Pacifico pulp is known throughout the world as versatile pulp with consistent characteristics. It is used as a raw material in a range of products from printing and writing paper (coated or uncoated) to paperboards, tissue and other specialty products.
Pulp strength is one of the most important properties of Pacifico pulp with a very good balance of high tear and good tensile, burst and fold properties.
Pacifico pulp has a high "coarseness" and fiber length close to the market. Its attributes guarantee a very good performance comparable to dominating market pulps and boosted by its homogeneous quality given by a unique plant "species".
Because of its consistent quality, Pacífico is particularly suited for combinations with other pulps in tissue production. When absorbency is targeted, like in kitchen towels and napkins, the share of BSKP (Bleached Softwood Kraft Pulp) needs to be clearly higher. Pacífico pulp has good absorption properties.
Board and Specialties
Pacífico pulp presents good strength, with a tensile index aligned to most long-fiber pulps. The same applies to the tear index. A good opacity/elasticity modulus ratio is desirable to avoid show-through and cracks/creases of folded cartons and boards; Pacífico pulp presents good performance in this ratio.
Printing & Writing
Pacífico pulp has allowed papermakers to consistently produce premium quality grades of printing and writing papers, with an acceptable performance in terms of the strength-tensile index versus the tear index.
