WALLSTAR DIGITAL nonwoven wallpapers have been specifically developed for digital printing technologies, guarantee excellent homogeneous print results and are also PVC-free. The range features smooth, structured, coated and non-coated substrates, from 110gsm to 180gsm. The BR9708 is the only matt fibrous option on the market.
The long-standing cooperation between Ahlstrom-Munksjö and Xeikon intensified last year when the nonwoven manufacturer and printing specialist worked together to qualify a range of papers for Xeikon presses. This includes Xeikon’s Wall-Decoration Suite. It 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, a dedicated workflow, application-specific toners, process optimization tools and pre- and post-press solutions.
“We have seen an excellent 2018 performance of our Wall Decoration segment, both in terms of production volumes at our existing customers and new installations of Xeikon production lines in the field,” said Dimitri Van Gaever, business development manager, Xeikon.
“We are pleased to be adding the WALLSTAR DIGITAL media to our catalog of qualified wallcovering substrates,” added Van Gaever. “The BR9708 grade from Ahlstrom-Munksjö is a textured high-quality grade. 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.”
Both Xeikon and Ahlstrom-Munksjö are displaying their expertise and products this week at Heimtextil, which takes place Jan. 8-11, 2019 in Frankfurt, Germany.
