Canapa Paper technologies will meet its visitors at FESPA Global Print Expo with the sublimation paper range it has developed according to needs of textile manufacturers. Aiming to respond to high-quality sublimation paper needs of textile print manufacturers who visit the show, Canapa Paper Technologies will host its visitors this year at the B6-D18 numbered stand.

Brand new identity

Canapa Paper Technologies this year will meet the FESPA visitors with its renewed corporate identity.  The company’s new slogan “CApture NAture on PAper” is combining the company’s nature-friendly and environmentalist manufacturing approach with the creative and innovative character of the textile sector it gives service to.  Focusing on a more innovative and sustainable quality mission, the company, with its new identity, is focusing on a more creative, innovative, higher quality, more environmentalist and sustainable manufacturing understanding with the sublimation transfer papers used in the textile printing sector.

“Nature” expression used in the new identity has two different meanings. While it represents the authenticity that comes from the nature of paper, creative power, quality obtained and being unique; on the other hand, it is also emphasizing Canapa’s environment-friendly manufacturing. Canapa’s sublimation papers are manufactured with a raw material acquired from industrial trees grown in Scandinavian region. Paper raw materials, obtained from these forests only grown for industrial means and not harming the natural ecosystem, and also the transfer paper raw material is continuously obtained from the same forest.  This way, sublimation transfer papers always maintain the same quality.  This enables the textile print manufacturer to obtain the same print quality in all its productions and attain a standard and stable print quality.

Meet the Ventus and Vivus series

Canapa’s product range is entirely renewed. The new “Ventus” and “Vivus” series sublimation transfer papers are offering high-quality solutions for different textile applications like ready to wear, sportswear, interior decoration, flags, home textiles and soft signage.  Answering the needs of all digital textile print manufacturers with its different grammage, width, and coating options, the product series guarantees high-quality stable prints with its fast drying period, high transfer rate and high ink absorption.  Canapa Paper Technologies will meet the visitors with its brand new corporate identity at FESPA 2019 and will introduce its 18 different sublimation papers to the visitors throughout the fair.

What do Canapa sublimation papers offer?

The biggest advantage of Canapa sublimation papers that comes forth is its stronger paper base structure compared to many of its equivalents in the market, its stable print quality, and its double layer coating technology.  Tests done by R&D engineers prove that these transfer papers have stronger paper base features regarding measurement criteria such as bursting strength, bursting index, breaking strength and bending resistance compared to known European, Korean and Chinese brands.  Moreover, the base papers having fewer additives show that it has a more pure paper structure and thus the rate of variance in paper quality is much less.

Strong structural features of the base paper of Canapa transfer papers correlate closely with the raw materials used in the manufacturing of the transfer papers and their manufacturing process.  Canapa sublimation transfer papers are manufactured from bleached pure cellulose and contain entirely prime fibers.  Obtaining these fibers from slowly grown Scandinavian forests come forth as the primary component that strengthens the structure of the base paper used in the manufacturing of the transfer papers.

The most important of the many advantages all the features provide is its elimination of the problems faced during printing.  Today, one of the most significant problems faced during printing is the wrinkling problem caused due to transfer paper not having a strong structure to carry a sufficient amount of ink.  The biggest problem the transfer paper which coils up because it cannot carry the ink is head strikes.  This causes the colliding head to leave a mark on the print and even worse, technical malfunctions which may require full replacement of print heads which cost thousands of dollars and also loss of time.

One of the biggest advantages of Canapa sublimation transfer papers are also ensuring these printing machines to function on designs where the intense ink consumption is needed without facing any problems. Dense ink carrying ability of strong base paper structure of the transfer papers prevent head strikes, thus; prevent material waste and therefore increase production capacity.
