Newsprint & magazine

Newsprint paper is mainly used for printing newspapers and is produced in large quantities. It is made largely from mechanical pulp and/or recovered paper, sometimes including a small amount of filler. The thickness of the paper can vary according to the usage: weights typically range from 40 to 52g/m² but can be as much as 65g/m². Newsprint is machine-finished or slightly calendered, white or slightly coloured, and is used in reels for printing.
 

 

 

 

 

 

Magazine paper is uncoated mechanical paper, suitable for printing or other graphic purposes where less than 90% of the fibre used comes from chemical pulp. This grade is also known as groundwood or wood-containing paper, such as consumer magazines printed by the rotogravure and offset methods where drying is necessary.
