Sappi North America, a leading producer and supplier of diversified paper and packaging products, has announced the addition of Somerset 9 point (9pt) Gloss to its Somerset product line. The new line, made at its Somerset mill, will offer an eight percent yield advantage over competitive 9pt grades and increased cost savings for customers. Through continued investment and innovation, Sappi now offers some of the lightest basis weights in the business for 7 and 9pt without sacrificing surface quality. For over 30 years, the Somerset Mill has produced products with superior stiffness, press runnability, and consistency. Another high-performance attribute is the minimum basis weight variability due to the mill's superior on-line process. With these factors combined, Somerset paper is engineered for the long run.
