Looking for something that is more durable than standard paper?

TriDura durable paper often replaces standard paper because it feels and prints like paper but is durable enough to withstand water and is tear-resistant.

Because of the unique construction of paper/polymer/paper, TriDura will run on almost any printer and also provides compatibility with flexo, litho offset, laser, digital, UV and inkjet printing.

The Anatomy of TriDura Durable Paper

TriDura durable paper is layered paper with a synthetic core making it tolerant to water and tear-resistant. A polymer film core allows the durability of synthetic paper with the look and feel of regular paper.

Anatomy of TriDura

TriDura combines the image quality, foldability and printability of standard paper with the durability and resilience unmatched by any standard paper.
