New UPM Solide kraft paper family - strong, translucent and visual

To offer our customers a full portfolio of packaging papers, UPM Specialty Papers has launched UPM SolideTM, a family of kraft papers that feature a versatile combination of strength as well as converting properties. All grades in the portfolio offer excellent printability to maximise the shelf impact of packaging. All papers in the UPM SolideTM family are recyclable in regular paper recycling stream.

“UPM has made a commitment to novel climate positive innovations. The UPM SolideTM kraft papers are produced using 100% renewable and strong fibres from sustainably managed forests” highlights Dirk Ryckaert, Sales Director, UPM Specialty Papers.

“UPM Solide Lucent, for example, is a new translucent paper that offers a great alternative to plastics even on fast packaging lines where runnability is key” continues Ryckaert. “Our committed team of experts are ready to explore how the UPM Solide product family can be applied to your end-uses”.

Ensuring the safety of packaged products is a shared responsibility. UPM takes product safety very seriously and we do our utmost to ensure our papers are safe to use. Our product safety systems cover the entire manufacturing process from the procurement of raw materials to the delivery of end products.

The UPM SolideTM products are certified as safe for direct food contact. The products have received approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and The German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR). In addition, mills producing UPM specialty papers are certified according to ISO 22000 food management systems. The product range also offers alternatives that are free from optical brighteners.
