Machine Finished

As our MF grades are the strongest in the Advantage portfolio, they are in great demand from a huge variety of industries, ranging from retailing to steel products. High stiffness makes them ideal for high-speed converting machines. The end uses include carrier bags, PE laminated products, wrapping and protective products.

Advantage Formable can be formed using existing technologies and adds a natural feel with a distinctive environmentally friendly character to shaped packaging solutions. 

Benefits of our Speciality Kraft Papers

  • Runnability
    All our speciality kraft papers are developed and made with efficient converting in mind. Even paper profiles ensure stable productivity on modern high-speed converting lines.
  • Strength
    Primary fibres from slow growing pine and spruce give our papers the best possible strength properties. As you would expect, we can also meet the most stringent wet strength requirements.
  • Smoothness
    A soft calender in the paper machine gives our paper grades the smooth surface needed for optimal print quality.
  • Silicone hold-out
    An excellent paper surface is absolutely essential for effective siliconisation. The smooth surface, high density and low moisture level of our release base grades allow minimum silicone use while retaining perfect release properties.
  • Cleanliness
    We source our raw materials from certified suppliers. Extremely strict production monitoring includes hygiene control and in-line hole and spot detection. We only use the purest raw materials with a low bio-burden level.
