One of Neschen’s specialist areas is the pattern coating of adhesives, functional varnishes and other high-quality functional coatings. These coatings are not just available in the form of the usual complete-surface applications, but can also be applied in various structures or patterns. By using this special type of coating, users may be able to reduce material or processing costs, cut down on working time and save resources. An example for Pattern Coating is illustrated here.

Last year an exhibition themed “CREDO – Christianization of Europe in the Middle Ages” was held at Diocesan Museum · Imperial Palace · Municipal Gallery in Paderborn, Germany from 26 July to 3 November. The exhibition depicted “How did Europe become Christian?” in great details. The accompanying text was provided on suspended banners made of Neschen’s “solvotex cotton premium light S”, a 100% cotton fabric with a premium inkjet coating.

The organisers wanted a white surface resembling concrete as a background to the texts. For this, the fabric banners were printed across their entire width. The printing job was carried out by RLS jakobsmeyer GmbH in Paderborn. The visible white tone was produced with the HP latex ink.

The printed Neschen media at the Diocesan Museum were suspended from the ceiling using Velcro. The cotton banners were cut along the sides, so to ensure they retained their shape an aluminium rail was inserted into the hemstitch to weigh them down.

The white fabric solvotex cotton premium light S consists of 100% cotton and weighs approximately 230 g/m², including premium inkjet coating. Competitively priced, it offers very good print quality and exceptional colour reproduction and brightness. solvotex cotton premium light S is suitable for (Eco-) solvent- and UV-curable as well as latex inks and can be printed with individual motives by means of the inkjet method. It is available in widths of 310 cm and 505 cm and a length of 50 m. A B1 test certificate according to DIN 4102-1 has been issued for indoor applications.
