Nekoosa Coated Products Introduces Synaps Digital XM
Headquartered in Nekoosa, Wis., Nekoosa Coated Products expanded its digital compatible portfolio with the addition of Synaps Digital XM by Agfa, an international leader in film manufacturing.
Synaps Digital XM is a polyester-based synthetic paper engineered for high heat, dry toner digital printing. The polyester-based material has incredible tear strength, and can hold up in any environmental condition. Toner fuses with the synthetic paper to make the finished product both durable and naturally resistant to water, chemicals and grease.
“Its synthetic properties make Synaps Digital XM a great alternative to costly lamination. After considering the total cost associated with lamination, versus just digitally printing the substrate, you can clearly see that this product provides significant cost savings over lamination,” said Paul Charapata, president.
Synaps is available immediately in 5, 8 and 10 mil gauges and 8.5x11” and 12x18” sheet sizes through Nekoosa’s distribution partners in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico.
“As digital print is growing, it’s so important that we arrange our product offering to fit the changing needs of our customers,” added Charapata. “Nekoosa is now a one-stop-shop for digital synthetic printing, and Synaps Digital XM is a great product for digital printers looking for new applications to run.”
Nekoosa also carries an offset and HP Indigo compatible version of Synaps by Agfa. Agfa launched Synaps XM earlier this year.
