- suitable for water-based inkjet printing (dye and pigment inks)
- compatible with latex inks
- optimum performance in the self-adhesive production process (handling, labelling, matrix removal)

This makes jetscript Metal VPG 1018 suitable to produce eye-catching labels in the cosmetics, beverage or food industry, as well as personalised wrapping paper, high-quality advertising panels and displays.
