SEG – Silicone Edge Graphics
A revolutionary finishing technique for all extrusion based display systems.
What is SEG (Silicone Edge Graphics)?
Silicone edge graphics (often called SEGs) are a high-resolution dye-sublimated fabric graphic finished with a thin silicone strip. The silicone strip is sewn directly to the edge of the graphic, and the strip is then inserted into a frame with a recessed groove. The size of the
Show labor costs are drastically decreased with
What are the benefits of SEG graphics?
While SEGs also provide more graphic for your buck, the benefits extend beyond that: there is a growing list of fabric options for these displays that are created from mostly recycled materials, providing a greener option for exhibitors.
Why do customers love SEG Graphics?
Customers of late have been relying on SEG graphics to display the most cutting edge, clean look in the industry while providing the user with a comfortable setup. The graphics are tight as a drum when installed, creating a vivid and seamless look from side to side. The corners are neatly finished with no bunching of the material; nearby there are concealed pull tabs to assist in removing the graphic. While the SEG is easy to install, it's even easier to break it down by simply pulling the silicone out of the frame; it will fall out effortlessly and without stretching the graphic, but not so fast that it falls on the floor before you can catch up. There is improved storage, drayage, and shipping costs for fabric graphics.
How should fabric graphics be cared for?
It is recommended that
To limit getting the graphic dirty during installation, keep the set-up area clean by using a drop cloth and wash your hands prior to setup. You may want to consider purchasing inexpensive white cotton gloves. Wearing the gloves while handling the graphic will minimize the transfer of dirt and oils to your graphic.
What is the standard turnaround time for SEG?
Typical turnaround time is per customer request. Larger jobs require more production time and should be scheduled accordingly.
How are SEG graphics shipped?
Some fabric choices will be shipped rolled onto a tube. It is important that any graphic initially shipped on a tube always be stored and shipped on a tube. Most SEG graphics will arrive folded and should be stored and shipped folded. Retain the plastic bag to keep your graphics clean.
What are the size limits of SEG?
- The maximum size (width without a seam) of an SEG graphic is about 118” (117” visual).
- Larger seamed graphics are available.
How does fabric graphic quality compare to other materials?
Silicone edge graphics not only match other graphic options, they often exceed them! Dye sublimation equipment is more advanced than ever offering near continuous tone (limited by the texture of the material you choose) and exceptional detail created from high DPI outputs and sophisticated image patterns. Color is permanently dyed into the fabric creating a deeply saturated image with vibrant colors.
What extrusion profiles can you create SEG graphics for?
Silicone edge graphics can be created for almost any type of aluminum extrusion system. However, the main extrusions we offer SEG graphics for are Classic MODUL®, Agam®, Octanorm®, Infinity™ and Nouveau™.
