Fusion Digital Paper™ vs. Vinyl Paper
Is Fusion Digital Paper™ an Improvement Over Vinyl Paper?
Compared to other polyesters, our Fusion Soft Polyester is very unique because it has virtually no static build up to assure excellent runnability. This is a feature that is very important, because if you have tried to run a polyester sheet on your high speed production digital equipment, you know that static is a problem that is common with this type of a product. But this is not the case with Fusion Soft Polyester, as you will experience no static problems on the feeding or receiving ends of your equipment.
This product is waterproof and very stain resistant which makes it great for menus, and can be washed and used repeatedly for placemat applications. It is durable and tear resistant but feeds, images, and handles print finishing processes like paper. Another great application is for short run digitally imaged custom wristbands, where the pliable, non-abrasive soft polyester is comfortable against skin. Other applications capitalizing on the durability and waterproof properties of Fusion Soft Polyester include maps, luggage tags, field manuals, football coach play sheets, and tree tags.
Fusion Rigid Polyester has a super smooth printing surface that yields outstanding image fidelity and toner adhesion. So don’t be afraid of demanding graphics, use Fusion Rigid Polyester when quality, strength and durability matter. Available in 5, 8 and 11 mil calipers, there is a Fusion Rigid Polyester caliper for any of your digital imaging needs.
The rigidity of the 8 and 11 mil calipers provides the snap of a heavy board stock, which makes Fusion Rigid Polyester a great choice for outdoor signs. Now you have a product for jobs that need to withstand outdoor weather conditions without having to laminate it. Imagine being able to do those jobs in-house, and turning them around in just minutes. With Fusion Rigid Polyester this is now possible.
Fusion Digital Satin Fabric is a coated one side woven satin polyester fabric that offers some very unique opportunities. Imagine a cloth-like fabric with excellent smoothness of hand that also runs great through your high speed digital equipment, and provides excellent image fidelity and toner adhesion. That’s now a reality with Fusion Digital Satin Fabric.
This product performs well during print finishing operations such as die cutting and grommeting. It is highly resistant to shrinking or curling and is also very resistant to degradation from rot, mildew and moisture. So it’s great for outdoor applications.
Some unique applications that Digital Satin Fabric has been used for include sewn in private labels for mattress manufacturing companies and custom event pennants. We can custom manufacture this product coated two sides if required. This product can be made with coatings to handle either high heat toner or HP Indigo applications.
So when you’re looking for vinyl paper that can be digitally imaged, please remember that although Fusion Digital Paper™ is not vinyl, it meets all the characteristics of vinyl such as being waterproof and durable, with excellent print fidelity, and in fact has greater resistance to heat and sunlight than vinyl paper.
