Kraft paper is a very durable grade of paper with high resistance to mechanical damage. It is made from 100% unbleached cellulose fibers - a recycled and biodegradable material. The kraft process includes methods of alkaline delignification of wood to make the structure of the plant cell more flexible and less rigid. It is cost-effective and versatile material does not allow grease to pass through and protects well from moisture. Due to these properties, it is used in many industries, such as medicine, food, and packing.
It is widely used due to the following advantageous properties:
- high strength and resistance to puncture and tear
- inert towards the packaged goods: does not leave any smell or marks
- passes oxygen and prevent moisture condensation
- does not stick to the product
- environmentally-friendly (period of complete decomposition in the soil - 1-2 years)
Versatile and multifunctional paper packaging
There are many uses for paper packaging: protective covering for the safety of goods, decorative packing for gifts or presentations, food wrapping during cooking or for long-term frozen storage, etc.
For the safety of goods during transportation, the most popular options are the brown kraft rolls or innovative HexcelWrap cushioning wrapping. HexcelWrap is ideal for packing fragile items (i.e., plates, mugs, vases) into cardboard boxes with efficiency and reliability. It is initially smooth in the roll, expanding as it is pulled out and transforms it into a high-performance shock-absorbing material.
Kraft paper also has anti-slipping properties and is used as an anti-slip layer to prevent loads from slipping on pallets. It ensures the stability of palletized products during internal conveying, storage, and transport of goods.
The newsprint sheets are great not only for safety goods, but also for the nice appearance of the packages. It has a nice smooth surface and gives an exceptional touch as a gift wrapping.
Masking paper is designed for surface protection and acts as a separation barrier, protecting against paint drop, over-spray, dirt, dust, etc. Can be used for any surface, including windows, trims, doors, etc.
Butcher and freezer paper is commonly used in the food industry as they are much stronger and more durable than foil or parchment paper. Good for packing, wrapping, and cooking meat, as well as gift wrapping, table clothing, and crafting.
