Sappi invests in wet strength label paper production capacities at Gratkorn

Label Solutions

Sappi Europe is set to extend its capacity at its mill in Gratkorn, Austria, enabling the mill to also manufacture wet strength label papers. The double digit million euro investment in technical infrastructure, such as a new embossing calendar, will enable the paper mill to produce high quality wet strength wet glue label paper.

With the further expansion of the mill’s technological infrastructure, the production of label papers will be extended (in addition to all existing graphic papers) and product innovations will be driven forward. Extensive technical innovations in the papermachine’s water and material cycles are planned, as well as investment in the new embossing calendar. This is key to producing the kind of wet-strength, wet-glue label paper used in the beverage industry, for instance on returnable beer bottles, and to enabling the production of high quality labels.

In mid 2021, the company expanded its product portfolio of non wet strength, wet glue label papers with Parade Label Pro, ideal for many different applications, such as standard labels for bottles, tins and jars, as well as wrappers for various products. In January 2022, this was followed by Parade Label SG, a high performance, semi gloss face stock paper for self-adhesive labels for a wide range of applications such as food, non food, beverages, health and beauty care products.
