Agfa launches SYNAPS synthetic paper protected against bacteria and viruses
Mortsel, Belgium | November 16, 2021 9:00 AM CET
Today, Agfa announces the market launch of its SYNAPS Xerographic Matt (XM) synthetic paper that includes an agent which antagonizes the settlement and growth of bacteria and viruses on its surface.
The agent remains active for the entire life of the synthetic paper and protects also print areas that are covered with toner ink. Its efficiency up to 99,99% has been proven through independent ISO 20743 and ISO 18184 tests.
This new type of SYNAPS XM replaces the existing XM product range while fully preserving its excellent print quality, antistatic process behavior and universal printer compatibility.

SYNAPS is a polyester-based print media developed, manufactured and marketed by Agfa. It comes in two versions based on distinct print technology for offset and electro-ink (SYNAPS OM) and xerography or dry toner (SYNAPS XM). Both OM and XM products are available in a variety of thicknesses and OM includes also a self-adhesive type. The use of SYNAPS is driven by applications that require indoor or outdoor durability without the need for lamination, such as tags, signage, labels, posters, menu cards.
