HP has introduced its new Durable Foldable Document Material (DFDM), called 3-in Core, characterizing the new substrate as “a uniquely strong yet flexible material that has amazing holding power.” Once folded, documents lay flat and stay tightly folded with little expansion. HP’s 3-in Core can be easily transported due to its thin, lightweight construction. Referred to by its creators as “a tough printing substrate,” the new DFDM was also designed and tested to resist jamming in commercial folding machines and other popular finishing devices used by commercial printers.
Engineered with DuPont Tyvek, it produces tear-resistant and water-resistant, lay-flat, foldable maps, banners and posters that can be grommeted and stitched. Tyvek is used across many industries – from personal protection and weatherization, to packaging and transportation. Compatible with HP PageWide XL and HP DesignJet Printers, it’s aimed at applications where durability and tear-resistance are required with its unique “Fold n’ Hold” properties.
