New high-speed inkjet papers that have the character of coated woodfree paper


The new JET-SPEED® web press papers developed by the Osnabrück-based Felix Schoeller Group offer the market a genuine alternative to South African appi’s JAZ range.The new papers were developed in conjunction with HP for use on their PageWide Web Presses. They feature HP‘s ColorPRO Technology, which enables them to meet HP’s high quality standards. ColorPRO Technology means that Felix Schoeller’spapers do not need to be pre-treated but can be directly printed using water-based pigmented inks. Their performance on HP printers is outstanding. As well as high whiteness, with high ink application the papers produce better print quality with higher optical densities and a larger colour gamut than standard woodfree papers.

The papers in the JET-SPEED® web press range are all about pin-sharp details and creating the look and feel of coated woodfree paper, combined with full colour inkjet functionality and outstanding print properties, brilliant colours and sharp line definition.

“We are proud of the fact that in a very short space of time we – in conjunction with HP, our partner of many years – have developed a top-quality, high-speed inkjet paper. It enables us to develop new markets and convince new customers of the quality of our products,” Thomas Leifert, head of Felix Schoeller’s Digital Media Business Unit, stresses.

“As a leading provider of digital papers for multiple print platforms, Felix Schoeller knows how to deliver unique products that meet end-user demand, “said Matthew Nuth, director of large-format graphics medias and coatings with HP. “The Felix Schoeller portfolio of inkjet- optimized uncoated and coated papers with ColorPRO Technology provides our customers with a wide variety of media for multiple applications.”

JET-SPEED® web press papers are used for high-end small print runs or customised applications such as mail shots, full-colour brochures and marketing materials. Samples of the new pigment-coated inkjet papers are available on request. The products are available in grammages of 90, 115, 130 and 150 g/m² in either gloss or silk surface.
