Plotter Paper

How differs the paper in the area of plot printing? Plotter paper is a special type of paper used on paper rolls in so-called plotters. These paper rolls are available in different sizes, from 210 up to 3600 mm in width and from 30 to 250 m in length. Furthermore, there is the plotter paper in different grammages/strengths. Of 60 grams per square meter up to 360 grams per square meter. This 60 g paper used for brochures, while the high weights (usually from 140 grams per square meter) are used in the photo printing. The grammages 80 and 90 grams are Standartgrammaturen in the area of the report. There are different types of paper for this plotter, distinction is made between: uncoated: in the uncoated paper, the surface of the paper not like when the coated by Binder is closed, so the paint can insert into the material, Thus these loses luminosity while, however, the result is permanent and resistant to line break. Deleted: Gestrichenes Paper is a paper, in which the surface using a binder job is finished.

The binder used consists mainly of chalk, kaolin and casein and seals the surface. Thus, the paper is smooth and stable and provides a better quality and a high detail in printing. This paper distinction between matte painted, half matt painted and glossy paint. The paper is first matte for further processing, to reflect its original shine this paper is then frosted. Glaze which loses the paper while the stability obtained by coating and thickness, gaining luster. Here, the luster is determined by different high pressure. (The higher the pressure, the shinier the paper) Cast coated: when the cast-coated paper a plastic coating is applied differently than in the coated paper on one side only, as a result, the paper has a greater volume.

The high-gloss surface of the cast-coated paper is used This generates, that after a short drying a contact without great pressure is generated with a hot, chrome-plated and polished cylinder, until the coating is dry. Thus, the subsequent calendering falls away, so that the volume and strength remain. Satin: satin-finish paper is manufactured by that runs the uncoated material through a calendar. This runs the paper through several heated Glattwalzen, reducing the thickness of the paper and the surface is smooth and shiny. In this process, it is possible varies to sandblast front and back. The paper provides brilliant color results and razor-sharp contrasts, but the paper is not as stable and robust as the painted. Waterproof: is processed wasserfestes of uncoated paper In contrast to coated or frosted. This paper is in the production of effects adding a resin in the pulp, a resistance to water, since this not penetrate the fibers and they soften can. Thermal paper: The Thermotransferplotter like traditional plotter with ink will not print, but continues with a heated printing head on this special paper, the result is a darkness on the paper. In this paper, the print side is provided with a layer of thermosensitive. In this layer are fabrics such as pigments, contain Binder and auxiliary materials, they develop a black dye under the influence of heat. This principle is among other things used for receipts, receipts and parking tickets. However, aging these papers quickly and contain some harmful substances.
