Nu Stone Opaque


Nu Stone Opaque is the perfect alternative if you are looking to reduce plastic consumption without paying a “Green” premium

Designed primarily for the POS print market it is manufactured exclusively for Nuco with a grey opaque centre to enable double sided printing in a retail type environment.

Reduce Plastic Consumption and Costs

Made from 80% chalk and 20% HDPE it can be used as an alternative to PVC or Polypropylene in either sheets or reels and is a great alternative for companies looking for a greener alternative to traditional POS substrates but also looking to avoid the price premiums of other “green” materials.

Suitable for a wide range of Print Media

Available in large format sheets for long run POS work can be printed on traditional wide format lithographic machines using either conventional inks (oxidising or hard drying) or on a UV offset press. The same material can then be used on shorter runs on UV Flat Bed printers.

Internal or External Use

The material is waterproof and can be used externally for short dwell applications, the heavier weight material can also be eyeletted for banners.

Fantastic Image Reproduction & Easy Running

The amount of chalk used in the product and coating means that Nu Stone Opaque has a highly receptive print surface that lends itself to high quality image reproduction. In Nu Stone Opaque you have a product that runs like a paper on litho machines with many of the properties of a 100% plastic product.

Product Range

Available in 210 microns – 400 microns

Stocked in the UK in 210 microns and 350 microns

Maximum sheet or reel width 1250mm


For complete versatility we also have Nu Stone Wide Format reels available that can be printed on smaller Inkjet or Eco Solvent machines.

You might also want to consider Nu Stone Card our 60:40 product which feels more like traditional plastic.

Nu Stone Opaque is also available without a grey opaque centre for single sided posters etc. You might also consider Nu Stone Print for one sided applications up to 200 microns.
