Aimed at the dye-sublimation and digital print industries, US-based Beaver has appointed the Shrewsbury reseller to initially distribute three of its premium dye-sublimation products in the UK and Ireland.

At first, CMYUK will offer the ProTex Protection Tissue, a 25gsm high-yield material made from eucalyptus fibre designed for use on grand-format, dye-sublimation and rotary heat calenders at 3.2m-wide, as well as the 92gsm and 72gsm variants of its TexPrintUT utility textile-grade digital dye-sublimation print paper.

This portfolio is set to expand to include Beaver’s fashion and interiors range of products as the relationship between the two companies continues.

CMYUK textile business development specialist Joel Willcock said: “Beaver Paper is a prestigious global company that manufactures superior products for the professional, dye-sublimation market.

“Partnering with them for the UK and Ireland is a perfect fit, since we are regarded as the premier hub for the facilitation of digitally printed textiles.

“CMYUK is delighted to stock and supply these initial papers. In the near future we expect to add lighter papers for the highest of production speeds, as well as additional products orientated towards fashion, décor and interiors.”

ProTex is designed to extend the life of calender belts and is heat-resistant to help prevent web tear-outs with longer roll-lengths to reduce the number of roll changes.

TexPrintUT’s 92gsm variant is a middle-weight substrate for soft signage, décor and exhibition applications, while the lightweight 72gsm version can be used for banner and blind applications.

CMYUK is the exclusive UK distributor for EFI, Esko, Pongs, Gerber, MCT, Berger and AE Sewing Machines, while also distributing products from Mimaki, Graphtec, Klieverik and Easymount.
