Outdoor billboards

Excellent printing

Our aim in developing this coated paper was to achieve superior results with all printing methods. We have special grades for offset and screen as well as for digital printing, working perfectly with solvent, UV or latex inks and its special coating will optimize ink consumption. Ahlstrom Chantaffiche™ delivers exceptional dimensional stability and works brilliantly on older as well as today’s advanced machines.

Easy billposting

We have endeavoured to make the process of bill posting easier than it’s ever been. Folding is fault-free. We’ve made Ahlstrom Chantaffiche™ crack-resistant, so there’s no white line on the printed side. And the paper’s high wet strength makes posting a smooth and easy operation.

Good in all weather conditions

We also ensure that the advertiser’s message looks as good at the end of the campaign as at the beginning. Ahlstrom Chantaffiche™ makes the advertiser’s message look good in all weathers conditions, without curling, fading or distortion. Its blue back ensures perfect opacity and our advanced reverse side treatment ensures an excellent adhesion. It has also an outstanding flaking resistance

Backlighted advertising

Our specialized backlight poster papers offer excellent printability and good sheet formation for homogenous see-through effect. Also the high transparency allows letting light through the paper at the right level.

Environmental impact

We ensure that we minimize the effect on the environment in all our production methods. Our raw materials originate from responsible and renewable sources, and all grades are available with FSC™ or PEFC™ certification. In 2010 we increased our material efficiency by 3.1 per cent, achieving more and reducing waste. And we’re improving our energy efficiency through co-generation and co-hydraulic power.

At Ahlstrom we’ve been using progressive technology for over 50 years to advance the standards of the poster paper industry. We believe in continually raising the bar, reaching for the impossible. And making it reality.
