A synthetic latex used as a binder in the coating of high-quality coated papers. Synthetic binders, which help the coating pigment adhere to the paper fibers, are often used in place of more popular organic binders as they provide high gloss, increased ink holdout, and increased strength and endurance for such post-printing operations as folding. (See Binder and Coating.)
