Pulp and paper company Sappi North America has expanded its paperboard packaging portfolio with the launch of a new Spectro C2S grade.

According to the company, the new addition will enable it to provide its customers with a superior quality paperboard packaging product for luxury applications.

Spectro C2S will offer a smooth and uniform surface for colour reproduction, details and better ink holdout.

It will also provide optimum convertibility for folding, die-cutting, glueing and other converting applications, as well as brightness and coating formulation for fade resistance.

Sappi North America Packaging Brands director Heather Pelletier said: “We’re pleased to announce our new C2S grade to complement our full line of Spectro paperboard products.

“We’re proud that our innovative legacy in coating technology enables us to deliver a superior surface.

“Our world-class assets at the Somerset Mill, which has one of the lowest carbon footprints amongst competitors in the packaging category, allows us to provide our customers with a sustainable product that is setting the new standard.”

Spectro C2S is suitable for packaging applications in various markets, including luxury beverage, cosmetics. perfumes, pharmaceuticals and direct mail.

Sappi will showcase its full line of paper packaging products during PACK EXPO in Las Vegas, Nevada, US, on September 23-25.

Last month, Sappi signed an agreement to buy a Canada-based hardwood pulp mill from Rayonier Advanced Materials for $175m.

Sappi North America has over 12,000 employees and production operations in three continents in seven countries. It is a subsidiary of South Africa-headquartered Sappi and has customers spread across more than 150 countries.
