Real Paper as Strong as Plastic...
Safeguard your important documents on a durable paper that is indistinguishable from normal fiber-based paper. This non-tear paper is uncoated and does not feel like plastic. It is tear-resistant, grease-resistant and water-resistant.
Ruff N Tuff is a worthy lower-cost alternative if you are searching for weatherproof paper solutions. A more robust waterproof paper is available in Power Paper.
Easy to use.
“Ruff ‘N Tuff” non-tear paper does not compromise printing quality and feeding performance, so it is as easy to use as traditional fiber-based paper.
It has a triple-layered composition, with a plastic-based inner layer for tear resistance. Ruff N Tuff is an excellent tear resistant paper.
High Performance Layers are ideal for protecting outdoor documents against incidental exposure to water, dirt.
Combined with the enhanced tear-resistance of the inner, plastic layer, Ruff N Tuff is a well-rounded enhanced paper effective for a wide range of applications.
Typical applications: Important records, outdoor documents (for incidental exposure), heavily-used reference sheets and checklists, maps, menus, tags, and more. Works well with folded applications.
Ruff N Tuff can be laminated for most practical purposes without issue. For enhanced strength, particularly for security-related items or long-lasting, permanent lamination applications, such as id cards, refer to Power Paper which has a far greater lamination bonding strength.
3-hole punched manuals.
Hands-on 3-ring binder testing shows Ruff N Tuff paper is several times stronger than normal 3-hole punched binder paper. It is not designed specifically to counter act pullout from ring binders like that of hole-reinforced papers which typically use a mylar strip to strengthen the holes. But, Ruff N Tuff will not tear nearly as easily from a binder as 24 lb. hole-punched copy paper.
The ideal Ruff 'n Tuff application is single-sheet, stapled, or folded documents which experience frequent changing of hands, heavy-handling, or repeated use.
