UPM introduces UPM EcoLite

(UPM Helsinki, 4 January 2011) - UPM introduces UPM EcoLite, a new uncoated paper that is available in very low basis weights, 29 g/m² and 31 g/m². EcoLite is a low cost and environmentally friendly product and it provides a competitive option for very low basis weight WFU papers.

UPM EcoLite is, for example, suitable for mail order catalogues, manuals, booklets and books, inserts, leaflets and advertising materials. It is the perfect choice when whiteness and yellowness are not the most critical elements in the end use. This product is produced at Kaipola mill in Finland.

Technical specifications can be found in the online catalogue at www.upm.com/en/paper. To request samples of UPM EcoLite please contact UPM's local sales representative.
