The following is an excerpt from the article:
Hop Industries’ most popular banner vinyl alternative is Hop-Syn XT. The synthetic paper is easily die cut and can also be grommeted and printed on both sides. It’s a single-layered mineral-filled polypropylene, which is produced using a calender manufacturing process. This finishing process creates a smooth white matte surface. The XT grade is UV resistant up to one year outdoor, and resistant to scuffs, weather, and tearing.
