Agfa announced the market launch of SYNAPS OM90F as the latest addition to its SYNAPS synthetic papers portfolio. The launch fits Agfa’s strategy to continuously develop the SYNAPS range of products to keep pace with customer needs in view of new application requirements and evolving print technologies.
The use of SYNAPS as synthetic print media is mainly driven by its water and tear resistance properties. The thin gauge and folding capabilities of OM90F, short for Offset Matt 90 g/m² Foldable, now allow the use of SYNAPS for additional application areas.
Kaisu Soudant, Global Sales Manager SYNAPS, comments: “As a complement to our existing portfolio, SYNAPS OM90F answers the need of the market to have the exceptional print efficiency that SYNAPS offers also available for applications with specific requirements. The 85µm gauge and folding ability of OM90F offer to our customers easy access to relevant additional application segments such as book sections and map printing.”
SYNAPS OM90F has the same ink acceptance layer as the existing SYNAPS OM range to ensure print efficiency in both offset and HP Indigo printing but it has a newly developed polyester core for achieving easy folding. SYNAPS OM90F is available for sales as of today in standard sheet formats while sheet and roll formats to customer specification can be delivered upon request.
