Excellent printability and handling

Dura-Bright’s uniform felt surface and larger range of ink compatibility than other types of plastic film offer a superior inking experience for screen printing, offset, flexographic, and commercial inkjet printing. It supports high resolution, dries quickly, resists static and does not stretch, making it exceptionally easy to handle and process, whether you’re binding, die cutting, folding, scoring, drilling, perforating or laser cutting.

It’s also an excellent surface for adhesive coatings, painting, laminating, hot foil stamping, and much more.

Even better, Dura-Bright is clean and safe. Made from 100% recyclable polypropylene, it’s phthalate-free, lead-free, and can be safely incinerated, producing no toxic chemicals or fumes when burnt.  It’s a great multi-use substitute for wood-based paper.
