How is it produced?

First, the wood fibers are bleached and treated to produce a pulp. This is then pressed and dried before being wound into rolls to produce kraft paper sheets. These sheets can then be cut and folded by machines to make bags and other packaging, for example. 

Do you know who invented this material? It was the German painter Carl Ferdinand Dahl, who applied for a patent for a process to produce sulphate pulp in Gdansk in 1884. This was later used to produce kraft paper.

What are its strengths?

It is very robust and hard-wearing, which means that it can withstand heavy loads. It is also tear-resistant and has a high tensile strength. It is also well suited for packaging as it provides a good barrier against moisture and grease. 

Kraft paper is also very environmentally friendly as it is made from recycled materials and is biodegradable. This is a good choice if you are looking for sustainable packaging for your products.

In which packaging solutions can you find kraft paper?

It comes in various forms, including: 

  • Kraft paper rolls: These are available in various widths and lengths and are good for packaging purposes or protecting surfaces. 

  • Kraft paper bags: Ideal for retail or as gift bags. 

  • Kraft paper sheets: Suitable for craft projects, gift wrapping or printing labels. 

  • Kraft paper envelopes: Good for mailing documents or as an alternative packaging solution. 

  • Kraft paper boxes: These are sturdy packaging solutions for shipping goods or as storage containers.
