Magazine paper the development of more rational
Low quantitative social development and environmental protection as the concept of gradual, as with many paper, magazine paper are also present to the low quantity, good whiteness and printability other direction, so not only can reduce paper usage, saving production costs, but also by reducing mailing costs and achieve further savings.
However, the paper will affect the low quantitative performance indicators of the magazine paper, such as: white, gloss, roughness, opacity, bulk and so on. For example, while a high whiteness and good opacity is very difficult, especially in the low weight of the case, to ensure a high gloss and good opacity, bulk, very difficult.
High added value such as the use of wet chemical techniques and paper coating technology to improve the quality of the paper; production for the international market of high-end products such as specialty paper and so on. High relative to their cost in terms of value added, so the paper should focus on reducing production costs. In recent years, following the newsprint, coated paper, the international on the LWC and the rapid development of super-calendered paper. Mechanical pulp as the main raw material of LWC, as opposed to chemical pulp as raw material for paper of its low cost; and super calendar paper is based on mechanical pulp and paper, minerals as raw materials, including mineral filled the amount of up to 30%, minerals cost much lower than wood fiber raw material costs, but super calendar paper and good printing quality, A-level super calendar paper, the performance can reach the level of LWC. LWC, super calendar paper is of high value-added products, should be the focus on the development of future products.
