  2. 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.

    HP expands soft signage and decor printing for HP Latex printers

    HP Inc. announced a new range of durable textiles certified for HP Latex printers to produce soft signage and decor applications, combining durability and outstanding print quality with the benefits of water-based HP Latex technology.

    The new textiles from selected media vendors expand possibilities for durable HP Latex printing for soft signage applications, including backlit and frontlit banners, blockouts and backdrops and point of purchase displays, with higher durability. These textiles also enable new home decor applications such as curtains and blinds, cushions, lampshades and bags on materials made from 100% cotton, cotton linen or polyester. Some of the new textiles also achieve washability with a heating process after printing.

    “We continue to expand on HP’s promise to deliver new possibilities for HP Latex printers. New durable textiles for soft signage and décor open new growth opportunities with HP Latex water-based technology,” said Joan Pérez Pericot, General Manager, HP Large Format Graphics Business, HP Inc. “Unlike solvent-based printers, HP Latex technology can print on traditional signage substrates such as banners and vinyls, in addition to textiles, including uncoated substrates.”

  4. Brand new squeezable inkjet films from Sihl

    Brand new squeezable inkjet films from Sihl

    Optimised for aqueous inkjet print, conformable and easy to process Sihl presents a new film to the range SIHL FACESTOCK. The PICOFILM WS is a white polyolefin film with a special VIP (Variable Information Printing) top coating for aqueous inkjet printing. Thanks to its squeezability and deformability, it is ideal for the labelling of various PE containers and bottles.

    Following last years’ successful introduction of the product range based on the 60 µm BOPP films for printing with aqueous inkjet inks, the white squeezable film (PICOFILM WS) is the second brand-new product for FACESTOCK assortment.

    The polyolefin-mix film, developed especially for aqueous inkjet printing, opens many new possibilities for application with aqueous printers using either pigment or dye inks. It is equipped with an established VIP coating, which Sihl customers have already come to know and treasure. The reverse of the film is not coated. The top material adapts well to the substrate onto which it is applied and resists multiply use.

    Four product varieties available

    Sihl offers PICOFILM WS in 4 variations:

    • 7079 – PICOFILM WS-85 glossy IHG1
    • 7094 – PICOFILM WS-85 satin IG1
    • 7095 – PICOFILM WS-75 matt IM1
    • 7096 – PICOFILM WS-75 matt XM1

    The different surface finishes enable the perfect solution for every application. In addition, this film is not only perfect for digital printing but is also easy for all label producers to process, as good as self-adhesive squeezable or MDO (Machine Direction Oriented) standard products.

    Thanks to the good balance between suppleness and strength, the squeezable material can be used in many areas, where until now only PE facestock films could be used.

    Extremely resistant variations for outdoor application

    The product variant PICOFILM WS-75 matt XM1 is offered with a special coating. “XM1”, in combination with Epson C3500, Kyaro D, Primera Lx2000e and Epson 7500G printers, achieves the BS5609 Section 3, making it predestined for extreme outdoor use. It is both, water- and chemical- resistant as well as being abrasion resistant. The film is ideal for self-adhesive labels for the labelling of oil or chemical drums.

    Comprehensive information about the FACESTOCK portfolio can be found at www.sihl-facestock.com. The ‘Product Finder‘ helps an easy and quick find of the correct product, and all personal contacts can be found there too.

  5. Print, Protect, Authenticate your artwork!

    Print, Protect, Authenticate your artwork!

    What makes a printed artwork unique? The exclusive look and feel of genuine fine art paper. High-quality artist papers for archival inkjet printing are papers with noticeable attributes, and beautiful structures. The paper becomes a part of the artwork; because a well-chosen fine art paper can really accentuate a work of art. At the end of a creative process, the printing and presentation of a photograph or reproduction as a luxury print is something to experience – whether in a frame on the wall at home, in an album, as a portfolio for commissioning, sales to collectors or on show at a gallery – every picture deserves the best presentation including protection and authentication.

    Three things that will make your fine art print flawless:

    1. Age-resistant Hahnemühle Inkjet Paper,
    2. Hahnemühle Protective Spray
    3. A Hahnemühle Certificate of Authenticity with Holograms.

    First: Print!
    Print only with certified, archival, pigmented inks on the highest quality paper! All Hahnemühle FineArt papers are strictly tested for their aging resistance, and last for generations. For the perfect combination of paper and inks, Hahnemühle provides free ICC printing profiles for calibrated and reproducible printing at any time. Special questions regarding printer settings and ink/paper combinations can be answered by our Hahnemühle Technical Support Team.

    Second: Protect!
    Your artwork needs proper protection against scratches and environmental influences. Hahnemühle’s Protective Spray is an aerosol spray that lays like a fine film on the paper, without changing the paper structure. It fixes colours of pigment and dye inks and prevents gradual colour fading. The intensity and high brilliance of the colours stay permanently. The coating increases the abrasion resistance of Fine Art papers, so the risk of fingerprint marks and scratches are reduced. The formulation is fast drying and yellowing of the print (due to the spray) is not possible.

    Third: Authenticate!
    You´d like to highlight the value of your pictures to gallery owners and collectors? Than have a try with Hahnemühle´s Certificate of Authenticity. Each certificate consists of genuine mould-made paper and two identical numbered holograms. Apply one on the back of your artwork, the other to the customised Certificate of Authenticity.

    For artist and curator Jörg Karrenbauer, fine art printing is a perfect triangle: “My conceptual photography is printed on either one of my favourite papers, the archival FineArt Baryta or FineArt Pearl. For album or portfolio box presentations I protect the prints with Protective Spray. My individually designed Certificates of Authenticity work together with my personal embossing, signifying the value of my work to collectors, galleries or museums.”

    Each certified work of art can be registered with the corresponding certificate number on www.myartregistry.com.

    About Hahnemühle

    Many companies claim to be steeped in tradition. But finding a company that is more entitled than us – the paper manufacturer Hahnemühle, founded back in 1584 in Dassel, Germany – to boast this embodiment of reliability, experience and quality will be extremely difficult.

    What initially began with handmade writing paper later was complemented by art paper and more recently, the papers for the digital FineArt inkjet print that have been invented by us. Meanwhile, our traditional artist papers still are manufactured according to old recipes from high-quality cellulose and pure spring water. Our paper technologists also are reliable partners for artists, technicians and scientists when it comes to new applications in the artist market and the industry area.

    We manufacture exactly according to the requirements of our customers while developing products for new market segments at the same time. Our motto always has been ‘Quality instead of Quantity’. With an annual production of just 3,000 tonnes, we rather regard ourselves as manufacture than a factory.  Hahnemühle today employs approximately 180 people worldwide and has subsidiaries in the UK, France, the USA and China. The production, however, has taken place for more than 430 years at the same location – at the highest quality level with innovation spirit and strong tradition.
