Teslin synthetic printing sheet is truly a unique material that looks, prints and fabricates like paper, but is durable like plastic film. A microporous structure makes Teslin sheet absorptive yet water-resistant, soft but strong, and highly printable and durable.
Teslin sheet is a dimensionally stable, highly filled, single layer, microporous film. It is polyolefin-based with 60% of its weight comprised of non-abrasive filler and 65% of its volume comprised of air. The porous, uncoated nature of Teslin sheet allows inks, adhesives, coatings and laminating films to penetrate into its structure to form strong anchor points with the substrate. Although fluid may penetrate, there is excellent holdout of pigment particles on the surface.
A wide range of printing and fabricating techniques are compatible with Teslin sheet. It can be printed or imaged with offset, monochrome laser, color laser, flexography, gravure, letterpress, intaglio, thermal transfer, ink jet, and screen-printing processes. A number of finishing techniques and fabricating methods can also be used with Teslin sheet, including perforating, punching, folding, sewing and grommeting, and foil stamping and embossing.
Teslin sheet is bright white-the same attractive appearance as other high quality, matte finish papers. Opacity is excellent, even at low weights and thicknesses.
What is Teslin synthetic printing sheet?
Teslin sheet is a white, porous, highly filled film that features unique characteristics printable, durable, waterproof, secure, breathable, and adaptable. Its microporous composition ensures high print definition and excellent holdout of pigment particles. If you have ever been apprehensive of printing on synthetic sheet, Teslin sheet is for you!
Why use Teslin sheet?
Teslin sheet offers users durability, printability and versatility. Teslin sheet forms tough, durable bonds with laminating films that are 600 percent stronger than coated papers or other synthetic stocks. Teslin sheet is water, chemical, abrasion, and tear-resistant, requiring no edge seal to be durable. And, bonds that were meant to last, create images that endure over time. Teslin sheet is extremely printable-producing rich, vivid, high quality graphics through both conventional printing methods and digital imaging.
