VIENNA , April 10, 2014 (press release) – HSI 2.0 offers more colours, increased productivity, higher competitiveness

The international packaging and paper group Mondi introduces its new high-speed inkjet portfolio 2.0, which features a larger colour gamut, increased opacity, and new grammages of 60, 70 and 230 g/m².

With its high-speed inkjet (HSI) portfolio 2.0 Mondi has further developed and optimized the paper manufacturing of its high-speed inkjet portfolio, which brings a number of benefits to printers and end-users. The larger colour gamut in critical colour areas, such as reds, compensates the magenta weakness of current high-speed inkjet systems and thereby enables improved accuracy when it comes to logos or reproduction of images. The increased colour gamut also results in a potential ink savings for printers, reducing costs and increasing printers’ competitiveness on the market.

"Mondi has listened to the needs of its customers and in close cooperation identified current short-comings of the high-speed inkjet technology, such as insufficient red colour gamut or the lack of competitiveness against certain offset print jobs. By perfecting our inkjet production process we are now able to offer optimized Mondi high-speed inkjet paper grades. This means more colours, more potential savings, more productivity and higher competitiveness," said Johannes Klumpp, Marketing & Sales Director, Mondi Uncoated Fine Paper.

Another key benefit of Mondi’s new, fully treated high-speed inkjet grades is trouble-free duplex printing due to the increased opacity (non-see-through). In the case of DNS® high-speed inkjet CF/NF* the opacity of 80 g/m² is now equal to the current standard of 100 g/m². No reel joins are also guaranteed for flawless runability and optimal productivity of high-speed inkjet equipment.

The HSI 2.0 portfolio features new grammages of 60, 70 and up to as 230 g/m², enabling printers to take their equipment to new areas of print applications, such as catalogues, flyers or post cards.

Mondi’s grades DNS® high-speed inkjet CF has also been recognised as "good" deinkable according to INGEDE test method 11 (in combination with Canon Océ pigment inks). DNS® premium has also been successfully tested for deinkability.

"The proven deinkability of high-speed inkjet pigment inks ensures the future success of this digital printing technology with Mondi’s grades," concluded Klumpp.
