Eliminate Static Charge

Prepare Your Substrate for High-quality UV Printing

Matthews Paint 6428SP Plastic Prep Cleaner allows for high-quality printing on UV-printable substrates by cleaning the surface and eliminating static charge on the substrate surface.

Matthews 6428SP Plastic Prep Cleaner allows for high-quality printing on PVC, textured PVC, acrylic, digital grade printable substrates, polycarbonate, melamine, and counter tops by cleaning the surface and eliminating static charge on the substrate surface. Static electricity on the substrate surface may affect print quality by diffusing the ink drops, pushing them away from the designated adhesion point directed by the print head. Static can also cause the symptom of “drop fracture or drop break off”, which creates hazy prints, un-sharp edges, having ink end up back on the carriage thereby causing additional and more frequent maintenance issues.
