Synthetic paper is generally manufactured from petroleum derivatives such as synthetic resins (polyethylene and polypropylene). Synthetic paper displays characteristics resembling those of plastic films and at the same time is visually indistinguishable from regular paper. Synthetic paper offers a multitude of advantages over ordinary paper due to its superior chemical and physical characteristics. Synthetic paper is resistant to water, stains, tearing, oily substances, and most chemical products. In addition, unlike normal paper, synthetic paper is capable of withstanding extreme heat and cold. Furthermore, synthetic paper is resistant to ultraviolet light (UV) and sunlight, which makes it ideal for outdoor applications. Synthetic paper is inorganic, eco-friendly and produces very low quantities of byproducts during the manufacturing process. Synthetic paper can be easily disposed off through recycling, incineration, or at certified landfills. Synthetic paper not only finds application in the converting industry, but also in the food label and packaging industry and for children's books.
