When you want the benefits of both Synthetic and Cellulose Based Papers.
FLEXDura HE® is an amazing, high wet strength, uncoated paper that is made from 100% cellulose wood pulp and is fully repulpable. However, unlike other wet strength papers, it holds up in harsh environments for months without discoloring, bleeding or losing significant strength. This high wet strength tag paper withstands harsh environments including wet, humid and chemical environments. It lasts for months without discoloring, bleeding or losing significant strength.
In many cases, FLEXDura HE® replaces synthetic papers, films and flash spun high density substrates in applications where users want a paper that biodegrades and can be used outdoors but still prints like paper without the use of special inks, toners or processes. Like any other paper, it embosses, die-cuts, glues and perferates easily but has the added benefits of having exceptional dry and wet tensile characteristics.
FLEXDura HE® truly is the most water proof paper available anywhere and it has lasted over two years outside in normal outdoor conditions.
Stocked in 8 colors and 3 calipers, FLEXDura HE® can be shipped in sheets and almost any roll size or quantity that you desire. And it can be printed flexographically, offset and digitally. That makes it perfect for your paper tag applications. These applications include:
Laundry Tags/Dry Cleaning Tags: This water resistant paper is chemically resistant. Therefore, FLEXDura HE® will go through washing and dry cleaning processes multiple times while remaining colorfast and strong. It truly does make the perfect garment tag, clothes tag or dry cleaning tag.
