Sappi introduces lighter weight release liners

Sappi has added extra weights to its range of Algro Sol release liners including 70, 80, 85, 90 and 98g /m². All are offering a significant price performance ratio and are mostly suited for office use, tape and industrial applications. All grades are available in different shades.

This follows earlier investments to the Alfeld Mill site including a new 135-ton MG cylinder that allows lighter weight liners to be produced efficiently. The new cylinder produces high dimensional stability, which is important as with some substrates the paper dimension in cross direction can expand by 2% or 3% as a result of temperature changes. With these grades the value is only 0.4% – this ensures consistency and runability.

Founded in 1706, Alfeld Mill became part of Sappi in 1992. It has five papermaking machines and an integrated pulp plant using locally harvested wood. The OHSAS 18001, ISO 14001, ISO 50001, EMAS, ISO 9001 certified pulp mill produces totally chlorine-free (TCF) bleached chemical pulp for its own use. The Alfeld Mill has also received the ISO 50001 certification for adhering to energy efficiency regulations.
