Konica Minolta has announced the testing and approval of Hop-Syn XT Synthetic Papers for use on its AccurioPress C14000/C12000 digital presses. Both Hop-Syn’s 8 and 10 mil waterproof synthetic substrates have been added to Konica Minolta’s Approved Media Guide.
“Hop-Syn’s XT substrate is the first synthetic paper to be approved for the AccurioPress C14000, the result of rigorous testing in our Japanese facilities,” said Dino Pagliarello, senior vice president, Product Management and Planning, Konica Minolta. “Our customers make huge investments with us in purchasing our presses, and deserve the utmost assurances that our partners’ products will perform as expected for their specific applications.”
Hop-Syn XT is an extra tear-resistant synthetic paper made from a unique mixture of calcium carbonate and polypropylene resin. The XT grade paper is manufactured with UV inhibitors and additional whitening agents to improve its sheet brightness and opacity up to 94%.
Hop-Syn XT is available in a variety of roll widths, sheet sizes and gauges, with a thickness range of 4mil up to 10mil, roll widths of 55” and 61” and sheet sizes 25”x 38” and 26”x 40″. Popular applications include POP displays, signs and banners, hang tags, shelf talkers, book covers and outdoor product guides. Hop-Syn XT is also perfect for businesses requiring waterproof materials that can be cleaned with disinfecting spray or wipes, such as menus in restaurants.
“Knowing our products qualified for these new machines now hitting the market after extensive testing at Konica Minolta’s headquarters in Japan will provide owners with confidence in both reproduction quality and printability of our tear resistant and waterproof Hop-Syn Synthetic Papers.” said John Risdon, account executive, Hop Industries. “Seeing our XT material printed at the introduction of the C14000 and C12000 at Printing United, and during subsequent demos at Konica Minolta’s new Customer Experience Center in Ramsey, New Jersey was an exciting opportunity and also a great learning experience.”
