If you’ve ever tried to use a paper map that has become saturated with water, you know it is a frustrating experience. The map tears easily and eventually becomes weak and useless.
Would you believe you can now print your map on waterproof paper? It's not only waterproof, but also tear-resistant, and tough enough to withstand the rigors of frequent use. With our synthetic paper, you can still show fine details and it folds easily for convenient handling.
Our bright white, ultra smooth synthetic paper combines the versatility of traditional paper with the durability of plastic. It's well suited for most environmental conditions with resistance to water, grease and other contaminants.
Waterproof – Unlike conventional paper, aquaproof paper does not absorb moisture. Even when completely submerged in water, a aquaproof paper map will retain its strength and structural integrity.
Tear Resistant – The multi-layered polymers used to create aquaproof paper offer a more dimensionally stable substrate than the cellulose fibers of conventional paper. Neither wind nor water will harm a aquaproof paper map.
Long Lasting – aquaproof synthetic paper is extremely durable and scuff-resistant. Its ultra-smooth finish does not absorb moisture, oil, or stains. When soiled, aquaproof paper maps can be easily wiped clean.
Flexible and Foldable – aquaproof paper resists wrinkles from frequent handling. Plus, aquaproof paper maps can be folded into multiple panels, similar to a paper map.
Razor Sharp Detail – aquaproof paper holds ink colors extremely well. Since there is no ink spread or absorption, maps can be printed with precise details.
Environmentally Friendly – Made from inorganic compounds, aquaproof paper is totally “tree free.” aquaproof paper is also 100% recyclable.
