Kodak debuted Kodalux technology, a new class of light-control materials that can be coated directly on fabrics for use in the management of light. Precision Fabrics Group is offering the first prepared-for-print blackout fabric incorporating Kodalux light-control technology for wide-format digital print applications. The PFP fabric with Kodalux technology can be supplied in widths of up to 125 inches and can be printed by either direct or indirect sublimation or inkjet technologies with superior fidelity and no bleed through.

Kodalux light-control technology eliminates the carbon layer common in current blackout technologies, replacing it with a simpler solution for delivering various degrees of light-blocking performance. Kodalux Particles are patented microparticles engineered for light management and when coated directly onto fabrics, Kodalux fabric coating delivers 100 percent blackout with zero pinhole anomalies.

In addition to PFP fabrics for exhibition signage, Kodalux fabric coating can be coated on roller shades and high-grade decorative fabrics.
