Gerber Launches Applications Website

Sign making and specialty graphics systems maker Gerber Scientific Products, South Windsor, Conn., announces the launch of a new Applications, Materials & Substrates web portal at

This new portal will display the results of Gerber’s material qualifications process on substrates for the digital printer market to help owners of the Solara ion and Gerber CAT UV printers determine which materials will result in optimal results for the various applications that Gerber UV inkjet customers utilize.

The website does not rate materials, but provides raw information in the form of data sheets that report results on material profiling, abrasion resistance, chemical resistance, outdoor durability and adhesion resistance.

Testing results for the most popular industry brands are available, and will continue to be updated with new results on a regular basis. In addition, the website provides application notes to educate customers in how to use materials for the best results. For more information visit or call 800-222-7446.
