Antalis to supply Pretex
Antalis has added a further dimension to its extensive portfolio of specialist substrates with an exclusive agreement for the UK distribution of Pretex, a robust and durable synthetically impregnated paper manufactured by Neenah Lahnstein.
A combination of selected pulp impregnated with polyamide and polyester fibres, gives Pretex its unique textured finish and considerable strength and durability, thus enabling it to withstand conditions that would damage more conventional types of paper.
The product’s distinctive properties are the result of a special multi-step process, where synthetic fibres are added to the wet end of the substrate to reinforce the sheet, before it is impregnated with a blend of latex and other binders.Providing superior dimensional stability and water resistance.
Water, temperature, age and chemical/solvent resistant, Pretex is also colourfast, flexible and conformable, making it ideal for use in a wide selection of internal and external applications, ranging from maps, charts and athletic runner bibs, to pressure-sensitive labels, plus educational and promotional collateral
Pretex is available in a wide selection of grammages from 90gsm up to 300gsm.
Also available from Antalis from the Neenah Lahenstein range is Cuturon, a versatile and high-quality nonwoven alternative to textiles, and Neobond, a synthetic fibre paper with a unique feel and extreme durability.
