Diversified paper and packaging products producer and supplier Sappi has launched new textured release paper line.

Ultracast Viva is designed for high-fidelity polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polyurethane (PU), semi-PU and solvent-free casting systems.

This product reflects the company’s sustainability practices and is in line with its environmentally friendly manufacturing goals worldwide.

Ultracast Viva helps enhance performance especially related to reduced curl.

According to the company, it has the ability to offer “increased reusability and easier handling with expanded temperature limits”.

Sappi casting and release strategy director Mark Hittie said: “Sappi is wholeheartedly committed to sustainability, so the launch of Ultracast Viva is a natural next step as we pursue ways to improve environmentally sustainable manufacturing through innovation.

“We continue to evolve our business to meet global demands and this product line is the perfect example. We’re proud that Sappi sets the standard for high-fidelity textures with a reduced environmental impact.”

Anli Co has become the initial adopter of Ultracast Viva. The company’s production director noted that it offers “easy release, consistent quality and high efficiency for our PU production”.

In 2016, the company introduced microtextures. Ultracast Viva has been added to Sappi’s permanent line of products.

Launch kits for Ultracast Viva will be available in the coming weeks and can be requested from Sappi sales representative along with a sample of the product.

In September last year, Sappi North America expanded its paperboard packaging portfolio with the launch of a new Spectro C2S grade.
