UPM Finesse bulky matt for HSWO printing

UPM has broadened its volume paper offering: in addition to the range of sheet papers introduced in spring 2005, UPM Finesse bulky matt has been launched for web offset printing in September.

UPM Finesse bulky matt is a high-white matt-coated woodfree paper that combines the outstanding optical properties offered by the UPM Finesse art paper range with a higher bulk and greater rigidity. The UPM Finesse bulky matt papers have a bulk of 1.05 cm³/g in reels and 1.1 cm³/g in sheets.

“Both grades have been matched to each other in terms of optical characteristics, so that reel and sheet papers can easily be used together to achieve visually attractive combinations of for example text and cover,” says Kari Ylönen, Business Manager for Graphic Reels at UPM. With their high whiteness, both papers are perfectly in line with the total UPM Finesse offering.

Whether in sheets or in reels, UPM Finesse bulky matt papers are particularly attractive to book publishers, as they give printed products with a limited number of pages more bulk without adding any extra weight. Along with the paper’s high rigidity, the matt surface provides a pleasant feel while ensuring superior readability. Further advantages of the UPM Finesse bulky matt range include an excellent runnability in the printing press and versatile finishing options. These strengths combine to make the paper a perfect choice for various applications such as direct mails, advertising material and – particularly as reel stock – for the production of envelopes.

UPM Finesse bulky matt for web offset printing is produced at the Kymi mill in Finland and is available in basis weights ranging from 80 to 130 g/m² and in reel widths from 200 to 2200 mm. UPM Finesse bulky matt for sheet fed offset printing is produced by Nordland Papier in Dörpen and supplied in a basis weight range from 90 to 170 g/m².

New printed samples can be ordered by mail upm.finesse@upm-kymmene.com or by fax from +49 (0) 49 63 401 1930.
