Catalyst Paper, Richmond, B.C., Canada, has added Ascent, a coated three paper, to its mechanical printing product range. Made at the Port Alberni mill on the only coated mechanical paper machine in Western North America, Ascent went from idea to market in the space of a few short months, the company notes.

"Our product development team brought tremendous cross-disciplinary expertise to the initiative, along with the understanding that a new product had to be hands-down excellent to meet the quality expectations of customers when there is so much choice in the marketplace," said Tom Crowley, SVP, sales and marketing. "Ascent was lab tested, trialed in pressrooms, and when it comes to printing, there's no better proof of how well it shows, than Catalyst's most recent sustainability report which was printed on Ascent."

Catalyst has long specialized in lower-basis weight production across a wide range of papers from newsprint and directory grades, to specialty papers ideal for retail inserts and flyers, to high quality glossy mechanical papers popular with commercial printers, magazine, catalogue, and book publishers.

Catalyst Paper produces diverse specialty mechanical printing papers, newsprint, and pulp. With three mills in British Columbia, Catalyst has a combined annual production capacity of 1.5 million metric tons.
