New FRUBO Superior Photo Quality Inkjet Paper "MICROPOROUS" in the Roll Quality Series Features Outstanding Whiteness in a Wide-Roll Inkjet Photo Paper

FRUBO AG Switzerland announces the introduction of a new wide-roll inkjet paper featuring
outstanding whiteness, super-high photo imaging quality, and excellent resistance to fading
and dye migration. New Superior Photo Quality Inkjet Paper MICROPOROUS will be available in June 2004.

FRUBO MICROPOROUS paper of the Roll Quality Series is a professional-quality wide-roll inkjet photo paper manufactured using a proprietary multi-layer concurrent coating process derived from long
years of experience in the development and production of colour photo papers. It enables
clear and crisp colour reproduction with the look and feel of traditional photographs. Since its
introduction in 2003 to the market for wide-roll media which has broadened to include a wide
range of printing styles, the FRUBO MICROPOROUS paper has received high marks for
its superb photo image quality and super-fast drying properties.

The FRUBO Superior Photo Quality Inkjet Paper MICROPOROUS
now being introduced in the European and Asian market is a new member of the Superior Photo Quality Series that, as the name indicates, offers a more brilliant white than previous products along with better resistance to post-printing fading and dye migration, as well as improved photo imaging and super-fast drying properties. This new paper is a universal type compatible with both pigment- and dye-based ink systems, and is ideal for all wide-roll printers of almost any type and manufacturer. It dries instantly for easy handling and greater productivity.

For the broadest range of print applications, the new MICROPOROUS Roll Quality Series offers a choice of beautiful gloss or silk finish and five widths: 12, 17, 24, 36 and 44 inches. The addition of new heavy weight to the line-up enables the MICROPOROUS Series to handle the total range of photo prints requiring vivid, lifelike, professional-quality images.

Major Features:

1. Brilliant photo image quality thanks to the highest whiteness and lowest dye migration in
the Superior Photo Qulity Inkjet Paper Series:

This new product delivers outstanding paper brightness in an inkjet photo paper. The “Superior Super White” features the highest whiteness of the FRUBO Superior “MICROPOROUS" (103% under ISO 2470, compared to 95% in the previous Series), enabling colour reproduction faithful to the original image colours.

And a newly developed dye solvent ensures the maximum level dye fixation on a wide-format
inkjet media, reducing post-printing fading and dye migration for outstanding long-term
image stability.

2. Instant Drying — the fastest among glossy photo inkjet papers This paper’s super-fast
drying characteristics result from technology that forms micro pores which absorb ink quickly.
This reduces the time and space needed for drying, helping to boost productivity for wide-
format prints.
