So, if it isn’t synthetic, what is it?

PaperTyger products are a range of high quality, technologically advanced laminated papers with a focus on cost consciousness. Our laminated papers are manufactured using a patented, solvent-free laminating process to provide an innovative alternative to synthetic papers and other tear resistant products.  

All PaperTyger papers are designed with durability in mind. Our range positively contributes to numerous applications where a durable product is required. In fact, they provide the durability of synthetic products, but with the significant printing and converting advantages of real paper. The durability is a result of our patented paper/film/paper laminating process that provides the toughness of a synthetic sheet with the benefit of an uncoated paper printing surface. This makes our PaperTyger range uniquely suitable for digital, laser and conventional printers.
