Flaking?

Polar matte, 17x50 roll, z3200, from a tabloid (11x17)  size print area. This is straight out of the plotter, I saw it immediately after the cut. It is approximately 2mm across at the widest, both ways. I can mat over it, but this is the largest issue I've had so far. Have a less than 1mm bit of missing ink from a gold fiber silk print, and a hair larger one on a different polar matte print. I printed a different image immediately after, same paper and size, no issue.

Any idea what would cause this? It's too large to be a stray fiber falling away after printing. I bought the roll from someone else, but it was still sealed entirely and there's nothing that indicated it's second quality.
