Gemini is committed to producing the highest quality products in the signage industry. Duets by Gemini is no exception. Manufactured in Cannon Falls, Minnesota, Duets products are produced in Gemini’s cutting-edge manufacturing facility. Gemini’s state-of-the-art class 10,000 cleanroom is a feature of their manufacturing facility. The cleanroom produces the highest quality ADA and engraving signage substrates by:

  • Maintaining tightly controlled color and finished uniformity 
  • Ensuring dust-free materials
  • Producing consistently flat material

“The class 10,000 clean room allows Gemini to produce consistent, high-quality sheets that sign professionals can trust will look great for their customers,” says Dave Johnson, Gemini’s Channel Development Manager.

Every sheet is inspected throughout the process to ensure the highest product quality. Once the material is produced, it leaves the clean room and enters an automated touchless process. Sheets are cut to standard sizes and removed from the line without ever being touched. This process allows for up to a thousand pounds of material to be produced per hour. 

The sheets are then stored in climate-controlled rooms. This keeps material from forming impurities. After the manufacturing process is complete, Gemini recycles scrap material for future Duets products. 

Gemini stands behind everything that leaves their facility. While it’s their name on the materials, it’s your name on the final product. That is a responsibility Gemini doesn’t take lightly.

While every laser is different, here are recommended laser settings to try out using Duets products.

The Duets Tactiles and Accents are endorsed by Direct Color Systems. It is recommended to use an adhesion promotor on the Accents while the Tactiles do not require an adhesion promotor.

Duets® Laser XT offers superior UV stability. Gemini subjected Laser XT to 1,200 hours of accelerated weathering, punishing UV exposure and color spectrophotometer analysis. The results? Duets Laser XT outperforms, even in extreme conditions.

See the results for yourself in the UV testing video below. Compatible with both laser and rotary engraving applications, Duets Laser XT is offered in a wide selection of color combinations and finishes.

Please remove the protective coating before laser or rotary engraving.

Before cutting the materials, however, it is recommended to leave the protective masking in place when performing vector cuts if your application will permit. This will minimize residue and clean-up efforts.
Using the ‘bottom up’ engraving setting in your laser software will minimize the re-distribution of color residue to the core. Increasing power in 5% increments can be helpful and multiple passes might be required to achieve your optimal results.

In many cases, Z-offset (controlled de-focus) in the range of 1 mm – 2 mm will allow for a smoother engraving surface with a more intense color result.
The air assist is designed to prevent dust from setting on the lens and thereby causing harm to the lens.

However, for materials causing little to no smoke or dust, air assist can be reduced or turned off for better engraving results.

Regular cleaning intervals are recommended to make sure no harm is being done to the lens.
- The panels should be stored horizontally and flat
- Storage location should be dry and weatherproof (indoor)
- Average-temperature rooms without large fluctuations in room temperature and air humidity
- The material should not be exposed to direct sunlight, as the protective film can become porous if too much heat is generated
- Too long storage can have a negative effect on the protective film
