Agfa Launches SYNAPS Synthetic Paper Protected Against Bacteria and Viruses

Today, Agfa announces the market launch of its SYNAPS Xerographic Matt (XM) synthetic paper that includes an agent which antagonizes the settlement and growth of bacteria and viruses on its surface.

The agent remains active for the entire life of the synthetic paper and protects also print areas that are covered with toner ink. Its efficiency up to 99.99% has been proven through independent ISO 20743 and ISO 18184 tests.

This new type of SYNAPS XM replaces the existing XM product range while fully preserving its excellent print quality, antistatic process behavior, and universal printer compatibility.
