Ideally suited for use anytime printed materials will be subjected to frequent handling or extreme environmental conditions, REVLAR synthetic paper is ultra-durable. In addition to being available for use with HP Indigo presses, REVLAR is also compatible with high volume digital printers, home and office digital copiers/printers, flexographic and offset printer equipment.

REVLAR for HP Indigo has a proprietary coating that offers a new standard for ink adhesion on Indigo presses (even at lower temperatures) and a complete elimination of static build up both through the press and in the bindery. The result is better print quality, less warping and curling, fewer printer jams and faster production.
