Paper Excellence today announced an indefinite production slowdown of its Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan BCTMP mill due to repeated lack of railway service. Meadow Lake Mechanical Pulp Inc., which employs 190 people and infuses over $1 million daily into Canada’s economy, is dependent on CN Rail, which has failed to transport Meadow Lake’s pulp production to ports for months. The mill has exhausted local storage facilities. “While we remain committed to servicing our customers’ needs during this slowdown, we are extremely concerned about this railway situation and hope that it can be resolved soon,” said Stew Gibson, Vice President, Operations and Logistics.
The release papers are produced at Condat, Lecta’s mill in France.
After the launch several months ago of its new range of Linerset release liners with Linerset CCK (Clay Coated Kraft) release paper, Lecta now presents Linerset Glassine, a supercalendered paper for siliconization with very good lay-flatness, caliper, transparency and high resistance.
Available in yellow and white, respectively, Linerset Glassine Y (Yellow) and Linerset Glassine W (White) are produced in substances from 45 to 78 g/m² for application on self-adhesive labels.
Introducing these new release liners, Lecta advances in its transformation and diversification project at its Condat mill in France. With an investment of more than 80 million euros, Lecta has transformed its Line 8 paper machine at Condat with the aim of manufacturing release liners for siliconization. Lecta also has acquired a new supercalender, making Condat one of the most modern, efficient and environment-friendly factories in Europe.
Soon Lecta will also launch Linerset Glassine Duo and Linerset SCK (Supercalendered Kraft). With Linerset, Lecta is developing a complete, high-quality portfolio of specialty paper-based solutions for pressure-sensitive products with the aim of becoming the supplier of choice for siliconizers, PSL producers and converters.
The Linerset paper range guarantees high performance for all your self-adhesive materials in labelling, graphic films, tapes and industrial applications.
