Relyco REVLAR Waterproof Paper Certified for Use on Kodak NexPress Digital Production Color Presses

Rochester Institute of Technology Printing Application Qualifies REVLAR as Approved Kodak Substrate

DOVER, NH--(Marketwire - March 23, 2011) - Relyco, a leading provider of value-added business printing and payment solutions, today announced that its REVLAR waterproof paper has been certified by the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) Printing Applications Laboratory as a qualified substrate for use on Kodak NexPress Digital Production Color Presses.

RIT tested Relyco's REVLAR 4.7 mil waterproof paper by conducting a number of evaluations to determine the optimum engine dependent settings. Selection criteria for the different settings are based upon: DryInk adhesion, color density, overall image quality, sufficient discharging, and no artifacts such as excessive curl or blistering. RIT found that REVLAR functioned as expected under these evaluation conditions and qualified it for the Kodak NexPress 2100 Plus through the Kodak NexPress SE3600 platforms.

"This is great news for Relyco as it opens up a significant market for our REVLAR waterproof paper products," said Bruce Steinberg, senior vice president of sales at Relyco. "The superior image quality of the Kodak NexPress platforms combined with our 'virtually indestructible' REVLAR paper delivers a unique, durable solution for thousands of applications that outperforms lamination and is a much more cost-effective alternative."

Fully laser-compatible REVLAR combines the image quality and printability of standard paper with a durability and resilience unmatched by any other product. REVLAR laser paper is durable and weatherproof as well as impervious to grease and chemicals, and designed to withstand high and low temperature fluctuations. Unlike other papers, REVLAR is made of synthetic materials (polyester) that enable its extreme performance in adverse conditions.
