Not all Plastics are Created Equal
In addition to learning new ways to reduce static in the press room, the how-to report also compares print production speeds of different plastics; Hop-Syn customers are able to produce an average of 15% to 20% more impressions than alternate plastics. Hop-Syn customers also experience less static than alternative plastics because of its uniform gauge thickness and unique clay-filled polypropylene construction, which makes the surface more absorbent for quick drying.
