Monadnock Introduces New 100% Recycled Media for HP Indigo Sheetfed Presses
Monadnock Paper Mills, Inc. has announced a new line of RIT HP Indigo 3-Star Certified media made with 100% post-consumer waste (PCW) recycled fiber. The line includes uncoated and coated options under its flagship Astrolite PC 100 line of fine recycled printing papers.
- Astrolite PC 100 Digital+ for HP Indigo is available in weights ranging from 80-lb. text to 130-lb. double-thick cover.
- Astrolite PC 100 Velvet C2S with a universal coating optimized for HP Indigo (LEP), dry toner (EP) and offset lithography presses, available in weights ranging from 80-lb. text to 150 lb. cover. This single ply 150-lb. cover is unique to the industry.
All products in the Astrolite PC 100 line have a matching shade. The surface is crafted using the best formulation chemistries for optimal LEP print performance. The Velvet coating provides an exquisite matte print surface that is unlike any other coated fine printing paper. The grades are available in a full range of sizes including 12x18” to 29.5x20.75” to accommodate the full portfolio of HP Indigo sheet fed digital presses.
“Today more jobs require shorter runs and variable data with the print quality that HP Indigo presses afford,” said Julie Brannen, Director of Sustainable Innovation for Monadnock. “Because of the high quality of Monadnock’s PCW recycled papers, there is no longer a compromise between quality and the environment.”
All of Monadnock’s fine printing papers are Forest Stewardship Council certified (FSC C0018866) ensuring responsible use of forest resources. They are manufactured carbon neutral with 100% Green-e certified renewable electricity. The paper is recyclable in the curb-side mix paper recycle bin.
