You Asked, We Listened. What You Really Want to Know About LINTEC Window Films.

Window films are a high-quality, beneficial, simple, yet dramatic way to transform any space. As the digital printing industry becomes more environmentally conscious, the LINTEC eco-friendly window films offer solutions never before seen in our industry.

So, you’re considering adding a WOW factor to a space, but you aren’t sure which product to try or which one is the best solution for your needs. At LexJet, we know you have many questions, so we’ve answered 10 of the most popular consumer questions about window films to help guide your decision.

If the film is used for privacy, does light still come through?

One of the great features of the LINTEC recycled window films is that they are optically clear and offer maximum clarity. These window films reduce the transparency of glass but still allow sunlight, creating a natural and comfortable environment. They can be designed to look any way you like, so you can apply a frosting effect to your graphic to create the level of privacy you desire.

Will the film fade over time if exposed to sunlight?

Any fading depends on the environment. If you apply the film where there will be constant sunlight in a generally hot climate, then the film will see a lot more UV light than other locations, which will start to fade over time. For these locations, you may want to consider a removable film that you can change when you need to refresh the graphics.

Is the removable film easy to remove if I want a change the design?

The films are removable, and how easily may depend on the glass the film was adhered to. You should not add the film to unstable or old glass that is pitted, as this can make removal difficult.

How long do the films last?

When installed under the recommended conditions, the window graphics will be incredibly durable and long-lasting. These eco-friendly films made using recycled materials have the same quality and longevity as traditional films. With UV blocking, the films have a five-year warranty mounted indoors, in virtually any condition, while standard films have a warranty of one year, depending on the environment.

Can I add the film to any glass?

For the best long-lasting results, it is recommended that the films be installed on clean, stable glass that is not too old and cracked or pitted and that you follow the installation guidelines.

Which window film should I buy?

There are several factors to consider when choosing a window film. Are you looking for a short-term (up to one year) or long-term (up to five years) solution? How large of a window or space are you planning to cover? Will you be installing the window film yourself or hiring professional installers? Whatever you choose, we offer various solutions ideal for displays in high-traffic areas that may be susceptible to physical contact. To determine the best film for your needs, reach out to us at 800-4-LexJet and we’ll work with you to find the right solution.

Installation is easy, but just how easy depends on your comfort level. If you’re a DIYer, most projects will be pretty simple when planned accordingly. With large surfaces, it is recommended that you hire professional installers for an easier installation process. Permanent adhesives can be removed by qualified installers.

Here are some supplies LINTEC recommends for installation:

  • Application solution (in spray container, properly mixed)
  • Squeegee
  • Edge guide tool
  • Trimming knife
  • Pressure-sensitive tape
  • Razor scraper
  • Paper towel (a lint-free towel is best)

Can the window films get scratched?

The films are great for high-traffic areas and are scratch-resistant. They are an excellent solution for high-traffic office spaces, schools, or any location that needs durable graphics.

How are the LINTEC films eco-friendly?

These high-quality films are optically clear, made from 80% recycled PET materials, manufactured with 40% less energy, and offer excellent clarity, as well as dimensional stability. The products offer the same crystal clarity as traditional PET films made from new plastics, but with the bonus of being environmentally conscious.

What sizes do you have available?

We currently offer the following films in multiple sizes:

LINTEC 2 Mil Recycled Removable Window Film – 54 in. x 150 ft.

LINTEC 2 Mil Recycled Removable Window Film – 61 in. x 150 ft.

LINTEC 2 Mil Recycled Permanent Window Film – 54 in. x 150 ft.

Transform a Campus From Drab to Fab with Wall Graphics

Educational institutions offer many opportunities for print providers and can also be challenging environments that require high-performing signage. Now is the time to take advantage of those opportunities and prepare for those high demands as the school year is in full swing.

This matte white semi-rigid vinyl is designed with an ultra-removable adhesive you can simply peel off when schools need to update their signage. It’s a great product to personalize classrooms with colorful custom wall poster decals and stickers to keep students engaged.

Some areas around campus may require a longer-lasting, permanent solution like Mactac IMAGin wallNOODLE Matte White Permanent Vinyl, a 6.0-mil matte white, semi-rigid vinyl perfect for indoor wall posters, murals, and graphics on smooth, flat drywall surfaces. Long gone are the days of dreary and dull school cafeterias. Now the only limit to transforming a space is your imagination.

Creative Solutions to Hit the Ground Running

What started as yellow bricks to a city of emeralds, now comes in all colors of the rainbow. Step into floor graphics. This signage can direct consumers right in the lap of your customers and away from their competition. The first step is choosing the right media.

One ideal product for trade show and event floors is LexJet Simple Indoor FloorAd, a vinyl designed for temporary floor decals and point-of-purchase ads. This vinyl is intended for indoor surfaces, with removable adhesive that bonds well to commercial tile, sealed concrete, and linoleum. Another benefit — it is removable for up to six months and is compatible with solvent, latex, and UV curable printers.

How to install floor and carpet graphics

LexJet Floor Velvet Laminate is UL certified for slip resistance for floor surfaces. Other applications beyond floor graphics include display graphics, counter mats, and more.

Capture an Audience with Custom Printed Fabrics

Digitally printed fabrics are part of a rapidly growing trend in the wide-format printing world. With printed fabric, your customers can showcase their products in a more modern and tactile way.

A great benefit for print shops producing trade show graphics is that fabric can be printed in short runs, allowing you to reach more customers in less time, which leads to higher profits, and less waste. Another perk of printed fabrics is portability and storage. When your customers transport their signage to a trade show location, they can easily fold or ship the fabric, saving more on shipping costs than other materials that require more packaging.

The LexJet line of Poly Select fabrics is a wonderful addition for your customers that expect modern and beautiful event signage. LexJet Poly Select is available in LexJet Poly Select Light, LexJet Poly Select Medium, and LexJet Poly Select Heavy. The Poly Select fabrics offer a pleasing glare-reduced texture with a tight weave and produce bright and vivid graphics. The 100% polyester fabric provides lay-flat properties and is water-resistant for aqueous and latex printers.

LexJet Poly Select SUV is another option with the same great features, available in LexJet Poly Select Light  SUV and LexJet Poly Select Heavy SUV weights for solvent, latex, eco-solvent, and UV curable printers. These bright-white fabrics produce vivid colors and have a satin finish.

Another great SUV option is the Ultraflex VorTex™ Bolero S225, a 6.5 oz. woven polyester fabric that also features bright-white fabric that enriches colors, produces eye-catching images, and is fire-resistant.

The VorTex™ Bolero S225 may be used for a wide range of applications including light boxes, POP displays, backlit displays/frames, indoor banner displays, and roll-up displays. The material is compatible with solvent, latex, eco-solvent, and UV curable printers.

Printed fabrics drape beautifully, adding elegance to trade show table skirts and backdrops, and can also be used as POP displays and banners to add a modern flair to your customers’ booths and exhibits.
