Sihl launches new solvent paper

Sihl has launched a new Solvent Photo Paper PE240, which is suitable for solvent including eco-solvent printers but can also be used with latex and UV inks. It has a surface weight of 240gsm and thickness of 235µm. It’s a glossy paper with a solvent-swellable coating and Sihl claims that it is suitable for printing with modern metallic inks. It has good scratch resistance and can be sprayed with cleaning materials and wiped clean.
Ian Turnbull, Operations Director of Sihl Direct UK, comments, “The bright white, double-sided PE coated paper delivers the basis for the high gloss surface and leaves commercial graphics, as well as photos, radiating in a perfect sheen.”
It’s available in roll format 1372 mm (54“) wide and 30m long.

You can license the articles from Printing and Manufacturing Journal to reproduce in other publications. I generally charge around £150 per article but I’m open to discussing this for each title, particularly for publishers that want to use multiple stories. I can provide high res versions of images for print publications.

I’m used to working with overseas publishers and am registered for VAT with the UK’s HMRC tax authority but obviously won’t charge VAT to companies outside the UK. You can find further details and a licensing form from this page, or just contact me directly here.
