This flexible polypropylene media is compatible with aqueous and latex printers providing great color saturation and a bright white base. It has tremen- dous dimensional stability and no stretch properties as found in other porous medias. Polypropylene is a more environmentally responsible prod- uct when compared to other Polyvinylchloride (PVC) medias. Print-Smart Ecoflex 8-mil PolyPro is water resistant and flex- ible, yet stays flat for applications such as: indoor or outdoor signs and displays, retractable banner stands, posters, event graphics, etc. For more information, visit Rigid Latex Printing Technology HP Inc., Alpheretta, Georgia, announces the HP Latex R Series, the first, true hybrid latex tech- nology that merges HP's flexible Latex printing capabilities into rigid printing.

For more information, visit Spike-Free Bird-Repelling Solution Bird Barrier Inc., Carson, California, intro- duces Optical Gel, an effective solution that solves the core nesting issues and unsightly droppings found on outdoor signage. This product uses UV-reflective technology to trigger the fire fear response in birds. The multi-sensory design is comprised primarily of natural beeswax. This is a carrier for additional deterrent components like citronella, which disguises bird pheromones. The sticky nature of the gel is also a touch- deterrent, affecting flight if it gets on feathers. Optical Gel can be added to sig- nage by simply gluing the small disks using removable adhe- sive. This low-cost, low-profile solution is perfect for the sign industry.
