MagScience by Digital Magnetics is thinner, lighter but stronger. This enables resource-efficient solutions without compromising on product quality or printing. Via our central European supply chain and multiple European sales companies, we deliver the inkjet printable magnetic solutions of tomorrow.
What is weight efficieny?
The environmental footprint of any material purchase is closely tied to the total quantity and weight purchased.
Consider, for instance, using a traditional Magnetic PVC Film 500 micron, of 1490 grams per square meter, with a magnetic force of 18-21 g/cm2 to create a magnetic advertisement.
When using the next generation of magnetic films, for instance, MagScience Super 350 micron, of 895 grams per square meter, with a magnetic force of 20-24 g/cm2 you allow yourself to achieve the same results. This approach in reducing carbon footprint is what we call “weight efficiency”.
By enhancing the weight efficiency of your magnetic films, you effectively reduce the volume of material needed. This ensures that every gram of carbon expended yields significantly greater results. This will have its benefits throughout the entire product life-cycle and will result in a reduced carbon footprint.
Does buying MagScience with a lower basis weight lead to less climate impact and a reduced carbon footprint?
The short answer is yes.
You can buy fewer tonnes of printable magnets without losing the required magnetic force for your projects.
Should I always use a magnetic film with the lowest thickness and weight?
Not always. It is crucial to carefully evaluate what you are printing and what the desired end-product will be to make the intended impact.
While many PSP's and Sign makers have traditionally believe that a thicker magnetic film yield a superior and stronger final-end product, we can confirm that this is a misconception.
If you decide that you need a strong magnetic film for your final end-product, you do not need to use a very thick magnetic like Magnetic PVC Film 850 micron any longer.
Instead consider using a lighter, thinner MagScience magnetic films, capable of delivering equivalent or even superior magnetic force, while weighing less and being more flexible, offering operational advantages.
