CheckSecur Platinum Enviro wins PPI Innovative Product Award

Monday, November 26, 2012

Press release from the issuing company

Saint-Jérôme, Quebec, - Cascades has once again garnered a coveted Pulp & Paper International (PPI) Award. This time, with its newest product innovation, an environmentally friendly security paper made with 100% post-consumer fiber: CheckSecur Platinum Enviro. Customers can now reach their environmental objectives while being protected against the most sophisticated forms of fraud.
The technology of using post-consumer fibers to produce securedocuments was almost nonexistent. As customers were seeking additional environmental attributes for their security papers, Cascades' innovation took on the challenge - and prevailed. Drawing on 45 years of recovery and de-inking expertise alon g with extensive R&D, Cascades manufactured a unique UV dull pulp made with 100% post-consumer fiber. Strong partnerships with our customers allowed us to test the new paper on different press technologies, a crucial step before going to market.
CheckSecur Platinum Enviro maintains all the advanced security features of traditional virgin fiber papers, including a multi-tone watermark, yellow-fluorescent invisible fibers and blue-visible fibers, chemical reactive treatment, SecurLaser PlusTM technology and MICR-OCR compatibility. Environmentally speaking, using 10,000 CheckSecur Platinum Enviro checks rather than its virgin equivalent saves: 1 tree, 993 gal. of water, 326 lb. of air emissions and 125 lb. of solid waste. Impressive numbers for a premium security paper.
"As a leader in sustainable development, it was natural for Cascades to innovate towards a more sustainable solution. CheckSecur Platinum Enviro differentiates us from the competition and addresses a long-standing market need for environmentally friendly products, without compromising document security." - Normand Champagne, General Manager, Security Papers, Cascades Fine Papers Group.
