Georgia-Pacific Spectrum Web Inkjet

HP (Palo Alto, CA) announces a new ColorPRO Technology licensing agreement with Georgia-Pacific Communication Papers (Atlanta) and the launch of a new ColorPRO media for use with the HP T300 Color Inkjet Web Press.

Georgia-Pacific's new Spectrum Web Inkjet roll media, featuring ColorPRO Technology, are designed to deliver visibly improved print quality in pigment-ink inkjet systems, providing high-performance results in book publishing, graphic communications and variable-data print applications. Spectrum Web Inkjet provides additional value for HP T300 users, giving them the flexibility to cost-effectively print with higher coverage on uncoated media.

ColorPRO Technology represents a quality standard for color excellence in digital printing based on a set of paper enhancement technologies and strictly defined performance specifications. Papers with ColorPRO Technology deliver visibly enhanced print quality including more striking colors, crisper text and graphics, and higher-contrast blacks when compared to standard, uncoated offset and untreated bond papers.

Spectrum Web Inkjet with ColorPRO Technology is now available for purchase in the United States from Georgia-Pacific. Contact Jim Lagerbloom at jalagerb@gapac.com or visit www.gp.com.

Appleton Coated media

HP also recently announced a program with Appleton Coated LLC (Kimberly, WI) in the development of new coated papers for the HP T300 Color Inkjet Web Press.

Appleton Coated will manufacture papers with matte and dull finishes designed for use in textbooks and other publications, direct mail and additional commercial printing applications. The papers from Appleton Coated are scheduled for mid-2010 availability in North America.

HP and Appleton Coated customized new papers for use with the HP T300 based on a new HP-developed coating technology. The technology, which Appleton Coated uses in its Combined Locks, WI, papermaking facility, makes water-based pigment inks adhere to the surface of coated media during high-speed production printing operations.

The companies are testing the media to measure performance in various product applications while finalizing product specifications.
