High yield pulp (BCTMP)


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 and produce them at the Metsä Board Kaskinen Mill in Finland.

What gives Metsä 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 Metsä 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. All of the wood raw materials Metsä Fibre uses are 100% traceable to their source.

Typical end uses: 

  • Printing and writing papers 
    • Coated printing and writing papers 
    • Uncoated printing and writing papers 
  • Wood free papers 
  • Speciality papers 
  • Tissue products 
  • Paperboard products 

Botnia pulp is now called Metsä Fibre pulp. In the past, our pulp was branded with the Botnia name. The same products are now branded Metsä.  

Only the branding has changed. Our products and product range are exactly the same, with the same guaranteed Metsä Fibre quality.
