Rojo unveils new synthetic papers

Paper distributor Rojo Pacific is selling a new choice of composite synthetic papers, the Rodure ML range.

Normally synthetic papers have been single layer films, often coated and or corona treated for printing but Rojo Pacific says these new synthetics offer improved performance at a cost-competitive price.

John Wright, managing director at Rojo Pacific says, the new additions will complement the company’s Rodure range of synthetics and provide superior performance at a competitive price.

The company says the Rodure ML range is the result of advanced technology recently developed and brought to Australia by Rojo Pacific.

Wright says his company is constantly looking for the world’s best high-performance products to add to its extensive range of wide-format media, heard about the manufacturer last year and travelled to its plant in September to evaluate their capabilities.

“This company is manufacturing in a way I have never seen before, to create a range of multi-layered synthetics which provide significant benefits over single-layer products, and can even be customised to suit specific applications,” he says.

The process is all handled on the manufacturer’s specially-modified production lines, which laminate and coat in a single pass to create an almost limitless range of products which Wright says are typically stronger and more durable than well-known synthetic papers, with improved initiated and uninitiated tear strength, flatness and shrink resistance.

Wright says, “As well as enhancing performance of the standard products in the range, compared with single-layer papers, the multi-layer manufacturing process also allows for the creation of application-specific products – for instance, adding a blockout core between two thin sheets of white coated film to provide a truly opaque solution.

“Products can also be custom-built for specific applications – for instance, we can build up a product to reach a desired thickness, stiffness or rigidity, or supply products with different surfaces to suit particular print requirements.”

Rojo Pacific has already taken delivery of the revised and well known UBlock and XTI-200 products, which are ideal for printed banners, offset graphics, tags and labels, with other products due to be added over coming months.

“We are looking forward to continued developments, and to bringing more of these products to the Australian market.”

Rojo Pacific has 25 years specialist experience in the synthetic paper sector.
