Arjowiggins launches Powercoat paper facilitating integration of electronic functionality and printed graphics

December 19, 2012 - 16:42

PARIS, Dec. 3, 2012 (Press Release) -Today sees the launch of Powercoat®, a remarkable paper that facilitates the seamless integration of electronic functionality and printed graphics. This ground-breaking paper facilitates a whole range of electronic possibilities for paper, from embedded RFID tags to more intelligent functionalities. This opens up a world of possibilities in packaging, advertising and other industries where there is a cross-over between the real and the virtual.

The paper uses existing pressroom environments and processes. It can withstand the high temperatures required for low-resistance silver ink without the discolouration experienced by other papers on the market.

Its natural properties and incredible smoothness, without any plastic content, makes more efficient use of expensive chemicals and inks and is 100% recyclable, biodegradable and FSC certified. This allows not only tremendous saving on the cost of production but also a significant reduction of the environmental impact.

This latest innovation from Arjowiggins Creative Papers is sure to revolutionize the world of design and open up a world of truly unique possibilities. Designers can look forward to outstanding and exciting applications that truly push the limits of design. Intelligent functionality meets paper - the future is here!

Arjowiggins Creative Papers will be launching its new Powercoat® product at the Printed Electronics USA 2012 (hosted by IDTechEx) show in Santa Clara, California on 5-6th December 2012 at booth #K01. The team will showcase the unique benefits of this new product through live printing demonstrations on the latest technology from Ceradrop, an equipment manufacturer specialized in developing powerful inkjet printers for printed electronics printers, and will be on hand to answer any questions.
