Xpression colors are based on heavy metal-free formulations and do not contain formaldehyde or phthalates, with the exception of fluorescent colors. All colors have excellent miscibility and may be mixed with each other, enabling a very wide color space.

Compared to traditional labels or adhesives, decals printed with Xpression colors can be perfectly matched to the image, maintaining all free space within the illustration.  Since only the protective coating is printed 0.4 millimeters outside the image, decals made with Xpression colors offer ultra-high definition decoration capabilities. 

Xpression colors are ideal for exterior surface decals as they combine light‐fast pigments with a weather and UV stable varnish system, exhibiting a hard surface after being transferred.

Xpression colors are based on a PUR (polyurethane) system.  They are alkali resistant and acid resistant with good light fastness and very low yellowing characteristics.
