MAGIC® GFIOP140SIJ & GFIOP212SIJ are one-side-coated papers designed to meet the demands of high production piezo printing systems. These latex-saturated, wet strength papers feature a smooth surface which offers exceptional print fidelity with a distinctive lustre finish. Strength, flexibility and durability are hallmark traits of GFIOP papers. They resist cracking when folded, and film lamination is not required for most intended applications. Products pass Class A flame spread tests (ASTM E-84-97a) as manufactured.

PRINTING GUIDELINES
Printer Compatibility:
GFIOP140SIJ & GFIOP212SIJ papers can be used on most solvent ink jet printing systems such as: Mimaki JV3, Mutoh Toucan, DGI, etc.

Printer Settings:
Optimized print settings will vary from printer manufacturer. Recommended ink saturation level is between 300-325%. Recommended heater settings of 140°F for both pre and printer heaters are recommended. These settings have been found to be a good starting point.


FINISHING RECOMMENDATIONS
Surface Protection:
For indoor and outdoor applications, GFIOP140SIJ & GFIOP212SIJ will hold up for 3-6 months without lamination. It is recommended to overlaminate if graphic will be exosed to severe conditions or where longer life is needed. Pressure-sensitive overlaminates are recommended for outdoor graphics. Magic® DMFTP Fluorex™ Transfer Protection or liquid laminates can be used for wallcovering applications. This added protection is needed where routine cleaning is common.

Indoor/ Outdoor Promotional Signage:
Handles well in all types of posting situations. Standard starch-based pastes may be used. Also recommended is Shur-Stik Ultra Billboard Adhesive Product #8750.

Decorative Wallcovering/Murals:
GFIOP140SIJ and GFIOP212SIJ products can be pasted and hung just like standard wallcovering materials. Standard wallcovering pastes provide adequate adhesion and allow for easier stripping when the wallcovering is to be removed or replaced. Refer to the ink jet wallcovering technical bulletin for specific hanging and pasting instructions.
