Neschen®, Elkridge, Md., a has an improved PVC coated media for billboards, backdrops, awnings, banners, trade show exhibits, and double-sided graphics applications. SolvoTex™ PVC Standard Blockout is a 100 percent polyester media with a PVC coating on both sides, and a true 100 percent opaque block-out liner to allow double-sided printing with no shadows, wash-out or bleed-through.
