CANAPA Paper Technologies to Showcase its "Smart" Sublimation Papers

Taking its place in the FESPA Global Print Expo Fair which will be held in Munich, Germany on May 14 - 17, CANAPA Paper technologies will meet its visitors with the sublimation paper range it has developed according to textile manufacturers' needs.  

Aiming to respond to high-quality sublimation paper needs of textile print manufacturers who visit the show, CANAPA Paper Technologies will host its visitors this year at stand B6-D18. 

CANAPA's brand new identity
CANAPA Paper Technologies will meet FESPA visitors with its renewed corporate identity. The company’s new slogan “CApture NAture on PAper” is combining CANAPA’s nature-friendly and environmentalist manufacturing approach with the creative and innovative character of the textile sector it services. Focusing on a more innovative and sustainable quality mission, the company, with its new identity, is focusing on a more creative, innovative, higher quality, more environmentalist and sustainable manufacturing understanding with the sublimation transfer papers used in the textile printing sector. 

The “nature” expression used in CANAPA’s new identity has two different meanings. It represents the authenticity that comes from the nature of paper, creative power, quality obtained and being unique. On the other hand, it is also emphasizing CANAPA’s environment-friendly manufacturing. CANAPA sublimation papers are manufactured with a raw material acquired from industrial trees grown in the Scandinavian region. Paper raw materials — obtained from these forests only grown for industrial means and not harming the natural ecosystem — and also the transfer paper raw material is continuously obtained from the same forest. This way, CANAPA sublimation transfer papers always maintain the same quality.  This enables the textile print manufacturer to obtain the same print quality in all its productions and attain a standard and stable print quality. 

Meet the CANAPA Ventus and Vivus series
CANAPA’s product range is entirely renewed. The new “Ventus” and “Vivus” series sublimation transfer papers are offering high-quality solutions for different textile applications like ready to wear, sportswear, interior decoration, flags, home textiles and soft signage. Answering the needs of all digital textile print manufacturers with its different grammage, width and coating options, the product series guarantees high-quality stable prints with its fast drying period, high transfer rate and high ink absorption.  CANAPA Paper Technologies will meet visitors with its brand new corporate identity at FESPA 2019 and will introduce its 18 different sublimation papers throughout the fair. 

What do CANAPA sublimation papers offer textile print manufacturers?
The biggest advantage of CANAPA sublimation papers that comes forth is its stronger paper base structure compared to many of its equivalents in the market, its stable print quality, and its double layer coating technology. Tests done by research and development engineers prove that CANAPA transfer papers have stronger paper base features regarding measurement criteria such as bursting strength, bursting index, breaking strength and bending resistance compared to known European, Korean and Chinese brands. Moreover, CANAPA base papers having fewer additives shows that it has a purer paper structure and thus the rate of variance in paper quality is much less. 

Strong structural features of the base paper of CANAPA transfer papers correlate closely with the raw materials used in the manufacturing of CANAPA transfer papers and their manufacturing process. CANAPA sublimation transfer papers are manufactured from bleached pure cellulose and contain entirely prime fibers. Obtaining these fibers from slowly grown Scandinavian forests come forth as the primary component that strengthens the structure of the base paper used in the manufacturing of CANAPA transfer papers. 

The most important of the many advantages all the features provide is its elimination of the problems faced during printing.  Today, one of the most significant problems faced during printing is the wrinkling problem caused due to transfer paper not having a strong structure to carry a sufficient amount of ink.  The biggest problem the transfer paper which coils up because it cannot carry the ink is head strikes.  This causes the colliding head to leave a mark on the print and even worse, technical malfunctions which may require full replacement of print heads which cost thousands of dollars and also loss of time. 

One of the biggest advantages of CANAPA sublimation transfer papers is also ensuring these printing machines function on designs where the intense ink consumption is needed without facing any problems. The dense ink carrying ability of the strong base paper structure of CANAPA transfer papers prevents head strikes, thus preventing material waste and therefore increasing production capacity.
Don’t forget to visit B6-D18 at the FESPA global Print Expo Fair in order to get information on many other advantages CANAPA Paper Technologies offer and to examine CANAPA papers during printing.
