FPINNOVATIONS — PAPRICAN BENCHMARK QUALITY OF BLEACHED KRAFT MARKET PULPS

Pointe Claire, QC — FPInnovations, Paprican Division, through its ISO-accredited physical testing laboratory, invites mills to participate in a new program to benchmark fully bleached kraft market pulps produced globally. The purpose of this program is to provide market pulp manufacturers with a database that contains information on typical properties of market pulps produced worldwide, and allow them to position their own products against other producers of similar types of pulp.

“A similar program was conducted in 2003 and was highly praised by its participants, said Dr. Maurice Douek of Paprican. This new program is intended to be even broader in scope and will include market pulps produced globally.”

Each participating mill will be asked to send a representative sample or samples of pulp. Tests, commonly used to characterize market pulps and to evaluate their papermaking potential, will then be conducted on each pulp.

For more information, mills can contact Dr. Maurice Douek before November 30, 2007 at (514) 630-4127, mdouek@paprican.ca
