The retail community and their print service providers (PSPs) choose the popular synthetic paper for durable and vivid displays, as well as for anti-theft packaging.
"We’ve seen tremendous growth in the point of purchase and packaging segments," comments Jack Smith, senior vice president of Hop Industries. "Our customers value our environmentally-friendly synthetic paper, which is 100% recyclable and more durable than standard plastics such as PVC and polystyrene, and especially laminated paper. Tamper resistant packaging, longer-lasting displays, and more durable in-store signage gives greater value to their printed pieces.”
Hop-Syn is a synthetic paper constructed from polypropylene (PP) resins and calcium carbonate (CaCO3), which provide extra durability and weather resistance over pulp-based papers. Hop‑Syn is free of toxins, heavy metals and chlorine. PSPs use Hop-Syn to print high-quality graphics via offset litho, UV offset, flexo, screen, UV inkjet or thermal transfer equipment.
Hop-Syn is available in six grades: Hop-Syn G1, G2, XT, TO, DL and BL. Each grade is available in a variety of roll widths, sheet sizes and gauges for printing high quality retail signs, block-out window posters, ID Cards, backlit displays, promotional tags, outdoor signs and more.
