Do sharper & bolder prints have to come at the expense of whiteness?

WHAT WE LOVE:

  • Paper that is white and bright
  • Prints that are sharp and vibrant with colors

BUT DID YOU KNOW?

  • The additive that allows sharper & bolder prints suppresses the optical brightening agent used to make paper whiter…
  • …leading to wastage of raw materials during the production process

  3. ENHANCED – IT’S OUR NATURE TO ADD ANOTHER LEVEL OF VALUE
    Your innovation is critical. Additional effects, functionalities and aesthetics give additional value, helping consumers to achieve their goals, for a life enhanced
