Water-Resistant and Laser-Printable BO-PET-Film
optimont® Syntheticpaper combines two advantages in one product: the printability of paper and the physical robustness of PET films.
Our synthetic paper was developed for printed materials that have to withstand extreme stress. The optimont® synthetic paper is manufactured on the basis of a white, opaque, heat-resistant BOPET film. The surface of the PET film has a matt coating and is suitable for all toner-based printing systems, such as copiers and laser printers. This film enables high-quality colour prints with attractive colour brilliance, good running properties and maximum mechanical resistance.

Our optimont® Syntheticpaper is cut exactly into the following standard formats with our specially developed format cutting machines:
210 x 297 mm - DIN A4 297 x 420 mm - DIN A3 SRA3
We offer the standard formats DIN A4 and DIN A3 packed to 100 sheets in neutral, white slip lid boxes or with your individual brand design. SRA3 and special formats are packed in brown folding boxes of 200 to 300 sheets each.
What does heat resistant mean?
All our films are heat resistant up to at least 200 °C. The melting point of BOPET and thus of our synthetic paper is approx. 265 °C. Our films can be used in all standard copiers and laser printers without the film damaging your equipment.
What are the special properties of Syntheticpaper?
