The product, launched for commercial digital printing, can print with both powder toner based laser printers as well as liquid toner based printers. Laser printing is a newly introduced feature for the product, keeping the huge potential of photo-album and coffee table book printing segment in mind. It is printable with almost any production printer, such as HP Indigo, Xerox, Konica Minolta, Ricoh and Canon to name a few.
Apart from laser printing, the product can undergo any printing process, be it conventional and UV offset printing; UV and water based flexographic printing; thermal transfer printing; screen and letterpress printing; UV inkjet printing or HP Indigo and HP Latex printing. Brilliant whiteness of the product makes it appear very similar to paper and helps produce print quality and true colour output.
High tear resistant synthetic paper has been engineered to be non-tearable and has been designed for tag applications. It is printable on both sides by UV offset, water and UV Flexo, and thermal transfer printing processes. Some of the typical tag applications include garment hang tags, horticulture identification tags, tree tags, cattle identification tags and airport transfer tags.
Speaking on the development, Kapil Anand- global head for speciality labels and industrial films at the company said, ‘We have a diversified portfolio of products under the Synthetic Paper category which currently find applications in retail and packaging, commercial printing, tags and labelling, and identification and credentials. Having said that, we are continuously working to fill in the market need gaps and also expand share of the pie. With these two new additions; we now cover the entire spectrum of print technologies and also offer a robust product with high tear resistance.’
