“Often times, two papers look the same but can have very different results based on their chemistry and physical properties, as well as the inkjet printing technologies being used,” noted Don Burns, Kodak’s Business Development Director for Media. “We’re using our knowledge of imaging science and surface science to support our customers’ business. This system makes it easier for PROSPER Press owners to choose the best substrate and achieve outstanding inkjet results.”
Hundreds of papers are currently being evaluated, and paper manufacturers continue to improve surface quality and economics through what they learn. The program, which includes rigorous testing, is designed for ISO compliance and is rolling out globally throughout the year.
