Advantage MF Wrap

Advantage MF Wrap is produced from pure, unbleached long-fibre kraft pulp and mainly used for PE lamination; end use reel wrapping material and other kraft paper applications such as carrier bags.

Advantage MF Kraft

Advantage MF Kraft is a brown speciality kraft paper with high stiffness and exellent runnability. We especially recommend its use when very high tensile strength in machine direction is needed (i.e. open mouth sacks).
