For this innovative product development, UPM Raflatac collaborated with a number of industry-leading printing press manufacturers to ensure it would achieve excellent print quality on their machines, including Mark Andy.
UPM Raflatac digital product manager Nat Davis said: "UPM Raflatac's new Premium Gloss UVI has incredible print definition and fine details using our UV ink-jet Digital Series hybrid press.
"It's a great addition to our extensive qualified and recommended substrates. Congratulations to UPM Raflatac for bringing this solution to market; we are very happy to have been able to collaborate on its development."
UPM Raflatac Americas R&D director Dr Kirit Naik said: "With our new Premium Gloss UVI, we have solved the industry-wide challenge for semi-gloss paper on UV ink-jet presses.
"We could not have developed this innovative, never-before-seen solution without the valuable help from OEMs like Mark Andy, who let us perform a number of print trials on their equipment."
