Synthetic paper exhibits characteristics of both plastic and paper. Synthetic papers are substrates that retain plastic characteristics such as chemical resistance, tear resistance, good printability, and in certain cases heat sealability as well. Additionally, these products also provide the benefits of normal paper such as printability, appearance, feel, whiteness, and opacity. Globally, synthetic papers have witnessed strong growth from various end-user industries, especially from the tag and label industry. Other key end-user industries include cosmetics, chemicals, transportation, leisure, and advertising.
