Spinnaker Coating Expands BS5609 Product Line

TROY, OHSpinnaker Coating LLC, a manufacturer and industry-leading service provider of pressure-sensitive paper and film products for the printing industry, continues to build its expansive offering of BS5609-certified products.

“We recently partnered with Neenah Performance Materials to introduce ENDURA Inkjet Durable Paper as part of this line,” said Joel Ulrich, roll product marketing manager. “This product is a saturated and coated paper facestock that offers the high durability and chemical resistance typical of a film facestock, but at a more economical price point compared to standard inkjet films in the market today.” It is BS5609 Part 2 and Part 3 approved, and provides exceptional printability via flexography and water-based inkjet platforms.

“BS5609 approved products are an important part of our portfolio and are essential for many of our customers who make drum and barrel labels,” added Ulrich.

Spinnaker currently offers 14 products approved for Part 2 for overall adhesion, with four of them being Part 3 approved for print durability. In addition to inkjet printability, there are also laser and thermal transfer printable options—all with the benefit of availability on Spinnaker’s Trimless program.
