FOME-COR® SIRIUS, DISPA® SIRIUS with ColorPRO Technology Introduced for Enhanced Digital Print Performance

FOME-COR® SIRIUS and DISPA® SIRIUS – the first and exclusive graphic display boards to feature HP ColorPRO Technology – were developed through a multi-year collaboration between 3A Composites and HP to enable printing system performance that delivers color excellence in digital printing. 

NEW FOME-COR® SIRIUS and DISPA® SIRIUS with ColorPRO Technology – a set of paper enhancement technologies that visibly enrich inkjet print quality – have been introduced by 3A Composites USA ( in conjunction with HP ( 

FOME-COR SIRIUS and DISPA SIRIUS graphic display boards were developed to exploit the unique capabilities of the newly announced HP PageWide XL Pro printers, which are designed to print to rigid substrates up to 10mm thick and 40 inches wide at high quality and exceptional print speeds. FOME-COR SIRIUS AND DISPA SIRIUS with ColorPRO Technology are custom engineered to work with these printers and deliver unparalleled performance. By incorporating ColorPRO Technology, these exclusive rigid substrates conform to a strict set of industry-leading specifications and utilize advanced technologies designed to deliver noticeable performance benefits, including:

  • Higher black optical density and wider color gamut versus standard, uncoated papers.
  • Sharper details, lines, and text for clear, eye-catching graphics.
  • Trouble-free, high-impact graphics with greater color saturation and lower ink consumption.
  • Rapid ink absorption and rapid drying times enabling fast & easy printing.

FOME-COR SIRIUS and DISPA SIRUS both are designed to provide enhanced image quality and faster printing speeds for print providers looking to expand their businesses through the adoption of this technology. We are proud to have partnered with HP – one of the world’s leading technology pioneers in printing – to develop these revolutionary new products.”
