Hop-Syn synthetic paper manufacturer Hop Industries has made its Go grade suitable for LED inkjet and offset printers.
Initially designed exclusively for the HP Indigo digital press, Hop-Syn Go is now suitable for a range of wide- and narrow-format digital UV inkjet and LED offset machines.
Hop-Syn Go is made from a combination of polypropylene and calcium carbonate. Its pre-treated surface has been shown to reduce static by more than 25% compared to printing on 100% solid plastics, such as polystyrene and rigid PVC.
A proprietary top coating provides a scuff-resistant surface and Hop said a thermally stable construction can withstand temperatures from -50F up to 220 without distortion. Its non-porous surface repels water, grease, oil and harsh chemicals.
Hop-Syn Go is a white, opaque, smooth matte synthetic paper, available in .008 and .010 gauge thicknesses in standard stock sheets, including 20.5 x 29.5in, 23.5 x 29.5in, 26 x 40in and in any roll width up to a 55in.
