May 16, 2017 – Verso Corporation, a producer of flexible packaging, technical, and label and converting papers, has introduced its GlazeBag NK and GlazeWrap NK products, joining its NK Series of machine-glazed natural kraft papers manufactured using unbleached virgin fiber.
These products, Verso describes, boast a natural look and feel with excellent performance for food service, industrial and flexible packaging applications.
Designed for standard and premium retail bag applications, GlazeBag NK is a multipurpose natural kraft paper that boasts “excellent printability” and “outstanding stiffness” for structural integrity and high-speed converting performance.
“Our focus is on creating high-performance, unbleached natural kraft papers for demanding converting processes,” said Mike Weinhold, Verso president of graphic papers. “With its oil and grease resistance, low porosity for moisture holdout, and consistency in extrusion laminating and waxing, our NK Series is a great complement to our trusted portfolio of lightweight bleached foodservice and flexible packaging papers.”
GlazeWrap NK, with basis weights (3000 sq. ft.) ranging from 15 lb. to 40 lb., is a multipurpose natural kraft paper designed for a range of converting and packaging applications. Verso describes GlazeWrap NK as a “perfect choice” for foil and film laminated products ranging from premium food pouches and wraps, to construction and industrial packaging applications.
The NK Series, including GlazeBag NK and GlazeWrap NK, is produced at Verso’s Androscoggin Mill in Jay, Maine.
