Recently, European deputies witnessed a brilliant example of textile digital printing possibilities during ‘Textiles: Material for the Future’ exhibition. Evolon, the innovative, non- PVC printing substrate manufactured by Francebased Freudenberg Evolon, was recently selected by the organisers of the exhibition, to maximise the visual impact of the four-day event at the European Parliament.
In tune with the spirit of the exhibition, Evolon was used to demonstrate innovation and environment-friendliness in the area of digital printing onto textile substrates. With a scene construction built by design company Carlin, the exhibition ‘guided’ Parliament members from a meeting room to the institution’s hemicycle debating chamber. The 60m2 Evolon graphic comprised individual panels measuring up to 2.5m high x 2m wide, which were linked together to form various angles in order to maximise visual appeal. Optimized for digital printing, the flameretardant certified Evolon was printed by French wide-format textile digital printer, Creajet.
With its non-fraying edges and ability to be hung or attached with plain double-sided tape, Evolon eliminates the need for stapling, which made it very easy for the stand contractors to work with. As a result, joins were neat, wrinkle-free and clean.
