Synthetic paper has been manufactured using a synthetic resin that was derived from petroleum as the primary material whose characteristics match up to that of a plastic film and the appearance matches to a regular paper. The two attributes of a synthetic paper are:
1.They are tough
2.They have an ability to support high quality printing.
Any application that desires a long term durability, use the synthetic paper as they are chemical, water, tear resistant and also much more durable than paper that gives an ease during printing. Nowadays, there is a wide range of synthetic paper to choose from which is either coated / uncoated, biaxially oriented , calendared, cast and blown from which the specific one suiting your needs the best should be chosen. There is are a lot of materials used to produce them that includes high density polyethylene, polypropylene and polystyrene. In the recent years, everything has developed and so has the synthetic paper and it has become very important to choose from the endless list of many regular paper and plastic film combos known as the synthetic paper and the expected synthetic paper.
The synthetic paper is said to have loads of uses in today`s world. It consists of Teslin Substrate as mentioned above, to give out a durable, lightweight, versatile synthetic paper to be used in applications like:
1.Tags and Labels: A perfect tag and label solution is given out by this paper that is the most widely used for food and pharmaceuticals and as it give out excellent print quality; it is perfect for the applications that use individual labels with information.
2.Pressure Sensitive Labels: The paper is ideal for use here as it is durable, waterproof for shipping containers, medical packaging and supply chain labels. It also gives out the resistance to water, chemical and solvents, the compatibility with digital printing technologies, the extreme durability of label and all the information that it contains the exclusive bonding to both temporary and permanent adhesive systems and the flexibility and conformability.
3.Laminated Car and Key Tags: This technology enables the unmatched durability and performances and they prove to be very important for the loyalty, insurance and healthcare applications and as they give out prolonged card life and a pleasant card appearance, strong layers are formed in the multi layer cards and they can be printed using any combination of printing methods.
For Molding and Graphics: These are compatible with almost all the print methods and are adaptable to a wide variety of molding systems such as injection and blow molding. They are resistant to water and also provide breathability through its structure preventing blisters and bubbles, developing strong bonds without the use of adhesives.
