Sappi is introducing its extensive range of face stock papers, silicone base papers and wet-glue label papers at the upcoming Labelexpo Europe in Brussels, September 11-14, 2023. Sappi provides converters, printers, and brand manufacturers with comprehensive solutions, aiming to consistently deliver premium-quality products. This includes their extensive portfolio of silicone base papers, face stock label papers, and wet glue label papers. 

Sappi’s Glassine and Clay Coated Kraft (CCK) silicone base papers offer exceptional siliconization properties as well as easy and efficient processing. They are used as release liners for a variety of self-adhesive applications such as self-adhesive labels, visual communication applications, adhesive tapes, and office supplies. 

Sappi is upgrading its Silco product, with an optimized surface treatment formulation for the Silco Glassine product family. This includes the supercalendered Silco Label and Silco Tape BS papers, as well as Silco Process Liner BS. 

To complement the Sol product family, Sappi will be introducing two new CCK. With Sol BCK (Barrier Coated Kraft), Sappi is presenting a release liner for visual communication and industrial applications, as well as for adhesive tape products. The release liner improves traditional carbon footprints by eliminating plastic coating, improved recyclability by saving plastic material, and significant cost savings compared to commonly used PCK-based (Polyethylene Coated Kraft) release liners. The new Sol BCK offers advantages over PCK by reducing the CO2 footprint by more than 50% compared to PCK and significantly better recyclability by avoiding the use of plastic polyethylene.

Sappi also presents its new Sol PHD, a one-side double-coated CCK paper particularly designed for visual communication applications. The paper is available in a grammage of 135g/m2. It features high internal bond strength, a smooth surface, and low silicone consumption, as well as problem-free, cost-efficient handling and excellent lay-flat properties. 

The new Parade Label SG face stock paper boosts first-class printing and finishing properties. This one-side coated, semi-gloss paper for self-adhesive label applications excels with its printability, opacity, and stiffness. It is ideally suited as a self-adhesive label for prime product labelling, general packaging, transport packaging, disposable bottles, and containers.

Parade Label Pro is a glossy, one-side double-coated non-wet strength wet-glue label paper featuring an exceptionally smooth surface as well as a high degree of whiteness, while ensuring excellent printing and finishing results. 

To further strengthen its label paper business, Sappi announced a significant long-term investment at its production site in Gratkorn, Austria, at the end of last year. The project has been implemented, and the first volumes of the new wet-strength wet-glue label paper, to be distributed under the name “Parade Label WS,” have been produced. The addition of plant in Gratkorn, Austria will increase availability and fast delivery of Sappi’s label papers.
