Sappi North America, a producer and supplier of diversified paper, packaging products and dissolving wood pulp, said Tuesday its Proto and Spectro paperboard products are available globally for commercial orders in all calipers.

“It’s difficult to find products with high-quality print capabilities and consistency, but Sappi’s new line of products have helped grow our folding boxboard and high-end application services,” Ron Moore, President, Cutting Edge Paper Ltd., says. “We strive to provide our customers with the best products for their packaging needs, and Proto and Spectro are setting the new standard for the paperboard market.”
Announced at the end of 2018, Proto and Spectro boast “enhanced optics with high impact and lightweight feel,” according to Sappi. The products are produced at Sappi’s Somerset Mill in Maine, which recently invested over US$200 million to rebuild its Paper Machine 1 and woodyard. Both products are now available for commercial orders and samples, which can be requested online.
Proto C1S is described as a sturdy, single-ply SBS for everyday premium packaging applications. The folding carton board can be applied to cosmetics, health and beauty, confectionery, consumer electronics and other consumer packaging. The line, Sappi says, can also be used for magazine and book covers, shopping bags, point-of-sale materials and direct mail.
Spectro C1S is a single-ply SBS for high-quality packaging and graphic applications in the consumer and lifestyle markets, similar to Proto. Whether using UV, aqueous, or specialty coatings, hot foil stamping, embossing, special effects, or varnishes, the line is designed to bring a “substantial feel at a lighter weight with enhanced optics” for everyday products looking to stand out on the shelves, according to the company.
