The Application Specific Synthetic Papers

Hop-Syn® G1 FOLDS WITHOUT SCORING
Hop-Syn® G1 is a white, opaque, tear resistant synthetic paper made from a unique mixture of calcium carbonate and polypropylene resin. Manufactured by calender into a single layered substrate, our G1 grade is made with additional fillers to improve its folding capability, along with its brightness and opacity.

Hop-Syn® G2 MASSIVE THICKNESS
Hop-Syn G2 is a heavy gauge synthetic paper that is a superior alternative to conventional plastic. Our G2 grade is a single layered substrate manufactured by calender from a unique mixture of calcium carbonate and polypropylene resin. Our G2 grade is made with added whitening agents to improve its sheet brightness and opacity up to 93%

Hop-Syn® XT WHEN TEAR RESISTANCE MATTERS
Hop-Syn® XT is an extra tear resistant synthetic paper made from a unique mixture of calcium carbonate and polypropylene resin. Our XT grade is manufactured with UV inhibitors and additional whitening agents to improve its sheet brightness and opacity up to 94%.

Hop-Syn® TO HIGH OPACITY STOPS LIGHT
Hop-Syn® TO is an extra opaque, tear resistant synthetic paper made from a unique mixture of calcium carbonate and polypropylene resin. Manufactured by calender into a single layered substrate, our TO grade is made with additional whitening agents and fillers to improve its sheet brightness up to 94% and opacity up to 99%.

Hop-Syn® DL BRIGHT WHITE SURFACE
Hop-Syn® DL grade is a clay coated biaxially oriented polypropylene synthetic paper that is light enough to float on water, but still strong enough to withstand water, grease, chemicals, sunlight and tearing. DL’s smooth clay coated surface is produced with a high brightness, high opacity and a high dyne level that yields a high color resolution with superb print definition.

Hop-Syn® BL TRANSLUCENT WHITE
Hop-Syn® BL is a white, translucent polypropylene sheet designed for printing back-lit point of purchase signs and displays. Our BL grade is a high impact, tear resistant synthetic paper that is manufactured to meet the highest standards in the back lit sign industry. Hop-Syn BL is a rigid, weather resistant, UV durable substrate that is suitable for use in outdoor applications for up to (1) year under direct sunlight.

About Us

Hop Industries Corporation (HIC) was founded in 1977 and is a leading distributor of plastic film and sheets including PVC, A-PET, R-PET and Hop-Syn synthetic paper. Hop Industries has both manufacturing and in-house capability to slit, sheet and trim our products to customers’ specifications. Our base of operation is located in Lyndhurst New Jersey – 20 minutes from New York City.

What is Hop-Syn Synthetic Paper?

Hop-syn is a white, opaque synthetic paper constructed from polypropylene (PP) resin and calcium carbonate. Based on its unique construction, Hop-Syn can be made into multiple grades and gauge thicknesses (0.0031 – 0.032 gauge) by modifying its clay filled composition. This is accomplished by extruding Hop-Syn through a high speed, high precision calendaring process.

Multiple Grades, Properties and Benefits.

Each Hop-Syn grade has unique characteristics to match the application hence the phrase, “The Application Specific Synthetic Papers.” If you need foldability for a map, thickness for a POP sign, high opacity for a block out window display or if you need translucency for a back-lit transit display, we have a grade designed for each of these specific applications. Explore all our grades on this website or request a product guide to learn more about the differences between them.

Easy to Print & Fabricate.

Based on its clay filled construction, all Hop-Syn grades offer a high dyne level and a micro-porous matte surface that makes it easy to print via UV offset, lithography, flexography, thermal transfer and UV inkjet without the need for any pre-treatment. In addition, Hop-Syn’s single layer construction allows it to easily fabricate through a wide variety of processes by die-cutting, scoring folding, drilling and sewing. This encompasses applications that need to stand up to water, grease, harsh chemicals and extreme temperatures and UV sunlight without tearing, distorting or changing color.

What are the popular applications that Hop-Syn is suited for

Hop-Syn Synthetic paper is ideal for printing indoor and outdoor signs, posters, block-out window displays, back-lit transit displays, aisle signs and P-O-P hang signs, merchandise header cards, banners, menus, manuals, book covers, ID cards, maps, tags, labels and much more. These applications are well suited for Hop-Syn because its smooth matte surface allows you to print vivid colors with high definition and it because it comes in a variety of grades and gauge thicknesses that are tear resistant and waterproof that will custom fit your specific requirement.

Hop-Syn - Earth Friendly and 100% Recyclable.

Hop-Syn is an environmentally friendly substrate made from a combination of polypropylene (PP) resin and calcium carbonate (CaCO3). Based on its construction, Hop-Syn is stearate free and contains no heavy metals or harsh chemicals that are harmful to the environment. In addition, it uses very little water in its manufacturing process, which results in the preservation of Earth’s clean water resources. Therefore, all grades of Hop-Syn synthetic paper are recognized by CONEG, RoHS and REACH as an environmentally friendly plastic that is 100% recyclable.
