Antalis is now supplying Invercote Creato, a 380gsm paperboard which the company says will open up new opportunities for digital printers and designers.

The substrate, which is produced by Iggesund at its mill in Sweden, has been successfully tested on liquid toner HP Indigo 5000, 7000 ,10000, 12000 and 30000 series and dry toner Xerox iGen 5,Xerox Iridesse and Ricoh C9200 machines. Antalis says that it is lighter than products with a comparative thickness, but still achieves ‘maximum stiffness.’

Steve Chappell, graphics board development manager at Antalis, commented, ‘Invercote Creato is available in a wide range of weights and sizes, with the 380gsm providing the possibility of opening up new business opportunities for printers and designers by helping them push the frontiers of luxury packaging design.

‘The dimensional stability of this two-sided, multi-layered product makes it an excellent choice for multi-step processing, while its lightfastness resistance ensures consistent colour representation and no yellowing. These characteristics, along with its thickness and stiffness make it an ideal choice for luxury packaging as well as a wide range of other graphic packaging applications, including cosmetics, med tech, food and confectionary.’
