There are very few companies worldwide that can be proud of such a long company history like Hahnemühle’s. Founded back in 1584 as a paper mill in South Lower Saxony’s Solling uplands, Hahnemühle developed – strictly according to the spirit of its founding fathers – into a customer-oriented and innovative manufacturing facility.

    HP showcases power of digital décor printing

    Today at Heimtextil, HP Inc. unveiled a new collection of digitally printed interiors in designer curated rooms, each serving a specific purpose, as HP continues to grow digital décor printing opportunities for print service providers and creative possibilities for designers.

    HP also introduced HP Indigo Wallpaper, an HP Indigo 20000 Digital Press solution for wallpaper manufacturers to transition from analog production to a digital color printing process with gravure quality, and benefit from on-demand printing, faster time-to-market, and reduced waste.

    In collaboration with a team of designers led by Jennifer Castoldi, each concept room at HP’s Heimtextil booth tells a story that comes to life using HP Latex and HP Indigo décor printing technology. The designs tackle contemporary issues such as aging, sustainability, global warming and endangered species in interior settings including a living room, bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, and dentist’s ’s office.

    “With HP digital décor printing, interior design applications have amazing possibilities. Any idea of any size can come to life anywhere, on wallcoverings, printed flooring, textiles and furniture,” said Castoldi, CEO and Chief Creative Director, Trendease International. “This technology is a creativity enabler providing new opportunities to designers.”

    Growing décor opportunities with HP digital

    The HP Indigo Wallpaper launch is yet another example of the growing HP print technology portfolio for décor.

    For high-volume endless printing or a new design every meter, the new HP Indigo 20000 Digital Press Wallpaper solution is capable of producing endless printing at 1515 sq.m. per hour with a 74 cm width.

    The industry-proven HP Indigo 20000 is digitally programmed for repeat, frameless printing, making it ideal for repeated pattern wallpaper applications and more. Wallpapers for the press are available to HP customers through suppliers such as Felix Schoeller and Van Merksteijn.

    HP also recently announced a new range of durable textiles certified for HP Latex printers to produce soft signage and décor applications, combining durability and outstanding print quality with the benefits of water-based HP Latex technology. The new textiles from select media vendors1 expand possibilities for durable HP Latex printing for soft signage and also enable new décor applications, including curtains and blinds, cushions, lampshades, and bags, on materials made from 100% cotton, cotton linen or polyester. Some of the new textiles can also achieve washability with a heating process after printing.

    HP Latex water-based inks now also received ECO PASSPORT Certification from Oeko-Tex®, for textile applications. Key benefits of Latex printing technology are print quality and sustainability benefits.

    “The environmental strengths of Latex are unbeatable, making it the technology the choice of hospitals and schools,” said Terry Raghunath, Business Development Manager for HP printed decorative applications. “With our Latex water-based technology, there is no odor during or post-production. Prints are bright and detailed from material to material, printers can deliver a wide range of applications and formats.”

  10. Creating a new mood in the hospital with innovative wall design

    Creating a new mood in the hospital with innovative wall design

    By 2025 the renovation and expansion of the Inselspital (main hospital) in Bern will be completed. An important building block in the project was to redesign the main entrance. With SIHL EASY2WALL the complete solution for innovative wall designs, Sihl Direct have made a significant contribution to the friendly atmosphere created for the entrance. The new anti-bacterial coated glass textile – Glass Textile design2wall HealthClean 295 matt 2525 was used. The product is optimal for application areas with the highest demands on durability and cleaning, exceeding the product requirements of the project.

    The hospital invested in a new entrance hall – with over 5000 people entering and exiting daily, this is the most heavily used part of the entire building complex. The aim of the new design was to make the orientation easy and comfortable movement for the visitors. An escalator and a lift lead visitors from the ground level entrance into the first floor of the main building. Floors, walls and ceilings convey an atmosphere that does not scream out „hospital”. The wall design above the reception area is a special highlight. The focus was to achieve an atmosphere that gives both patients and visitors alike a positive first impression. The pattern is simple and light, almost weightless with its fine grey tones. The design was created by designer Susanne Dubs in collaboration with the architect agency Bauzeit Architekten, who are responsible for the entire Hospital project.

    The one stop solution for flexible wall design

    For the technical application, everything from planning through printing to the actual application on the wall, the project team left in the expert hands of SIHL EASY2WALL. The One-Stop-Shop-solution allows designers full creative freedom, gives the architects comprehensive support during planning and implementation, as well as winning the opinions of the building constructors/owners with a wall design that is visually, haptically and technically perfect.

    High quality wallpaper for the clinical section

    “Already before the creation of the design the specialists from SIHL EASY2WALL, ensured the realisation” says project manager Anette Wabner, delighted with the competent support. They constantly monitored and optimised the precise transmission, contour detail and colour tones. Using the environmentally-friendly sublimation printing process the pattern was then sublimated to the wallpaper resulting in a true reproduction of colours.

    Especially developed for use in the clinical sector, the fibreglass textile really is so high that it provides a reinforcement of the surface – cracks in the walls are not just covered but they can be reinforced to prevent further cracking. Thanks to the high tear resistance, no additional treatment is needed to remove the wallpaper drops from the walls in one piece, provided that the wallpaper was applied in accordance with the Sihl recommendations.

    Dye sublimation inks for indestructible prints

    Not only can Glass Textile design2wall HealthClean 295 matt 2525 be cleaned using conventional cleaning detergents, it is also resistant against most alcoholic and disinfecting agents too. Cleaning using ethanol is even possible, without dissolving the inks or destroying the printed image. Dye sublimation achieves the best possible fixation of inks. Together with a coating developed to receive these inks, whereby focus was laid heavily on the resistant to various influences, is a virtually indestructible print achieved. Neither scratching nor impact with hard objects can destroy the printed image. Even tests with sandpaper leave a barely visible effect on the surface.
