Agfa and Blue Rhine Sign Agreement For Distribution Of Synaps

Agfa-Gevaert’s Specialty Products Business Group, a global supplier of functional foils in a wide variety of application markets, and Blue Rhine General Trading, a major distributor of specialty media for large format printing and digital displays, are pleased to announce that they have signed an agreement for the distribution of Agfa’s SYNAPS synthetic paper in the United Arab Emirates.

The agreement covers the distribution of SYNAPS OM for offset printing and SYNAPS XM for xerographic or dry toner printing and also includes the pressure sensitive SYNAPS AP and SYNAPS AR, respectively with permanent and removable adhesion strength.

“After a market study with digital Xerography printers to show them the advantages of using Agfa’s SYNAPS on their existing machines, we concluded that SYNAPS would be a great addition to our product line,” says Joseph Anand, Vice-President Sales and Product Management at Blue Rhine. “The Middle East markets till now did not have availability of a high quality synthetic product for xerography and offset. At Blue Rhine we are proud to fill this gap in the market by distributing SYNAPS and look forward to successful partnership with Agfa for years to come as we grow this business in our region.”

Ivo Thys, Global Sales Manager SYNAPS at Agfa, comments “We are very pleased and excited to welcome Blue Rhine as our distribution partner for countries in the Gulf Region. With a portfolio of high quality specialty media products and a strong customer oriented service organization, Blue Rhine has earned a strong reputation built on more than 20 years of experience in the market. We are confident that Blue Rhine and SYNAPS will be a winning team.”

SYNAPS consists of a polyester base with double side coating for either ink or toner printing; it is weatherproof and shows unmatched tear resistance. SYNAPS is valued by its professional users around the world for its best-in-class printability. While it allows for using standard inks and settings, SYNAPS offers a true drop-in solution – also for print houses that print on synthetic substrates only occasionally. Additionally, its unrivalled ink fixation speed and consistent product quality have SYNAPS deliver a most valid alternative to post-print lamination with the same production efficiencies as when printing on paper.
