Tear-resistant translucent paper. Ideal for durable inserts, covers, menus, folders, bags, high-quality hang-tags or outer packaging with barrier function. Excellent strength thanks to dimensionally stable and thermostable polyester film core.
ENDURO Ice 175 is a unique composite material consisting of a 100 µm PET film core and wafer-thin, white natural paper surfaces. The three-layer product structure is very robust, resistant to edge tearing and water impermeable. It gives all ENDURO Ice grades identical translucency with an elegant feel and a finely ribbed appearance. This enables applications in areas where conventional translucent papers reach their limits by comparison. It can be cut, punched, perforated, drilled, embossed, scored, folded, glued and bound without issue. Also suitable for hot foil stamping.
The high-quality paper surfaces offer optimized feed properties and printing results. Thanks to the slightly absorbent surface, all common standard inks and varnishes can be used with thin ink application in offset printing. For more challenging layouts with higher colour saturation, we recommend printing inks with oxidative drying or UV-reactive inks. Suitable for laser printing and printing on HP Indigo sheet-fed printing systems, taking our processing instructions into account.
