Tear-resistant, water-repellent paper. Ideal for wind and weather resistant folding maps, hiking maps, tour maps, race numbers, wipeable instructions or menus.
ENDURO Effect 100 Water improved is a tear-resistant composite material consisting of a 28 µm PP film core and impregnated white, glare-free uncoated paper surfaces. The three-layer product structure is durable, resistant to edge tearing and water impermeable with high wet strength. It can be cut, punched, perforated, drilled, embossed, folded and bound without issue.
The smooth paper surfaces are moisture-repellent, wipeable and offer optimized feed properties and printing results. Suitable for flexo printing, conventional offset, UV offset and laser printing.
Thanks to the multi-layer product structure ENDURO offers an affordable, eco-friendly and sustainable alternative to fully synthetic media. It is PVC-free and FSC®-certified.

For quality reasons ENDURO should be stored originally packed. Storage & converting conditions of 20±5°C and 50±10% rel. humidity are recommended.
ENDURO Effect 100 Water improved has been awarded a certificate by the Cyclos-HTP Institute. According to this certificate, the majority of the paper fibres (60% of the total composite) can be recovered in the paper recycling process. The film is separated and can be used for thermal energy recovery. When sorted using near-infrared sensors (NIR), however, this product is not identified as paper.
Therefore, it should be targeted for paper recycling as commercial waste. It is classified as “Mixed waste paper, grade 5.01” according to EN 643.
Smaller quantities can be disposed of together with household waste.
As conversion (i.e. printing) may significantly change the characteristics of a product, these recycling recommendations may only apply to ENDURO material before processing.
Originally packed under recommended storage conditions ENDURO rolls and sheets can be stored for at least 3 years.
