Gerber Scientific Products Launches New UV Inkjet Applications, Material & Substrate Website

SOUTH WINDSOR, CT - Gerber Scientific Products, a worldwide leader in sign making and specialty graphics systems headquartered in South Windsor, CT, announces the launch of a new Applications, Materials & Substrates web portal at This new portal will display the results of Gerberís time proven scientific material qualifications process on substrates for the digital printer market to help owners of the Solara ionô and Gerber CAT UVô determine which materials will result in optimal results for the various applications that Gerber UV inkjet customers utilize.

Gerberís materials qualification process has tested more than 170 materials for EDGEģ printer users during the last 15 years. It employs a series of tests in an environmental chamber and laboratory to simulate weather conditions and UV light, as well as testing materials with 45 chemicals such as gasoline, poisons and other substances. Gerberís material qualification process for the EDGE needs to be top-notch because EDGE owners work on everything from airplanes to clothing to danger signs. They are bringing that experience and technology to their inkjet customers to make it as painless as possible for them to expand their vertical market and help them get optimal results without wasting time going into testing mode to check new materials themselves.

The Gerber website does not rate materials, but provides raw results in the form of data sheets that report results on material profiling, abrasion resistance, chemical resistance, outdoor durability and adhesion resistance. Gerberís portal contains the results of testing on the most popular industry brands, and will continue to be updated with new results on a regular basis. Of course customers can use media not tested by Gerber, but the portal gives them a head start and saves them time and money along with the chore of doing their own testing.

In addition, the website provides application notes to educate customers in how to use materials for the best results. The material qualification sheets and the application notes provide Gerber customers and prospective customers with a robust new tool, available at the click of a mouse on to help them expand the variety of jobs they can offer and give them the peace of mind that they will achieve optimal results backed up by Gerberís experience and technology.

Jack Codron from FASTSIGNS Orlando says ďThe new applications, materials & substrate site that Gerber has developed shows the commitment they have to their customers and to their UV inkjet printers. I have spent numerous amounts of time and money testing material and this website eliminates that for me, so I can spend more time producing quality jobs that I know are going to stand up to the elements, time and make me money! I donít know of any other printer manufacturer that goes to these lengths to test material for their customers.Ē To find out more about Gerberís new Applications and Materials information, log onto or call Gerber directly at 800-222-7446.
