Ideal for special applications where normal paper is simply not robust enough. Where paper comes into contact with moisture, for example. We use selected pulps and synthetic fibres (polyamide and polyester) in the manufacturing process. A special impregnation gives the paper the required strengths.
pretex® is available with double-sided coating (Standard) and uncoated (Copy+Laser).
We also supply:
an extra robust grade with double-sided coating and a higher proportion of synthetic fibres
grades with single-sided coating for labels and special applications on request
good light and colour fastness
withstands heavy mechanical stresses in wet and dry states
very good resistance to ageing
high level of temperature resistance
resistant to many chemicals and solvents
suitable for direct food contact (pretex® food)
conventional and recreational maps
educational posters and wall charts
outdoor charts, posters, large-format advertising
pennants, carrier bags, brochures and envelopes
construction material labels
menus and place mats, ID documents
resin impregnation in the wood-based materials industry
punching (except crown punching)
embossing (e.g. blind or hot foil stamping)
pretex® can also be provided with security features (fluorescent and non-fluorescent fibres).
Safe in contact with food:
pretex® food is approved for direct contact with food. The white pretex® grades are safe for indirect food contact. This also applies to accidental, brief periods of direct contact.
We will be pleased to provide you with the relevant ISEGA-certificates on request.
Ageing and UV resistance:
The coated pretex® grades are resistant to ageing in compliance with DIN EN ISO 9706 and DIN 6738. The uncoated grades are resistant to ageing in compliance with DIN 6738. In addition, pretex® also has high UV resistance. We do not use optical brighteners.
Disposal and compostability:
pretex® is partially biodegradeable. pretex® decomposes when biologically treated. The synthetic elements do not disintegrate, however, so that no marketable compost is produced.
On request, pretex® grades are FSC® certified available.
