Stora Enso’s NewsPress range of newsprint is now available also as a 100% TMP grade
Available in 40, 42.5, 45 and 48.8 g/m2
Stora Enso’s NewsPress range of newsprint is now available also as a 100% thermo-mechanical pulp (TMP) grade.
'We have always adjusted our range of NewsPress papers to respond to shifting demand patterns and consumer preferences. We have a strong 100% recycled fibre based NewsPress offering, but wanted to offer a fully virgin fibre based NewsPress as well,’ says Juha Ceder, VP of the News & Book segment at Stora Enso.
'As our 100% TMP grade is an all-virgin fibre product, this means the paper will have a discernibly firmer structure due to its higher bulk content. Consumers will perceive a fresh look, with stiffer integrity to their newspaper and a delightful tactile feel associated with this paper’, says Håkan Naij, Mill Director at the company’s Hylte Mill in Sweden. ‘There are fewer and fewer mills today that offer 100% virgin fibre newsprint. Printers, whose customers continue to expect the same newspaper reading experience, now have the assurance that our Hylte Mill (which has been exclusively producing newsprint in Sweden for over 50 years) will fulfil their needs’.
NewsPress 100% TMP is bulkier than recycled newsprint; consequently, customers are able to print the same number of pages using fewer tonnes of material.
