Kodak recognized NewPage with the first 5 Diamond rating in its new Paper Rating System for Kodak PROSPER Presses.
The NewPage Truejet line of gloss coated digital inkjet paper received the 5 Diamond rating—the highest in the program—for its image quality and performance, which equates to “offset quality” within the rating structure.
Launched by Kodak at drupa, the Paper Rating System uses five metrics that can quantify and characterize the image quality expectations for each paper type: Black Optical Density; Show Through; Line Raggedness; and for color printing, Color-to-Color Bleed and Mottle/Uniformity.
These tests are conducted under standardized conditions and results are simplified by Kodak into the 5 Diamond rating system. The program will be ISO certified and is rolling out globally throughout the year.
