21 MIL, 440GSM GLOSS/SATIN POLY-COTTON INKJET CANVAS. OBA-FREE, BRIGHT WHITE
Crystalline is a 440gsm aqueous inkjet canvas that comes pre-made in both gloss and satin finishes. This high performance inkjet canvas should be used with photo black ink and will deliver industry-leading Dmax and color gamut a step above every other glossy or matte inkjet canvas available today. It is ideal for high-end fine art and photography reproduction.
A NEW PLATEAU IN DMAX & COLOR GAMUT
Yep, we did it again. First it was Chromata White (2005), then it was Lyve (2009). Now its Crystalline (2011). You just won't achieve a deeper black or wider color gamut on any other canvas.
OBA-FREE, YET STILL BRIGHT WHITE
Called "Chromata White", this breakthrough technology has set Breathing Color apart for years. Normally, OBA-Free products have a yellowish surface. Our "Chromata White" technology, which we released in 2005, forever changed this by delivering OBA-Free with the desired bright white surface. This answered the needs of our customers to maximize the longevity of their prints while maintaining the most popular and desired look. Crystalline is the only OBA-Free bright white glossy canvas ever developed.
"Chromata White" gives the end-user the most stable platform on which to print photographs and fine art giclees without the metamerism issues or color shift issues inherent on other canvases. Optical Brighteners compromise the attainment of true color, they complicate profiling accuracy, and they inevitably deteriorate and yellow over time.

NO VARNISH REQUIRED
This makes it extremely attractive to printmakers who are new to printing canvas, and especially to those who prefer to avoid the labor-intensive step of varnishing their canvas prints.
Please note: If you still want to use varnish with 17M, it must be applied using an HVLP spray system.
NO CRACKING OR TEARING WHEN STRETCHING
Crystalline will not crack or tear when stretched, with or without a coat of varnish.

INCREDIBLE SCUFF RESISTANCE
Even without print varnish, Crystalline prints are highly resistant to scuffing and/or abrasion.
Lack of water-resistance is a commonly known problem with currently available glossy canvas options. Not anymore. Crystalline delivers an increased level of water-resistance.
COLOR CONSISTENCY UNDER DIFFERENT LIGHTING CONDITIONS
Ever noticed how a print can look identical under one light source, yet show remarkable differences in color when viewed under a different light source? This problem is referred to as "metamerism". When OBA's are used in inkjet media, the metamerism problem exacerbates exponentially. Because this product is manufactured OBA-free, you are assured that your prints will look consistent under different lighting conditions.
EASE OF USE
One of the most compelling aspects of Crystalline is its ease of use. Since they require no varnish, Crystalline prints are immediately ready to stretch or mount. With our EasyWrappe and EasyWrappe Pro do-it-yourself gallery wrap system, canvas printing just can't get any easier.
