Oct. 20, 2022 - UPM Communication Papers is collaborating with HP Inc. to pilot a new generation of digital printing papers specifically designed for high-speed inkjet printing technology.
The new portfolio includes four treated, coated grades, that provide productive and smooth printing, excellent image production and ease of use for customers. The ColorPRO papers are compatible with all existing HP Inkjet presses, as well as the newest generation that will be unveiled at PRINTING United Expo in Las Vegas, Oct. 19 - 21.
"Digital printing technologies are being increasingly adopted by conventional printing as well as specialist players," said Ruud van den Berg, SVP Sales, UPM Communication Papers. "UPM Communication Papers is at the frontline of this shift, ready to make a smooth transition for customers embracing digital printing methods."
From book and magazine publishing to highly targeted direct marketing, innovation in coated high-speed inkjet papers creates opportunities for customers to transition to digital printing without the need for primers, bonding agents, or optimisers. This brings business advantages through time and cost savings, as well as promoting more sustainable printing through lower ink consumption, waste reduction and savings in drying energy.
Three grades have successfully achieved ColorPRO Technology: UPM Star matt JET 45 lbs, UPM Star matt 1.2 JET 54.1 lbs and UPM Finesse matt JET 60.8 lbs. The fourth grade, UPM Finesse gloss JET 77.7 lbs, is expected to be qualified shortly, after final testing at HP's facilities in San Diego by end of 2022.
UPM Communication Papers is the world's leading producer of graphic papers, offering an extensive product range for advertising and publishing as well as home and office uses. To learn more, visit: www.upmpaper.com
