New opaque paper for inserts of medications, leaflets, manuals and legal text applications

Mondi launches IQ Extralight. The new opaque paper solution is produced at Mondi Neusiedler, Austria, and targets the uncoated premium segment in opaque paper for inserts of medications and cosmetics, operating manuals, catalogues, directories or legal text application. IQ Extralight offers an excellent printability, folding performance and is developed for both web and sheet-fed offset printing.

Mondi’s new paper solution is FSC™ certified and optionally available as carbon neutral to support customers in improving their CO2 balance. It is part of Green Range, Mondi´s umbrella trademark for sustainable paper solutions, and produced in compliance with the FSC™ certification scheme as well as with EC regulation 1935/2004 on materials and articles intended to come into contact with food. The new IQ Extralight paper is now available in folio and reels in 40, 45, 50 and 60 g/m2 across Europe.

Ideal solution for high productivity print runs

Thanks to its excellent printability and runnability, IQ Extralight offers high productivity print runs. The optimised folding performance of Mondi’s new opaque paper further ensures trouble-free processing due to its excellent folding properties and high stiffness including a high luminescence factor for automatic scanning. These attributes make IQ Extralight the ideal solution for clients requiring a high standard in both web and offset printing. The high opacity of IQ Extralight guarantees excellent readability, supporting the automated quality control by its outstanding sheet formation.

“It is our aim to constantly produce high quality products that not only meet the evolving needs of our clients but are also sustainable by design. With our new IQ Extralight we offer a high quality product to the uncoated premium segment in opaque paper and enable our clients to take their web and sheet-fed offset printing machines to a new, even more efficient level,” says Johannes Klumpp, Marketing & Sales Director at Mondi Uncoated Fine Paper.
