UPM Impresse plus C

July 13, 2017 - UPM has launched a new SC paper, UPM Impresse plus C, custom-developed for coldset web offset printing. UPM Impresse plus C offers a smoother, glossier finish and a unique, magazine-quality result that sets new benchmarks in CSWO printing.

"Customers with coldset presses told us they needed to make better use of their capacity and expand into new areas of commercial printing but they couldn't compete with the quality of heatset and rotogravure printers," explains Olli Juntunen, Product Manager at UPM Jämsä River Mills in Finland.

"We realized this called for a new, innovative product. Working closely with our customers, we devoted two years to extensive research and development until we were confident that UPM Impresse plus C met their exact requirements."

UPM Impresse plus C is offered in three grammages: 48 g/m2, 51 g/m2 and 54 g/m2. Although special press settings are not strictly required for higher-quality results, UPM offers straightforward press/post-press recommendations for the best possible print quality.
