Felix Schoeller Group Introduces Inkjet Papers with the Character of Woodfree Paper
OSNABRÜCK, Germany—December 23, 2015—The new JET-SPEED web press papers developed by the Osnabrück-based Felix Schoeller Group offer the market a genuine alternative to South African Sappi’s JAZ range.
The new papers were developed in conjunction with HP for use on their PageWide Web Presses. They feature HP‘s ColorPRO Technology, which enables them to meet HP’s high quality standards. ColorPRO Technology means that Felix Schoeller’s papers do not need to be pre-treated but can be directly printed using water-based pigmented inks. Their performance on HP printers is outstanding. As well as high whiteness, with high ink application the papers produce better print quality with higher optical densities and a larger color gamut than standard woodfree papers.
The papers in the JET-SPEED web press range are all about pin-sharp details and creating the look and feel of coated woodfree paper, combined with full color inkjet functionality and outstanding print properties, brilliant colors and sharp line definition.
“We are proud of the fact that in a very short space of time we—in conjunction with HP, our partner of many years—have developed a top-quality, high-speed inkjet paper. It enables us to develop new markets and convince new customers of the quality of our products," Thomas Leifert, head of Felix Schoeller’s Digital Media Business Unit, stressed.
“As a leading provider of digital papers for multiple print platforms, Felix Schoeller knows how to deliver unique products that meet end-user demand," said Matthew Nuth, director LF Graphics Medias and Coatings with HP. “The Felix Schoeller portfolio of inkjet-optimized uncoated and coated papers with ColorPRO Technology provides our customers with a wide variety of media for multiple applications.”
JET-SPEED web press papers are used for high-end small print runs or customized applications such as mail shots, full-colour brochures and marketing materials. Samples of the new pigment-coated inkjet papers are available on request. The products are available in grammages of 90, 115, 130 and 150 g/m² in either gloss or silk surface.
