DNS® color print is the latest development in Mondi’s professional printing portfolio. The new digital colour printing paper falls within the company’s offering of smooth high-white papers for a broad spectrum of applications that demand high-impact colour saturation.
The DNS® brand by international pulp and paper maker Mondi continues to grow with the launch of DNS® color print, the company’s latest development for the fast growing digital printing market. This latest paper offers customers the high whiteness level (170 CIE) characteristic of DNS® premium and DNS® high-speed inkjet, launched in 2010 and 2011 respectively. However, DNS® color print introduces an extra smooth surface to the list of features and benefits comprising the full brand portfolio.
The smooth finish combined with the paper’s high opacity allows for full colour reproduction for duplex printing. With far-reaching potential for print applications, DNS® color print is specially engineered for digital colour printing on laser printers, copiers, and digital colour presses. Moreover, DNS® color print is produced with ColorLok® Technology, which is a class of paper additives that visibly enhance the print quality of inkjet documents while providing faster drying times.
“The research and development for DNS® color print took place at Mondi Neusielder mill in Austria, where the paper is produced. Mondi Neusiedler has been in the paper making business for more than 200 years and has led the way in developing papers for digital printing for more than 20 years. Its reputation for high quality and innovation is well-earned and recognised by professionals in the paper industry,” said Johannes Klumpp, Marketing and Sales Director for Mondi Uncoated Fine Paper.
With a range of grammages from 80-300 g/m2 in A4, A3 (LG/SG) and SRA3 formats, versatility is a prime benefit for printers handling diverse applications from marketing collateral to invitations to business cards. DNS® color print is also suitable for preprint applications such as letterhead and office stationery.
DNS® color print is part of Mondi’s Green Range of sustainably produced papers that fulfil the leading environmental and social guidelines. It is FSC® certified and was awarded the EU Ecolabel as a product that is deemed to have a lesser impact on the environment than other similar products.
All Mondi Uncoated Fine Paper mills are certified FSC®, PEFC™, ISO 9001 (quality management) and ISO 14001 (environmental management system).
