Brown Sack Kraft Paper

In order to give our brown paper grades the best possible strength properties, they are made out of virgin fibre from slow-growing pine and spruce. With efficient converting in mind, our paper is the ideal choice for a wide range of applications, such as sacks for cement & building materials, food and animal feed.

Advantage High Strength is recommended to be used for particularly demanding applications.

Benefits of our Sack Kraft Papers

  • Strength
    Both our brown and our white sack kraft paper grades offer excellent strength properties. Our strongest grades have a TEA index of up to 3.8 J/g. These grades are ideal for 1-ply and 2-ply industrial bags with a filling weight up to 50 kg.
  • Porosity
    For fast and dust-free filling of cement or other powdered goods we offer papers with a perfect combination of strength and porosity. These papers are porous enough to allow efficient de-aeration of bags during filling so that perforation is not needed. Yet they are strong enough to withstand the tough demands of filling and handling.
  • Printability
    Our white sack kraft paper grades in particular offer excellent print characteristics. A smooth paper surface and uniform paper formation achieve a high-quality print result that enhances your bag`s point-of-purchase appearance.
  • Runnability
    In the bag converting plant, paper features such as strength, stiffness and surface smoothness must be stable to ensure effective operation of the high-speed machinery.
