WHAT MAKES OUR PRODUCTS SO UNIQUE?

General Properties of Columbus Products

Smooth Surface:
The Machine Glazed (MG) substrate provides the basis for a smooth coated
sheet with excellent flexographic and gravure printability.

Bulkiness:
The fully coated MG sheet has considerable compressibility which contributes significantly to flexographic and rotogravure printability as well as to fold crack resistance.  The Bulkiness also lends itself to excellent embossing results.

Toughness:
Excellent tear and tensile properties because of the high quality pulps used, result in excellent runnability through almost every kind of flexo, gravure, packaging or labeling equipment utilizing paper.

Flexibility:
Caliper for caliper the sheet is somewhat more flexible than supercalendered papers
because of its low density, flexible coatings, and the absence of starch size surface treatment.

Printability:
The smooth coated surface is very compatible with most solvent and aqueous
based inks in flexographic and rotogravure printing. Trapping, ink and varnish holdout properties
are usually excellent.

Internal Bond:
The sheet has a relatively low internal bond which contributes to its flexibility, fold crack resistance, general toughness and machine runnability.  However, this very property could prove to be a problem with high tack printing processes.  Internal bond can be enhanced to some extent by wet end strength additives if needed.

Curl:
Curl is usually not a problem since the backside of the sheet gets a functional coating which helps to balance the sheet and stabilize curl.

Gluability:
The products have been used with a variety of gums, dextrins, synthetic adhesives, cold melts and hot melts with excellent results.
