Verso Corp., a producer of flexible packaging, technical, and label and converting papers, introduces GlazeTape, a family of water-activated and paint-masking tape base papers, and announced the expansion of its GlazeWrap family of lightweight uncoated machine-glazed (MG) papers for food and medical flexible packaging.
The GlazeTape product family, designed as base paper for industrial tape end-uses, ranges from water-activated tapes used in shipping and construction to oil and grease resistant (OGR) paint-masking tapes used in applications, appliances and other durable goods manufacturing applications.
The GlazeWrap product family, utilized as lightweight laminating base papers for food and medical flexible packaging applications, is now expanded to include new basis weights as low as 14.8 lb (3,000 sq ft), complementing an existing portfolio that ranges up to 40 lb (3000 sq ft). The GlazeWrap product is designed to laminate to film or aluminum foil for food pouches and bags and as a wax saturation base paper for food wraps.
The GlazeTape product family is produced by Verso on the No. 5 paper machine at its Androscoggin Mill in Jay, Maine, and is available in a range of basis weights and Kit levels for OGR. The GlazeWrap product family is produced by Verso at both the Androscoggin Mill and Stevens Point Mill in Wisconsin.
