The new range of fashion conscious eco-friendly papers.

This is our new range of eco-friendly designed for packaging and creative work. The range has been given a distinctive flecked texture and appearance by adding process residues from fruits and nuts. It’s an ingenious idea that replaces up to 15% of virgin tree pulp.

The unique achievement is in creating an innovative paper that contains organic material that has optimal results in all major print and finishing processes and has the added benefit of outstanding green credentials.

We think Crush is the ultimate choice in eco-friendly paper that looks, feels and performs beautifully. From corporate literature and publishing to perfumery packaging and mailing, why don’t you make it your first choice?

 

Product Description

Crush is the ecological range of papers made using process residues from organic products (citrus fruits, corn, olives, coffee, kiwi fruits, hazelnuts and almonds) to replace up to 15% of virgin tree pulp.

Crush is certified FSC and GMO free, contains 30% post-consumer recycled waste and is produced with 100% green energy. The carbon footprint is reduced by 20% using by-products and 100% green energy.

Crush and the production process are patented.

At times slight differences may occur in paper shade, inclusions and look as a result of the use of natural raw materials.

Crush is recyclable and biodegradable.

Printing and finishing recommendation

Inks: We suggest to print Crush with good quality stay fresh inks.

Blankets: For a good graphic impression, use compressible blankets.

Picking: In case of slight dust due to the special composition of the paper, we suggest to add anti tack paste and wash frequently the rubber blankets.

Screens: For the offset printing process a screen value of 150 lpi is recommended. For dry offset printing this can be slightly higher, for example 200 lpi.

Drying Time: After printing, make small sheet pallets and allow 24 hours drying time. For heavier graphic elements and higher densities, sufficient powder should be applied.

Finishing: Prescoring is recommended for board weights and when folding against the grain direction.

For board weights, we suggest to enlarge the size of the creasing rule.

Digital Printing dry toner: Crush is suitable for dry toner digital printing.

Digital printing HP Indigo: Crush is not yet suitable for HP Indigo printing.

Printability and Runnability: Every method of printing, embossing, punching, die cutting, creasing, laminating and UV varnishing is possible.
