Polyart® synthetic paper consists of a high density polyethylene (HDPE) film coated with a unique clay coating that ensures print quality that's vivid and colourful.
Combining the advantages of paper with the durability of plastic, Polyart synthetic paper looks, feels, prints and converts like a premium matt-coated paper but stands up to water, weather, grease, chemicals and resists tearing in both directions.
Polyart’s state-of-the-art synthetic paper comprise a complete range of films designed to withstand the most demanding applications.
Polyart synthetic paper has a unique, patented manufacturing process consisting in biaxially stretching combined with paper-like coating.
Polyart synthetic paper includes a large variety of properties: water resistant, tear resistant, outdoor use, top quality printing, environment friendly, to name a few.
The uniqueness of Polyart synthetic paper makes it particularly suited when very specific technical benefits are required, such as:
Resistant to tearing and water, Polyart is an ideal substrate for outdoor applications. Plus, because Polyart is resistant to seawater, it is perfect for drum labels, shipping labels, etc.
Resistant to oily substances and most chemical products (i.e. ammonia, caustic soda, isopropyl alcohol).
Smudge proof Thermal Transfer print, absorbent and resistant coating in wet environment.
Due to its special manufacturing process, Polyart has no grain direction, which means it conforms easily to bottle shapes
Can withstand extreme heat and cold, remaining dimensionally stable up to +60° C / +140° F and down to -60° C / -76° F.
Due to its good UV resistance and weathering characteristics, Polyart will not shrink or become brittle.
Complies with specifications for toy regulations.
Can be Gamma irradiated for medical sterilization processing. After being sterilized, it is microbially clean.
Meets class 10 microchip clean room specifications.
Because of balanced physical properties, conforms well to irregular surfaces or very tight radii.
