Duratex Mesh Banner through an HP L26500
I have an HP L26500 and at first, it was a bit tricky to get the reverse wound material to load, but once in, I had only one issue and that was the backing came loose from the mesh material during a test print. I found that the setting I had for the mesh substrate, had the temperature too high. I lowered the temps almost to the minimum for the substrate settings and it printed just fine. I had a 12 banner order and after my corrections in temp, ink flow and passes, it worked great. I probably wasted four linear feet of 54" material. I consider that a win for the first time using the material. I finished them with banner tape and grommets. Customer loves the look and durability of the mesh banners.

Reverse rolled, doesn't load in HP365
Technically nice material, going by the sample we got. Great brightness, seems like quality stock. BUT it's reverse rolled. Which means it will not feed properly in our machine due to the tension being different. They really need to specify that on the order page.
I was told the reason for reverse roll was people didn't like getting the media dirty when loading. This seems a logical fallacy as the $2k 3M cast vinyl rolls aren't rolled reverse, and people are smart enough to use gloves when handling THAT.
If your machine can handle reverse roll, then maybe this will work for you.
