Abitibi-Consolidated Launches Innovative Offset

Press release from the issuing company

MONTREAL, Jan. 6 - Abitibi-Consolidated Inc. is proud to announce its newest paper product: INNOVATIVE OFFSET. Building on the successful introduction of ALTERNATIVE OFFSET and EQUAL OFFSET(R), INNOVATIVE OFFSET is an environmentally-friendly and cost-effective paper, delivering up to 20% savings through a lighter basis weight that provides stiffness and print quality. Totally Chlorine Free, INNOVATIVE OFFSET also requires approximately 50% less wood fibre than commodity offset. Produced at the Beaupra and Alma mills in Quebec, INNOVATIVE OFFSET delivers a brightness level of 81 and a whiteness of 90 and is surface-treated to assure better ink hold-out and on- press performance. "INNOVATIVE OFFSET brings added value to our customers and that is exactly what they were looking for", said Luc Ranger, Vice-President, Commercial Printing Papers. "The use of ALTERNATIVE OFFSET(R) and EQUAL OFFSET in lieu of uncoated free sheet has already helped our customers realise significant savings, and we are proud to help them further achieve their goals with the introduction of INNOVATIVE OFFSET", added Mr. Ranger.
