COMBINED LOCKS, WI—December 10, 2014—Appleton Coated has introduced a new uncoated product line, Appleton Coated Fiscal Opaque. It represents a significant new development in the company’s continued expansion into new markets. Designed and manufactured specifically for the financial printing and commercial printing segments, it is offered in both offset and web inkjet rolls.
The web inkjet offering includes products for dye-based and pigment-based web inkjet platforms, as well as with ColorPRO technology for the HP T-series platforms.
"This new product line expands our portfolio of highly-engineered, lighter basis weight, high opacity printing papers," said John Mazuroski, Appleton Coated’s business development manager for technical and specialty products. "We have the technical and manufacturing expertise to design and develop challenging new products that answer customer demand. Our Fiscal Opaque products deliver excellent on-press performance, high opacity and superior brightness."
