Mitsubishi HiTec Paper has launched Jetscript Metal VPG 1018, a metallic-silver-gloss inkjet paper developed for water-based inkjet printing and particularly suitable for self-adhesive label applications.
Metallic glossy inkjet labels were previously only possible using a metallic film. Jetscript Metal VPG 1018, however, is a pure fiber-based paper product with a metallic mirror finish and a transparent, microporous inkjet coating for excellent printing performance.
The 110gsm paper, which will be on display at Labelexpo Europe, is suitable for water-based inkjet printing (dye and pigment inks), compatible with latex inks, and is claimed to provide optimum performance in the self-adhesive production process. The company says it is fast-drying and has a high print density.
It is suited to cosmetics, beverage and food industry applications.
