Fast, bold and vivid
ColorLok® Technology brings out the wow in print

You’ve probably spotted the CMYK-colored logo on the Multicopy packaging at some point. ColorLok technology is one of many features that ensure the excellent print quality of our premium office papers. But do you know what it stands for or how ColorLok® works? Here’s a short explanation and links to further exploring.

 

What is ColorLok®?

It’s a standard for better print quality. Paper that‘s qualified with the ColorLok logo is able to produce the best possible digital prints for both inkjet and laser printers. The technology makes sure that the papers of the Multicopy range provide consistent, reliable and great looking printing on all office machines. Print with bolder blacks and more saturated, vivid colors. Print that dries faster, hence doesn’t smear or blur.

 

How does it work?

This is the company’s brief and easy description of the rather advanced technology:

“During the paper-making process, a chemical additive is incorporated into the paper to “lock” pigments at the surface. Without this technology, paper acts more like a sponge, absorbing black and color pigments deep into the paper and away from the surface.

The result is a highly absorptive and fast-drying product”

 

Striking difference

The technology truly creates a big difference in color saturation as well as density and sharpness of blacks. And on top of adding a certain level of quality and va-va-voom to printing, ColorLok® has environmental benefits; since the ink stays on the paper surface, the paper offers enhanced recyclability by facilitating the ink removing – a key step in recycling. Enhanced recyclability … that’s like music to our ears!
