Sappi Highlights Comprehensive Global Solutions at Pack Expo 2016

Company unites to present full range of packaging grades and specialty papers

Sappi Packaging and Specialty Papers (www.sappi.com), a leading producer and global supplier of diversified paper and packaging products, will be showing its full range of specialty and packaging grades at the 2016 Pack Expo International in Chicago, November 6-9, 2016. Sappi is committed to offering customers high-quality, innovative and sustainable specialty products via its robust global network.

“We are excited to present again at Pack Expo this year,” said Mark Odgers, Director of Packaging, Sappi North America. “As we continue to grow our business on a global scale, it is important that our customers have access to Sappi’s full product offerings across regions. With our diverse product portfolio, we have the ability to help brands stand apart from the crowd. We continue to heavily invest in our infrastructure with our renewed focus on innovation, very high and consistent quality, increased capacity, and a promise to bring breakthrough products to market each year, which is a significant achievement in our industry.”

Sappi is presenting new advancements to some of its most popular grades at this year’s Pack Expo. Sappi recently restructured its containerboard product range to provide new and improved solutions for the corrugated cardboard market. This includes the bright white Fusion topliner as well as corrugating liner & fluting Ultraflute. Fusion topliner is unique in the containerboard market. Compared with other topliners on the market, it has an outstanding surface finish. This is reflected in its exceptional color brilliance with high-shelf impact for excellent brand differentiation. Fusion topliner also enables significant cost savings when it comes to finishing.  A heavy duty semi-chemical flute, UltraFlute demonstrates strength and durability and is ideally suited for high-end market applications that endure rigorous conditions throughout the supply chain.

Sappi saw two advancements in its packaging grades this year in North America. First was the expansion of its LusterCote product line to include heavyweight options. This provides press operators, brand owners and graphic designers with superior performance on a wide range of coated one-side (C1S) applications, including litho labels, envelopes, book dust jackets, set up boxes and point-of-purchase displays and now banderole. This complements the 55 and 60lb grades that were introduced the previous year, primarily targeting the cut & stack market.

Introduced earlier this fall at FachPack, Sappi will also be showcasing its premium packaging line, Algro Design. The award-winning Algro Design is typically used for folding cartons containing high-quality products such as cosmetics, perfume, premium chocolate and confectionery. The bleached cellulose carton helps convey the value of the end-product to the consumer.
