Machine Glazed paper

The yankee cylinder on which MG grades are dried has a hot, glazed surface that creates an exceptionally high gloss on one side of the paper. The result is a superb combination of runnability, opacity and printability. Excellent fibre formation assures high strength in both the machine and the cross direction. These versatile papers are used for bags, extrusion coating and lamination applications, flexible packaging and protective packaging.

Advantage MG White High Gloss is a white MG paper with high gloss, excellent strength properties and good runnability. We recommend to use this paper for bags and coating-applications and when strong performance during converting is needed. Advantage MG White High Gloss is also available in Extra Sized quality.
