Our Bleached Chemi-Thermo Mechanical Pulp (BCTMP) is often utilised in the production of paperboard to provide higher bulk and stiffness. In, e.g. printing papers higher brightness, bulk and smoothness can be achieved by replacing mechanical pulp with BCTMP.
Our BCTMP pulp is used to make our High Yield Bulk and High Yield Tensile products. We offer these products (in cooperation with Metsä Board) under the Botnia brand. The pulp is produced at the Metsä Board Kaskinen Mill in Finland.
What gives Botnia High Yield Pulp its excellent high yield and paper technical properties, is the bleaching process that has been designed to preserve the wood’s natural lignin intact. Each Botnia High Yield pulp has been tailor-made to best suit specific end uses from coated speciality papers to board and tissue. Each pulp product consists of 60-100% hardwood, with the remaining 0-40% being of softwood.
