Deeper Color saturation
trying to think of any.......
If the surface is actually a matte Silver Metallic as stated, I doubt you would lose any gain...and in fact it might be enhanced.
The only reservation I might have comes from experience with dealing with Silver Metallic in a pure (...or nearly pure...) state.
It's terribly unforgiving.
Any surface irregularity is highlighted by the difference in the more / less reflective nature of a given area. If the material is pulled too tight, widening the "weave" openings, a moire effect might result. That would be a shame seeing that a primary advantage of Spandex is that it doesn't produce moire effects like Mfg AT material does.
But in the end, if no adverse "shine" is produced....I'd have to say again it might be the "next big discovery" for those interested in Spandex as a Screen surface.
