WHERE TO BUY

SYNAPS OM, OM as in Offset Matt, is a white opaque, high grade polyester synthetic paper that is resistant to water and tearing without lamination.

SYNAPS OM has a double sided coating for printing in a variety of techniques and allows for using standard offset inks whereas other synthetics require more expensive oxidative inks and cause idle time when switching between inks. Its proprietary coating formulation ensures extremely fast ink drying which makes SYNAPS OM a best-in-class media in terms of quality and productivity even in most demanding environments.

SYNAPS OM90F was developed to meet the requirements of folding applications like book sections and maps. It has low thickness and density in order to limit volume and weight of the finished product. It offers the same print efficiency and compatibility as all other types of the SYNAPS OM portfolio but differentiates by great folding behaviour and efficient processing on standard folding equipment.
