Synthetic Paper YUPO®YUPO CORPORATION
"YUPO" is a synthetic paper made from polypropylene resin as its primary material. It offers extraordinary beauty, strength and flexibility. YUPO combines the advantages of both paper and plastic film, and thanks to its unique qualities, it is used widely in several fields, including the commercial printing, packaging and communication paper.
- Withstands repeated water exposure
Even if YUPO gets wet, there is virtually no reduction in its strength or deformation, making it outstanding against water exposure. The strength of YUPO is obvious when using maps outdoors.
- Resistant to tearing
Because the primary raw material is polypropylene, YUPO is resistant to stretching, folding and other stress. Because of its resistance to tearing, it makes strong shopping bags that can be used over and over, which surpass the level of paper considerably.
- Smooth surface
YUPO is good for finishing with a laminated coating. It can even be used for mouse pads because the surface maintains an even smoothness.
- Resistant to oils and chemicals
Since there is virtually no deterioration in quality even when YUPO is exposed to chemicals, including acid, alkalis, organic solvents and oils, it can even be used for labels on oil drums.
- Environmentally friendly
Because the primary raw materials of YUPO are carbon and hydrogen, it does not give off toxic chlorine gas when ignited. In addition, YUPO is reusable.
