Will Polyart run on my copier?2020-09-25T08:02:47-04:00

Probably not. Most copiers’ fuser rolls are too hot. When Polyart gets too hot, it will shrink. (However, Xerox does have a new low-temperature copier that will probably work.)

Why is Polyart clay-coated?2020-09-25T08:04:24-04:00

Clay coating eliminates the two biggest problems of plastic sheets: static and slow drying. Polyart has no static and provides a smooth, uniform surface that speeds drying.

None. Polyart contains no artificial whiteners or brighteners, which cause other plastics to become brittle and break in the sun. Polyart holds up very well outdoors in sunlight but we recommend the use of lightfast inks.
