Choose your pulp based on which bleaching method suits you best
UPM RaumaCell is the only supplier in the world to offer three different fluff pulp grades based on the method in which our raw material, wood pulp, is bleached. Most commonly we produce pulp that is bleached without elemental chlorine (ECF). In addition, we offer fluff pulp bleached totally without chlorine (TCF). The third option is fluff pulp converted from unbleached wood pulp.
Totally chlorine free fluff pulp
The UPM BioBright TCF and UPM BioBright Airlaid TCF fluff pulps are
alternatives for those producers and consumers who prefer products
manufactured without any chlorine, chlorine dioxide nor any other
chlorine chemical compounds.
- No AOX (that defines the amount of organic chlorine compounds)
spreading in water nor in any other part of the environment.
- Significantly lower residual OX is beneficial in the hygienic end use
areas e.g. products in direct skin contact, food packaging and products
in food contact, such as cooking and filter papers.
- Provides the same excellent runnability and absorption qualities as
our other fluff grades.
Unbleached fluff pulp
Our production line also has the option and experience to produce
unbleached fluff pulp. UPM BioBrown is our naturally brown fluff pulp
- The wood pulp we convert to UPM BioBrown fluff has not been
bleached and therefore contains absolutely no bleaching chemicals.
- Provides the same excellent runnability as our other fluff pulp.
- Please note - UPM BioBrown is a made to order product.
