Specialty paper manufacturer Felix Schoeller’s STYLine® wallcovering substrate qualified for Xeikon digital presses
Xeikon, a market leader in digital colour printing technology for the labels and packaging as well as the document printing industry and a subsidiary of the Flint Group, today reported that it has qualified Felix Schoeller STYLine® nonwoven wallcovering media for use on Xeikon digital presses as part of the alliance between the two companies. Specifications for the STYLine® media are available on Xeikon’s Printmedia website: printmedia.xeikon.com.
The cooperation between Felix Schoeller and Xeikon started last year when the paper manufacturer and printing specialist worked together to qualify a range of papers for Xeikon presses. This product portfolio, including both wallpaper and high-end digital printing papers, opened up a whole range of new applications and design options for customers, and is now further expanded with the STYLine® range.
STYLine® nonwoven wallpapers have been specifically developed for digital printing technologies. With their soft and pleasantly matt surface, they guarantee excellent homogeneous print results and are also PVC-free. STYLine® wallpapers ensure very easy handling and excellent dry strippability. Felix Schoeller also reports high customer satisfaction, especially regarding the soft-touch feeling.
“We have seen excellent market response to our Wall Decoration Suite,” comments Dimitri Van Gaever, Business Development Manager, Xeikon. “We are pleased to be adding the Felix Schoeller STYLine® media to our catalogue of qualified wallcovering substrates. It’s a soft wallcovering and it works perfectly with our newly released coreless rewinder which was specifically developed for wall decoration. We expect to see good market uptake of this exceptional wallcovering substrate, especially with the growing demand for customized interior décor solutions, both among interior decorators and consumers. We are looking forward to hearing visitor response to the new media selections at FESPA 2017.”
Xeikon’s Wall-Decoration Suite enables cost-efficient production of high-quality wall decoration for commercial, retail and residential purposes. It consists of five major components: a Xeikon Digital Press, software-driven dedicated workflow, application-specific toners, process optimization tools and pre- and post-press solutions.
Felix Schoeller displayed wallcovering samples produced on Xeikon presses at FESPA 2017, 8 - 12 May in Hamburg, Germany.
