FutureMark Launches New, High-Recycled-Content Coated Book Paper

FutureMark Paper Co., Alsip, Ill., USA, this week introduced what it says is the "first high-recycled" premium coated paper produced in North America especially for textbooks, cookbooks, children's books, and other picture books requiring premium print fidelity. Future Book coated book paper averages more than 90% recycled fiber in a paper category averaging less than 10% use of recycled fiber, the company notes.

Future Book paper took six months to commercially develop. It is the latest product to be made with FutureMark Green Clean Technology, a process that extracts embedded inks from wastepaper more effectively, while using up to 30% fewer chemicals. The new paper has a matte finish, a high brightness rating of 85, and is offered in roll form in five basis weights—50, 55, 60, 65, and 70 lb.
