Tembec launches whiter shade Kallima FSC Certified Coated Cover paperboard products, says it offers up to 20% savings over competing products

MONTREAL , August 29, 2011 (press release) – The Tembec Paper Group is proud to announce the official launch of its new, whiter shade Kallima® FSC Certified Coated Cover paperboard products. This latest product enhancement is a result of Tembec's continual investment into its manufacturing processes and facilities, and an unwavering commitment to providing customers with superior quality products.

The upgraded line-up sees Kallima® Coated Cover offered in a new, bluer-white shade while retaining all the physical target properties that deliver its superior printability and reliable runnability. The development of the new, bluer-white shade translates into important additional benefits to commercial print, graphic design and end-user customers ̶ a greater scope of projects and applications; richer, vibrant colors; and superior print gloss performance.

The new, whiter coated cover collection maintains its basis weight advantage and still offers savings of up to 20% over competing products ̶ giving print projects the presence, feel and stiffness at significantly reduced costs. Printability, runnability, savings, and complete creative versatility make Kallima® Coated Cover an ideal choice for a vast range of commercial printing applications, from greeting cards to brochures, magazines, book covers, menus, folders, posters, POP displays and direct mail.

Kallima® C1S, C1S Plus and C2S is available in heatset/web rolls and sheets (cartons and skids), as well as in formats specifically designed for digital presses. Kallima® Coated Cover is fully compatible with post press production effects such as die cutting, UV and aqueous coating, folding, scoring, embossing, debossing and foil stamping. All Kallima® Coated Cover products are FSC certified and are available with 10% recycled content upon request.
