Lyndhurst, New Jersey-based Hop Industries Corp., makers of synthetic paper it calls Hop-Syn that is used in a variety of applications, including point-of-purchase displays, banners and backlit signs, announces that its GO grade of paper, originally designed exclusively for the HP Indigo digital press, is also suitable for other types of printers.
The company now recommends the paper for digital LED inkjet printers, as well as offset LED presses.
The paper, company says, can be used for both narrow- and wide-format printing to fulfill a number of applications, including point-of-purchase displays.
Hop Industries says Hop-Syn GO is an environmentally-friendly, cost-effective alternative to printing on other top-coated plastics or laminated paper substrates.
Hop-Syn GO’s proprietary top coating provides a scuff-resistant surface that delivers excellent ink adhesion with the highest color resolution. Made from a combination of polypropylene and calcium carbonate, Hop-Syn GO’s pre-treated surface has been shown to eliminate or reduce static by more than 25 percent compared to printing on 100 percent solid plastics, such as polystyrene and rigid PVC.
