Standard Polyart

You want it all: the durability of plastic, the printability of paper? Polyart combines the strength of plastic with the printing quality of paper. Polyart stands up to water, grease, weather and chemicals; plus it beautifully reproduces all your most imaginative ideas. That means Polyart is the perfect solution for virtually any application. Our unique clay coating results in supremely vivid, rich colour and gives Polyart the versatility to print in a variety of sheet fed and web print technologies.

Formulas

  • Length x Width x Basis Wt. ÷ 950 (round up or down) x 2 = MWT
  • Lnft x Width x GSM ÷ 58589 = Lbs of a roll
  • Lbs ÷ 2.2046 = KG
  • GSM ÷ 1.48 = Basis Wt.
  • MWT x Price per lb = Price per 1000 sheets
  • Price per 1000 sheets ÷ MWT = CWT price
  • Lnft x 12 x Width of roll ÷ 1000 = MSI
  • MWT x # of sheets = Lbs
