Printing and Publishing Papers

Norpac

Today's competitive market requires papers that offer the highest print quality and press performance coupled with lower cost and higher environmental advantage. Norbrite® uncoated mechanical grades offer the full spectrum of possibilities for printing and publishing. In particular, new Norbrite 92 delivers high brightness, greater opacity, and excellent runnability with a yield advantage of 5-25 percent over uncoated free sheet (UCFS) papers.

The full range of Norbrite and other NORPAC paper grades includes a wide range of brightness levels specifically designed for high-quality offset printing of inserts, direct mail, workbooks and manuals, statements, catalogs, and books.

Norbrite: Your Low-Cost Alternative

Norbrite papers offer a yield advantage of 5 to 25 percent over uncoated free-sheet products. That's because our thermo-mechanical pulp fiber creates a sheet with increased opacity, bulk, and yield in a lower basis weight than paper made using the traditional kraft process.

All Norbrite products provide superb print quality and crisp color reproduction. A special surface treatment enhances press performance, allows for extended run times, and improves print quality on both heat-set and cold-set web presses. Norbrite makes a high-value substitute for many free-sheet applications that do not require an extended shelf life.

Norbrite Printing Grades

Our printing grades provide superb print quality and crisp color reproduction, while the enhanced surface treatment allows for extended press runs without downtime for wash-ups.
