Finch Paper announces new inkjet web paper specific for dye-based systems

Thursday, April 21, 2011

Press release from the issuing company

Glens Falls, NY - Finch Paper today debuts Finch dyeJet for precision printing on dye-based inkjet systems, making the announcement in concert with the unveiling of its comprehensive digital paper program. Finch dyeJet completes the digital paper product line that already includes Finch Fine iD for HP Indigo (liquid toner) presses, and the already highly-acclaimed Finch Inkjet Pi for pigmented inkjet systems.

The Finch dyeJet revolution

Paper manufacturers have long been challenged with drying issues associated with dye-based inks in the burgeoning high speed inkjet segment.  Finch has solved the issue with a specially–engineered paper formulation including a surface treatment to maximize ink density and absorption, resulting in instantaneous drying at speeds as high as 750 ft./m.

Finch dyeJet's smooth surface provides brilliant full color, CMYK digital printing.  It delivers better print densities for improved response rates, and fast-drying for increased production rates. Finch dyeJet features the stability and strength necessary for downstream perforating, folding and inserting applications.

Most commercial inkjet presses that incorporate dye-based inks are best matched with Finch dyeJet. These include, but are not limited to: Screen Truepress Jet520, InfoPrint 5000, Kodak Versamark, Océ JetStream 2200 and 3300.

Phil Hart, Finch Paper Director of Product Marketing, says, "Finch is proud to continue to serve the needs of the expanding digital printing marketplace. After the introduction of Finch Inkjet Pi last fall, our growing R&D team has again produced a superior uncoated substrate, this time balancing its focus on dye-based applications."

Finch offers a variety of roll sizes and custom solutions to fit specific application and print engine needs.
