Under the product name of CG Isoproof 200, printing services specialist ColorGATE is now putting a semi-matte, high-end proof paper completely without optical brighteners onto the market that has been specially developed for binding contract proofing and competent color management. Certified by Fogra Forschungsgesellschaft Druck e. V., CG Isoproof 200 meets the requirements of ISO 12647-7:2007 at consistently high levels of quality. The paper optimized for all ColorGATE Product Solutions equipped with proof technology makes a convincing show with its brilliant color reproduction and finest color nuances even in dark and shaded areas and exceeds the color space of the ISO-coated v2 (ECI) offset and gravure printing.
"The delta E color distance of the media white point measured to the reference white point is 0.3," said Thomas Kirschner, managing director, ColorGATE.
Due to its microporous surface, CG Isoproof 200 exhibits excellent drying properties as well as outstanding water and ageing resistance. Even when a high level of ink is used, excellent flatness can still be guaranteed, ColorGATE continues. With a paper weight of 200 gsm, CG Isoproof 200 is available from all authorized sales partners as roll goods (30 meters in length) from 17 inches (43,2 cm) to 44 inches (111,8 cm) wide as well as sheet goods in DIN A3+ format (33,0 cm × 48,3 cm). In addition to high-quality DeviceLinks, all ColorGATE Product Solutions with proof technology, like Proofgate 6 and Photogate 6, now also automatically include CG Isoproof 200 profiles.
"As a leading supplier in the field of printing services and color management, we also take a very special interest in the properties of different printing substrates and the way in which they interact with inks and printing systems," said Kirschner, explaining the concept of the new ColorGATE Media seal of quality. In the future, this signet will be borne by selected special products, some of which are manufactured exclusively according to ColorGATE specifications. The internationally active company vouches for the consistently high quality and superior material properties of these products. In addition to the Fogra-certified CG Isoproof 200 proof paper, the ColorGATE media program currently covers CG Screenfilm for stencil production in screen printing with the Filmgate RIP-Software, CG Canvas for high-quality canvas printing and the innovative CG Texflex display solution.
