Ruff N' Tuff, a Water-Resistant Paper
for inkjet & Laser printers
Waterproof papers are synthetically engineered to survive
persistent contact with water. These usually provide other related
synthetic paper qualities such as tear-resistance and chemical and grease
resistance. By comparison, water-resistant papers will survive only
light contact with water and other liquid residues.
There is a spectrum of waterproof and water-resistant papers
available. For practical purposes, these include two
"industrial-strength" waterproof paper choices, equally competitive, and largely differentiated by
appearance. These are maximum performance waterproof papers. As a
final option the less costly choice is a water-resistant paper with its
own twist: a synthetic paper hybrid that feels like real paper, also differentiating itself
by its unique feel and appearance.

a go-anywhere, do-anything kind of paper made possible by it's advanced
synthetic composition. Power Paper is a serious hi-performance
synthetic paper with an excellent price-to-performance ratio for this category
of performance that does not compromise its flexibility. The range of
target machines and applications includes inkjet, laser, color laser and
commercial offset printing, lamination, folding, grommeting, stapling and
Waterproof Printing... even on Inkjet Printers
inkjet printers use aqueous-based inks which are susceptible to running
and fading on the printed page when wet, like watercolor. The secret
of Power Paper's ability to make your inkjet prints waterproof occurs on
the molecular level. It allows the ink droplets to more tightly bond
with the surface than is possible with normal fiber-based papers.
Power Paper uses what can be simply described as an advanced
"microporous" composition which aids the bonding process...making it
far more difficult for a splashing of water to wrestle the ink (or toner)
away from the page.
Paper: What else does it do?
In addition to providing a thorough solution for waterproof papers, Power
Paper is a well-rounded synthetic paper: tear-resistant, chemical and
grease-resistant, a single-layered sheet, excellent printing quality
especially for a synthetic paper, and it is very flexible for other
post-printing operations such as laminating.
