UPM Raflatac's recently launched Premium Gloss UVI product is now the highest quality premium-gloss paper labelstock for UV ink-jet printing on the market. 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's new Premium Gloss UVI has incredible print definition and fine details using our UV ink-jet Digital Series hybrid press," says Nat Davis, Digital Product Manager, Mark Andy. "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."


"With our new Premium Gloss UVI, we have solved the industry-wide challenge for semi-gloss paper on UV ink-jet presses," says Kirit Naik, PhD, MBA, R&D Director, Americas, UPM Raflatac. "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."
