Appvion, Inc., Appleton, Wis., USA, has introduced a treated high-speed inkjet paper as the latest addition to its portfolio of specialty papers that includes market-leading products in the carbonless, thermal, and security segments. Appvion Treated High-Speed Inkjet Paper is engineered and manufactured specifically for web-based inkjet printing and has been qualified on key original equipment manufacturers' (OEMs) presses including Canon-Oce, Ricoh, and Screen.
Appvion Treated High-Speed Inkjet is designed especially for transactional documents such as bills and statements, direct mail, promotional materials, and catalogs and books. The paper is available in a 24 lb. bond/60 lb. text weight, with additional weights to be added to the product line soon.
"The universal surface treatment we apply to our high-speed inkjet paper optimizes performance and versatility by allowing printers to use either dye-based or pigment-based aqueous ink with this product," said Ethan Haas, Appvion's VP and GM of carbonless and specialty papers.
Appvion Treated High-Speed Inkjet Paper delivers a wide color gamut and yields vibrant image reproduction. Its superior sheet formation ensures even solids and sharp lines. The paper also offers a brilliant whiteness for excellent image contrast, and high opacity for low show-through. It's designed to dry quickly to provide outstanding smear resistance. Plus, it runs smoothly and efficiently on post-processing and finishing equipment, Appvion notes.
"We make our inkjet paper exclusively at our integrated pulp and specialty paper mill in Pennsylvania. That gives us the flexibility and control to ensure our product meets the increasing performance standards of OEMs and that we provide the product consistency and responsiveness in service and supply that our customers value," Haas said. He added that Appvion's dedicated service package includes a stocking program, shortened lead times, and low minimum order quantities.
Appvion Treated High-Speed Inkjet Paper is both acid free and elemental chlorine free (ECF). It is manufactured under ISO 14001:2004-certified environmental management systems. FSC® Certified (FSC-C003368) product versions are available. Appvion offers technical support for product testing. Plus, Appvion Treated High-Speed Inkjet Paper is covered by Appvion's 100% satisfaction guarantee.
