UPM EcoMail – a new MG Kraft envelope paper with strong environmental credentials

(UPM, Helsinki, 30 September 2010) - UPM has launched a new product UPM EcoMail in its MG Kraft envelope paper range. It is an economical and ecological paper for fast running envelope and pocket machines.

UPM EcoMail, new brown envelope paper is based on OCC recycled fibre. The fibre is collected close to the production unit, Tervasaari Paper Mill in Finland, which reduces the environmental impact. PEFC and FSC certificates confirm the origin of wood.

Runnability and strength properties of UPM EcoMail are comparable to non-recycled brown MG papers. Constant quality of raw material ensures the consistent quality and evenness of the shade. The paper is available from 75 to 115 g/m².

"This ecological and economical paper completes our MG Kraft envelope papers range. UPM EcoMail offers sustainable and economical benefits to our customers. The paper was developed to meet the clear need and demand for an environmental friendly envelope paper in the European markets", says Mikko Mensonen, Product Manager from UPM.
