The product is manufactured by Felix Schoeller Digital Media of Osnabrück Germany and is named Jet-Speed Chromegloss 95, and is available for sale globally.

The product is bright white 95 gsm, instant dry, water resistant, as well as dye and pigment compatible. The product is now being tested by most of the printer OEM’s and is being qualified for use in their printers. Profiles should be available as one of the printer settings.
