LWC is a paper where both sides are coated with a white colour based on clay and other mineral pigments. LWC is short for lightweight coated. SCA has been producing LWC paper at Ortviken paper mill since the early 1990s. Ortviken has now established itself in the topmost quality segment among LWC producers. The success is founded on SCA’s combined strengths. The company’s large forest holdings, providing access to top-quality spruce raw material and control over the flow of raw materials, enabled it to base its paper production on fresh spruce pulpwood.

Fresh spruce

The close cooperation with the Östrand pulp mill has made it possible to design a reinforcing pulp with exactly the right properties, thereby keeping the proportion of kraft pulp at a low level. This is advantageous both for the optical properties of the paper and for production costs. SCAs extensive research and development resources have been a key platform for this success.

Strong environmental profile

LWC and all of our other publication paper products are FSC-certified and produced from pulp that is bleached without the use of any chlorine chemicals (TCF). Energy production is based, to a large degree, upon biofuels which enables us to have low emissions of fossil carbon dioxides.
