Print-ex OPAQUE is EXTEN’s ultimate BLOCK OUT solution for two-sided print on a variety of promotional media tools requiring high opacity


A new range of extra-opaque polypropylene sheets designed for graphic industry and suitable for printing application where maximum opacity is needed. The selection of surfaces available – identical on both sides – extra smooth or fine sand, allows the customer to choose for high grip and extra print-definition.
Corona treated on both sides, it can be printed with all UV printing technologies (offset, digital) and in silk-screen.


Thanks to its sandwich structure with light-stopping layer (white-barrier-white) OPAQUE 100 is a total light barrier ideal for the most severe contexts, even against direct light source in- and outdoor. The layers – made in fully recyclable polypropylene – are not laminated and are inseparable; this makes Print-ex OPAQUE 100 the perfect ecological choice. Remember: even when incinerated, PP only produces water and C02.
Applications: double sided window stickers, hanging banners, stoppers…and many more.
