SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine , February 16, 2012 (press release) – Twin Rivers Paper Company, a leader in lightweight specialty packaging, label, and publishing papers, has released a packaging swatchbook, making it easier for customers to select the right paper for their application. This swatchbook features a broad range of coated and uncoated papers designed for packaging applications that require PFOA-free grease-resistance, wet-strength, FDA compliance, printability, strength properties and recycled content. Common applications for these packaging papers include sandwich wraps, basket liners, sugar packets, print-ply for multi-wall bags, theater popcorn bags, microwave popcorn bags and much more.

The packaging swatchbook focuses on two primary brands - Acadia and Bladepak®. Acadia, an uncoated machine-finish paper is available in 15-75 lb (24x36/500) basis weights and is known for its flexibility and functionality. Acadia offers grease-resistant properties and other options ideal for waxing, extruding and laminating applications.

Bladepak, a coated, one-side (C1S) paper, is available in basis weights of 35-69 lb (24x36/500) and is also offered in standard and grease-resistant designs. Bladepak offers superior printability, strength and flex crack-resistant properties that are ideal for offset, flexography and rotogravure printing processes.

“The swatchbook is a handy reference guide for finding the right paper for your application and highlights the breadth and diversity of our ever-expanding packaging portfolio,” says Dave Deger, Director of Business Development and Marketing. “With our long standing commitment to innovation and co-development, we look forward to working with you on your next project.”
