Because of its manufacturing process, PaperTyger looks, feels and performs like paper – with added durable resistance to tearing, moisture and greasy substances. Typically, synthetic papers require special coatings, inks, settings, plates and have prolonged drying times. Therefore, our paper/film/paper is a preferred choice for applications requiring durability where the product isn’t exposed to the elements for prolonged periods. Our laminating method requires no ovens to cure or burn off solvents and doesn’t use water-based adhesives either, which means our laminated papers are more stable.
