Pixelle expands natural kraft papers with GlazeStar NK

Spring Grove, Pa — Pixelle Specialty Solutions has announced the introduction of GlazeStar NK, a natural kraft facing paper designed for foil/scrim/ kraft (FSK) building and construction insulation – one of the most widely-used insulations in the industry today.

“The GlazeStar NK product features excellent strength characteristics as well as specific porosity and holdout properties for optimal adhesive bonding,” said Bob van Helden, vice president, specialty papers. “This translates to a stronger insulation construction for improved durability and energy efficiency.”

“GlazeStar NK features run-to-run consistency that is ideal for high-speed FSK lamination processes and for meeting the high performance standards necessary in demanding insulation applications. In addition, Pixelle’s natural kraft is an attractive natural shade adopted by many as their preferred standard,” said van Helden.

With basis weights ranging from 15# to 45#, Pixelle offers one of the most comprehensive portfolios of natural kraft papers manufactured in the USA. GlazeStar NK is manufactured on the A5 paper machine at Pixelle’s Androscoggin Mill in Jay, Maine. This machine manufactures a wide array of uncoated, bleached and unbleached Kraft papers, and is positioned to meet the demands for natural kraft papers.
