It is strongly recommended that charts be mounted on a smooth flat surface, like an acrylic board, to ensure no blemishes, bends, or bubbles occur that negatively impact image quality measurements. Imatest offers the option to professionally mount our test charts on acrylic or E-panel.  

Discuss mounting/framing of your targets with your sales engineer to have your quote include mounted charts. The ability to order select targets with framing will be coming to Imatest’s online store in the near future.

Mounting Substrate Types

E-panel is an aluminum composite panel used for interior and exterior display and signage applications. It is suitable for mounting graphics as well as digital or screen printing, and can be saw cut, routed or punched;

Acrylic sheets (plexiglass) offer a lightweight and shatter-resistant alternative to glass panels. Clear acrylic is used for transmissive targets.  Black acrylic with a matte surface is used to mount reflective targets or to provide a rigid frame for transmissive targets

Reflective Chart Mounting

Reflective Inkjet (semi-gloss or matte) and Photographic targets can be mounted on E-panel or black acrylic with optional mounting holes.
