    I can't find the ICC profile I need for my HP Latex 310, Flexi v12 for the Ultraflex DSS 12oz. Blockout double sided banner. Ultraflex's website doesnt have it, and I can't find it on my printer panel>online profiles.

    Does anyone know where I can find it? Or a comparable different brand that I can copy? Just trying to be safe. don't want to melt anything...

    Thanks :)

    I found the best profile for banners on the HP 300 series is the generic profile that is already on the printer.

    Its called
    Generic PVC banner_10p_CMYKcm_100.icc

    You should be able to run the same profile as a standard front lit banner, whatever you use. It would be best if you have the tools to create your own profile. One thing I love about the 560....If I get something new in it takes less than an hour to copy an existing profile, calibrate the material, and create a whole new profile.

    I ended up tuning another smooth banner when I had to run this stuff. I forget which one.

    I will warn you, our 360 hated this stuff, head strikes were very common.

    the 12oz DSS, or really any of the lighter blockouts from ultra flex are a pain to run thru hps. they are just not a fan of the heat it seems. i would try going lower heat higher passes and dwell time.
