SYNTHETEK

 

Synthetek™ is an ultra-smooth synthetic printing paper that is water, grease, tear and fade-resistant. Available in thickness of 50 to 400 microns.

Synthetek™ is two-side pre-coated, bright white with excellent opacity. The smoothness and texture allow clean, sharp print definition, plus easy drying if normal inks are used.

Synthetek™ applications are in-mold, wrap around, pressure sensitive labels, release liner, posters, manuals, calendars, point of purchase graphics, maps and ink jet printing base paper.

Synthetek™ adapts easily to many printing processes, including flexography, lithography, gravure, rotary letterpress and screen printing. It also adapts to information systems such as thermal transfer dot matrix and inkjet and suitable for bar coding due to its sharp print definition and contrast.
