Digital graphic papers to meet the highest demands

Sappi highlights new solutions in the field of dye sublimation papers at the FESPA Global Print Expo

Printing textiles and hard substrates with impressive results: this is what Transjet dye sublimation papers from Sappi stand for. The new Transjet Drive is a sublimation paper optimised for industrial printers with a glue-belt system and will be showcased for the first time at FESPA trade fair in Munich. Sappi will also be presenting its inkjet papers for large-format applications, the Fusion Topliner containerboard and various silicone base papers at Stand B6-B30. 

The FESPA Global Print Expo 2019 motto – “An Explosion of Possibilities” – could not be more ideally suited to Sappi's stand, where the company is presenting its high-quality and versatile papers to customers and interested parties. A highlight is the Transjet portfolio, with which fashion and home textiles, hard substrates and sportswear can be customised and personalised in strong colours using transfer printing. These papers are also suitable for soft signage, i.e. textile printing in marketing and advertising.

Impressive print results, efficient processes
The new Transjet Drive sublimation paper is primarily tailored to industrial printers with a glue-belt system. The exceptionally smooth reverse side is a key feature. This advantage and the remarkable fast ink-drying on the printed side increase runnability and efficiency during the production process. Optimal cost efficiency and consistent reliability are central benefits for this and all other dye sublimation papers from Sappi. At the same time, they ensure consistent ink transfer with minimal ink consumption, are PE-free and contain 100 percent recyclable pulp. 

A real eye-catcher for indoor and outdoor applications
For large-format digital printing, Sappi is showcasing its large-format inkjet papers at the Munich trade fair. This includes the Scrolljet product, which is used for outdoor applications such as city light and mega light systems. It stands out above all with its high tear strength and the UV protection of the print. Swiss Matt and DT-Plot show their strengths in all indoor large-format posters. They are used wherever accuracy and razor-sharp lines are especially important. Products made with these papers also stand out with their rich colour brightness and nuances.

A wide portfolio as a benefit for customers
Perfectly designed classical packaging, shelf-ready packaging and POS displays ideally complement outdoor advertising. To this end, Sappi’s Fusion Topliner containerboard is used for laminating corrugated board, among other applications. With its high degree of whiteness, it is ideal for digital printing, reproduces colours very brilliantly and is also very easy to process. Brand owners, designers, marketing managers and distributors can also rely on Sappi as a broad-based, long-term partner in this area – with everything from a single source. Products from the silicon base papers sector round off the range of digital printing products that Sappi will be presenting at the FESPA 2019, Stand B6-B30. Visitors will have an opportunity to see the manifold possibilities of silicone base papers for all self-adhesive applications, such as automotive foils, outdoor advertising and plotter films.
