Press ReleasesLaunch of NPi Form NEXT-IJ α- Upgraded version of well-received NEXT-IJ -

Nippon Paper Industries Co., Ltd.

Nippon Paper Industries Co., Ltd. (President: Fumio Manoshiro) will begin selling its new product under the name of NPi Form NEXT-IJ α. It is an upgraded version of NEXT-IJ, which is the industry standard for woodfree web inkjet paper. The new product will be produced at Iwakuni Mill (Iwakuni City, Yamaguchi Prefecture).

NPi Form NEXT-IJ α is a new product that provides a high level of response to the ever-increasing demand for quality web inkjet paper in line with the evolution of printers.
Incorporating various paper-making and coating technologies that Nippon Paper Industries has traditionally cultivated, it has achieved a high level of print density, dot reproduction, print water resistance, and high precision color tones, among other characteristics. Under the same printing conditions, it produces a print density level that is up to 20% higher than that of conventional paper products. With its resistance to print through, it maintains an equivalent level of print density even with a base weight reduction of up to 20%. With these features, it opens the way for applications in areas where inkjet printing has not previously been used and offers the potential for cutting users' costs due to the reduction in the amount of inkjet printing ink used.
On-demand or short run books, publications, trans-promo, transaction, etc., are projected to be major markets for web inkjet presses.

Nippon Paper Industries will continue to respond actively to wide-ranging customer needs through its distinctive product development.

Samples of the product for the printing and bookbinding processes will be on display at the International Graphic Arts Show 2015 (IGAS 2015)*, which is scheduled to take place from Sep. 11(Fri.) to Sep. 16(Wed.).
