Virtually Indestructible Waterproof Paper

Ideally suited for use anytime printed materials will be subject to frequent handling or extreme environmental conditions, REVLAR waterproof paper is waterproof, tear-proof and durable, as well as impervious to grease and chemicals, and designed to withstand high and low temperature fluctuations.

Plus, REVLAR offers the image quality and printability of standard paper and can be scored, punched or die cut as needed, making it valuable for thousands of applications.


How Tough is REVLAR Waterproof Paper?

REVLAR is so durable that it passed U.S. Army tests for use in Afghanistan & Iraq as field manuals — tests included being run over by a tank! In fact, U.S. Navy Submarine Manuals are printed on REVLAR – it’s that tough!

Laser-compatible, waterproof and weatherproof REVLAR offers the image quality and printability of standard paper and can be folded, punched or die cut as needed, making it valuable for thousands of applications across all industries—including hospitality, retail, education, healthcare and government.


REVLAR comes in sheets, rolls or in label format (labels both permanent and low-tack). Far superior to cheaper, knock-off synthetic papers, it is the original and only synthetic paper to be certified by the leading digital press manufacturers and we guarantee every order.

Client Stories

REVLAR was innovative and creative. It was also weather resistant and durable enough to withstand use around the pool and in the club; plus it was affordable enough to align with the client’s budget. Importantly, as the vendor who would produce the ‘Green Valley Cash,’ we appreciated that REVLAR was available in a range of thicknesses, colors, and finishes and could hold ink with traditional or digital printing.
