Uncoated Mechanical Improved

Uncoated Mechincal Improved products provide a range of brightness which enhances the printed images. The result is an appealing final product with high bulk and stiffness.  The use of modern, twin wire paper machines and modern thermomechanical pulping processes ensure the high performance characteristics of the product.

Under related documents, paper profile declarations are listed for each product brand under the product group. The paper profile is a voluntary, internationally-harmonised environmental product declaration to guide the paper buyer.

Norbright
The Norbright range offers higher brightness properties and an enhanced printed image compared to newsprint. These products are especially well suited to cold set web offset, although they can also be used for heat set.

NorX
The NorX range offers higher brightness properties and an enhanced printed image compared to newsprint. These products are especially well suited to heat set web offset.

Norstar
Norstar has been specifically developed to assist the printer to maximise the cold set web offset quality. 

As a result of reduced dot gain and improved ink hold-out, half-tone reproduction is clear and sharp; it can lead to a cold set web offset printing result that approximates that of heat set web offset.
