Korsnäs, Sweden, reports that its new 120 gsm Decor light coated White Top Kraftliner is a "major step," representing a 7.7% reduction in liner weight from the previous industry standard of 130 gsm for light coated grades. Korsnäs notes that the key factors of thickness, SCT, and Burst, compare favorably with other products on the market in higher grammages, allowing premium print results to be maintained, and in some cases enhanced. The new grammage will be available beginning later this month.

Korsnäs operates three production facilities, in Gävle, Frövi, and Rockhammar. Sweden. Its production capacity totals 1.1 million metric tpy of cartonboard and paper, with integrated pulp production. The company employs some 1,800 people. Korsnäs also produces biofuel pellets at two plants in Latvia. The company exports approximately 90% of its products.
