Appleton to Begin Selling Tru-Tech Durable Paper Products
Appleton, Appleton, Wis., recently announced that it will add the Tru-Tech line of durable paper products to its family of durable products. Tru-Tech is a division of Temple-Inland, with manufacturing operations in Linden, N.J.
Tru-Tech, available in sheets and rolls, features a wide range of tear-, moisture- and puncture-resistant products. The materials are water-, oil- and grease-resistant and, because they are made from paper, they print and convert like paper. The unique design also allows the products to be laser-printable.
"The addition of Tru-Tech to our durable product line extends Appleton's range of value-added materials supplied to the document, tag, ticket, label and commercial printing markets," said Albert Selker, director of marketing, Coated Solutions. "Durable applications are growing 8 percent to 10 percent per year, and Tru-Tech is the ideal substitute for synthetics because it prints, converts and looks just like paper."
There are 10 grades in the Tru-Tech product line. Current uncoated applications for Tru-Tech include manuals/instruction sheets, continuous forms, ID cards (temporary and permanent), tags, hunting licenses, bags and mailers, dust jackets for books and law labels. Current coated applications include point-of-sale signs/shelf talkers/posters, CD sleeves, brochures and folders, trading and playing cards, labels, packaging, menus, wall maps, and dust jackets and soft covers for books.
