Catalyst Paper (Richmond, British Columbia) has announced the launch of Trident, a wet-strength label paper produced at its Rumford Mill in Maine, USA. Trident is a full wet strength label paper for application on water bottles, craft beer, juice bottles, wine bottles and large format containers.
Available in 47 lb. and 60 lb. basis weights (lbs. per 3,300 ft.2), Trident is sustainably produced with available chain-of-custody certification under the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) and Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) standards.
“As we strive to expand our portfolio of value-added, paper-based solutions for our specialty customers, we’re excited to introduce Trident, our new wet-strength label paper,” said Brian Boland, Vice President of Specialty Papers and New Product Development at Catalyst Paper. “Not only does this launch further demonstrate our commitment to the label market, it offers a durable beverage label with excellent wet opacity, printability and labeling speed that will satisfy the needs of both converters and brand owners.” The introduction of Trident follows the recent re-launch of Rumford Offset, as well as additional specialty products including GlideGraphics release liner base papers, the Leap family of lightweight food flexible packaging papers and the Bistro line of food service papers.
