Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

Myllykoski, Finland, has introduced a new high bulk paper with increased cost efficiency. With a bulk of 1.2, My Volume reportedly provides a basis weight savings of around 10g/m² for the production of magazines, journals, direct mailings, or inserts "without compromising quality." The new paper has a closed, homogenous surface, even though the paper is not calendered again after the coating process. "This is how we preserve the high original volume of the paper after coating and still achieve the exceptional specifications, namely high volume and opacity combined with a bright white shade and a smooth, elegant surface," says Ralph Bächle, product manager at the company's MD Albbruck mill in Germany, the largest mill of Myllykoski with three paper machines (PM 5, PM 6, and PM 7) that produce around 300,000 metric tpy of wood-containing coated printing papers.
