PG Paper are committed to delivering the best pulp solutions to our customers, which is why we have a range of wood pulp solutions that each have different qualities and serve various purposes.
What is Paper Pulp?
Paper pulp (often referred to as pulp or wood pulp) is a fibrous material produced using plant fibres, processed through different pulping methods. Pulp is produced by separating the cellulose fibres of wood, which can be done through a chemical or mechanical process.
The chemical process involves breaking down wood fibres by using chemicals that help to remove the cellulose molecules. The chemicals break down the lignin, which separates the cellulose fibres. The resulting pulp is then washed and bleached, resulting in fibres that can be used to produce paper-based end uses.
Alternative to the chemical process, the mechanical procedure involves physically grinding down wood chips to separate the fibres. This method is preferred by those who require a higher lignin content, and this type of pulp is often used for applications that don’t require high whiteness.
Pulp can be used for a wide range of end uses and is used across many industries. Some of the most common applications include tissue products, board grades and printed materials.
Different Types of Paper Pulp
At PG Paper, we provide a diverse selection of wood pulp products tailored to suit various end-use applications.
Softwood pulp contains fibres that are long and possess exceptional strength. At PG Paper, we can offer both NBSK (Northern Bleached Softwood Kraft) and SBSK (Southern Bleached Softwood Kraft), which are best suited for high-end paper solutions and tissue products. Reach out to our team today for more on our softwood pulp grades.
Hardwood pulp contains much shorter fibres in comparison to hardwood pulp. This provides more formation to the structure and contributes towards greater printability in the final product. Two common forms of hardwood pulp that we offer are Eucalyptus and Accacia pulp, which are both suitable for writing papers and tissue products. Reach out to us today for more information on our hardwood pulp supply.
A type of pulp produced from spruce or pine trees. Fluff pulp features high absorbency and softness, making it suitable for the manufacturing of hygiene products, including baby diapers and female hygiene products. PG Paper offers a reliable source of fluff pulp to ensure we meet customer requirements.
Thermomechanical Pulp (TMP)
A type of paper pulp that is pretreated to enhance the finished product. This process is much more energy efficient in comparison to other pulping methods, as it helps to reduce energy consumption while producing a greater yield. TMP is used to manufacture print materials, including magazines and catalogues.
Often referred to as cellulose or viscose pulp, dissolving pulp is a specialty grade cellulose pulp that is chemically processed to produce a variety of products. This pulp solution is most often used in the manufacturing of textiles.
Bleached / Unbleached Bamboo Pulp
Bamboo pulp has gained in popularity due to its environmental benefits. This form of pulp possesses great paper making abilities due to its high cellulose content and long fibre length.
