Cape Kraft Mill, based in Cape Town (South Africa), uses approximately 67,000 tons per year of waste paper to produce 60,000 tons of paper per year. The fact that the mill's product is produced from 100% recycled paper provides a competitive edge in our markets, which are becoming increasingly environmentally aware.
Another competitive edge is the flexibility offered by the offline coater, which can coat papers from as light as 46g/m² to as heavy as 350g/m². The coater offers corrugators, carton and bag/sack manufacturers a selection of barrier and clay-coated papers.
Fluting (112g/m² - 175g/m²)
Fluting is an integral part of corrugated box construction
and is sometimes referred to as corrugating medium. Sappi's range of fluting
includes semi-chemical and recycled grades, which provide the exceptional
stiffness characteristics required for demanding packaging applications.
Cape Fluting is manufactured from recycled fibre and offers
exceptional runability on a corrugator, making it a favourite amongst
corrugated case makers. Corrugated boxes incorporating Cape Fluting are
normally targeted at the industrial end-use sectors.
Linerboard (125g/m² - 200g/m²)
Linerboard is used as the outer layer in corrugated cases.
Cape Liner is manufactured from recycled fibre and is
suitable for industrial case making applications where packaging costs are a
