Cascades Introduces Enviro Jet Paper

September 09, 2013

Cascades has debuted a new paper line aimed specifically for the inkjet printing market. Enviro Jet is claimed to be the first inkjet paper that is 100 percent post-consumer fibre in North America. The paper was shown operating in a Oce ColorStream in Canon Oce's booth yesterday at PRINT 13 in Chicago.

According to Normand Champagne, General Sales and Marketing Director of Cascades Fine Paper Group, the paper has been in development for a year, a relatively short period given the paper's properties and the time it took to get approval through multiple vendors. The paper is pre-treated to be used with both pigment as ell as dye inks.

On the environmental front, in addition to being 100 percent post-consumer fibre paper, the paper is Ecologo and FSC certified, is chlorine free, and is also made with Cascades' plant that employs Biogas energy. Per ton, Enviro Jet paper saves 17 trees, more than 16,500 gallons of water, and 2,092 pounds of solid waste. The Enviro Jet line will be offered in four weights from 20 to 32 lbs. 

The paper has been tested to run on the following presses:

Kodak Versamark, Prosper
Ricoh InfoPrint
HP T Series
Canon Oce JetStream, ColorStream
Screen Truepress
Xerox CiPress 500
Fujifilm J Press 720

Commercial production will commence in the next several weeks, in batches of roughly 100 tonnes each. Champagne says that the versatile nature of the Enviro Jet line will be the biggest selling point, as one paper can take on multiple applications.
