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.
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.
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.
