Pulp-coloured papers and boards made with 40% CTMP fibres, 20% recycled fibres, 15% cotton fibres and 25% pure environmentally friendly ECF fibres, FSC® certified. The cotton fibres create roughness to the surface, and pure cellulose fibres add volume and strength, making it ideal for all packaging applications.


Applications of Fedrigoni Materica

Materica  is  ideal  for  coordinated  graphic  materials,  covers,  inserts, brochures, portfolios and converting products.

Printing suggestions

Fedrigoni Materica can be used without problems with the main printing systems: letterpress,   offset,   blind   embossing,   hot   foil   stamping,   thermography  and  screen  printing.  The  macro-porous  surface  suggests the use of oxidative drying inks.

Converting suggestions

Varnishing and plastic laminating must be assessed in advance. The  varnishing  coated  with  an  offset  machine  is  almost  fully  absorbed  and  therefore  does  not  improve  gloss  or  protection.  Screen-printing  varnishing  achieves  better  results,  although  it  is  often  necessary  to  perform  two  shots  to  achieve  a  distinctly  evident result. The surface roughness typical of uncoated papers may give rise to micro defects with plastic laminating caused by incomplete adhesion of the film to the substrate.Good results with major processing operations such as: cutting, die-cutting, scoring, folding and glueing.For  packaging  or  in  book  publishing,  we  recommend  to  ensure  the directions of the fibres runs in parallel with the main folds.
