GPA Expands Product Intelligence with UV Inkjet Synthetic Portfolio

GPA, the experts in providing global industry and product intelligence to the Digital, Offset and Flexo communities, is proud to offer the first-to-market line of digital synthetics and self-adhesives specific to the Konica Minolta AccurioJet KM-1 and Komori Impremia IS29 platforms. UV Inkjet printers have told GPA they want greater utilization of presses for broader, more profitable applications; the simplicity and availability of GPA’s press-specific stocks enable just that.

The portfolio is broad with a range of rigid vinyl, synthetic paper, self-adhesive vinyl and paper, and even Digifly Printable Canvas, all available in UV Inkjet sheet sizes ready to ship from GPA’s warehouses. Ordering is flexible to fit any job size with packs of 100 sheets or cartons of 300 sheets. Additionally, since different applications require different performance characteristics and economic needs, GPA offers the products in two options that include a proprietary UVIJ top coat version for maximum performance as well as a traditional non-coated version for general use.

“We have continued to see window, wall and floor graphics migrate to UV Inkjet platforms in the current economy, and this portfolio supports that demand as well as the pent up demand for traditional applications as the economy recovers,” says Craig Surette, Director of Business Development. “The durability of UV Inkjet inks combined with GPA synthetic substrates and coating allows printers to skip lamination and UV top-coating for unbelievable performance and market responsiveness,” adds MaryAnn Geers, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Corporate Strategy. “These stocks simply accelerate printers’ speed to market and profitability.”

Continuous observation of global trends helps lead to solutions, exceptional material sourcing and manufacturing. The combination of innovative substrates, a focus on tangible solutions, and an active participation in industry needs, all reinforce GPA’s continuing strength in the marketplace as innovation facilitators.
