REVLAR Premium Synthetic Paper is RELYCO’s best synthetic paper. It is the brightest white and most opaque paper offered, with a deluxe coating. REVLAR is waterproof, tear-proof, washable, sanitizable, fade-resistant and recyclable – no need to laminate. This substrate is ideal for a multitude of applications. REVLAR’s thicker mils are particularly well suited for menus, signage, manuals, maps, tags, cards, guides and brochures.
“We’re excited to have earned this approval from Konica Minolta,” stated Bruce Steinberg, CEO of RELYCO. “Our thicker REVLAR mils are in high-demand with clients who need a more substantial material for their projects. We are thrilled to have them tested and approved for use on the AccurioPress C14000. This is wonderful assurance for Konica Minolta customers that our thicker REVLAR will work on their machines, which allows them to enjoy the opportunities that the full range of our REVLAR line can introduce to their business.”
Konica Minolta’s Formalized Substrate Testing Process and Media Guide
Several factors, including increasingly higher production speeds, have necessitated closer inspection of substrates to assess their suitability for Konica Minolta AccurioPress digital presses. Papers must be well manufactured, run consistently and generally meet the demands of the press from pick-up and registration through to toner transfer, fusing and exiting the press for post-processing steps. Konica Minolta’s approval process includes testing on feed, fusing, jamming, registration, slipping, curling and scratching. Approved substrates are added to the new Media Guide, created for commercial printers as a trusted resource for a wide variety of substrates.
