Arjowiggins Graphic, the leading manufacturer of environmental paper solutions, is partnering with Landa at Drupa 2016 to demonstrate the print performance of recycled paper.

Arjowiggins Graphic is providing 32 tonnes of Cocoon Gloss 100% bright white recycled paper in B1 for use by Landa during the print demonstrations of the Landa S10 Nanographic Printing® Press at Drupa, the world’s leading trade fair for print. The event takes place in Dusseldorf, Germany from 31 May to 10 June.

Ideal for printing all graphical applications including brochures, direct mail, menus and leaflets, Cocoon Gloss is an outstanding paper to demonstrate the high-level print quality that can be achieved with high-end recycled paper.

Landa-EBSJean Charles Monange, Sales and Marketing Director of Arjowiggins Graphic says

“Today’s high white recycled papers are completely comparable in appearance and performance to virgin fibre products so there is no compromise whatsoever by using recycled products. Using some of the newest printing technology available on the market, we’ll be able to demonstrate this directly to prospective customers in real-time at one of our most important industry events. Our papers also enable organizations to promote a very strong environment message”.

The Landa Nanographic Printing® process enables the Landa presses to print on Arjowiggins Cocoon Gloss and other off-the-shelf ssubstrates without pre-treatment. In addition, the ultra-thin nature of its printed images enables Nanography® to preserve the texture and gloss of the underlying substrate.

Gilad Tzori, VP Product Strategy at Landa says:

“Support for recycled substrates is a key tenet of our environmental policy. By running Cocoon Gloss 100% recycled paper on our Landa S10 Nanographic Printing® Press, we can significantly reduce our environmental impact, saving up to 30 tons of landfill waste, 48 tons of wood and 4 tons of CO2 and greenhouse gases.”

Customers using Arjowiggins Graphic paper on Landa presses benefit from the industry leading Eco-Calculator. It provides users of recycled paper with an ‘Environmental Benefit Statement’ (EBS) that shows the amount of landfill, CO2 and greenhouse gases, water, electricity and wood that have been saved by opting to use Arjowiggins Graphic recycled paper over paper produced from virgin fibres. It also allows customers to feature the acclaimed WWF logo as part of their Environmental Benefit Statement.
