Why Synthetic Paper?
Have you ever wanted to produce printed literature items that could stand up to the harsh conditions of outdoor use?
If you are looking for a 100% waterproof material with fade resistance, good archival quality, tear resistance and outstanding toner adhesion to withstand scratching, we have a synthetic paper that meets your needs. Synthetic Papers also known as polyester films, Mylar®, synthetics, waterproof papers and permanent papers, all are available in a range of thicknesses and sizes to meet your most demanding application.
Designed to be used on today's modern digital laser copiers and printers. Synthetic papers are used for applications that call for a robust and durable media with truly exceptional print quality.
Synthetic papers are fade and scuff resistant, waterproof, resist blood, sweat, solvents and chemicals, wipeable, foldable, punchable, die cuttable, tear resistant and non-electrical conductive.
We offer the widest range of synthetic paper for digital laser printing. Four grades are available from flexible to very rigid. Each grade has its own unique qualities and performance.
At MtM, we offer you 4 distinct types of synthetic media. The main reason is that each type has a different degree of rigidity.
Here we show you the difference between the 4 synthetics. We use 1” x 8.5” strips of each material at the 10 mil thickness.
Rigid materials lend themselves to applications such as menus, plant stakes, door hangers and signage.
More supple materials, like Teslin and PolyBlend, are better for manuals and literature where pages will be turned.
Polyesters have a crisp spring to them ideal for shelf wobblers.
If you need advice on which material is best for your requirement, just give us a call, we will be happy to help.
