Mohawk Introduces the Only Premium Recycled Paper with Inxwell Technology
Press release from the issuing company
[Cohoes, NY] - Beyond providing the highest quality papers on the market, Mohawk has a longstanding commitment to environmental excellence. Mohawk now makes the only premium 100% recycled paper with Inxwell — Mohawk Options 100% Recycled.
96-bright, Mohawk Options 100% Recycled PC White is made with Mohawk’s exclusive Inxwell process, which provides superior offset printability including:
• Unusually high ink holdout with normal inks and printing presses
• Increased opacity for virtually no show through
• Dynamic, precise four-color process and photo reproduction
• Vivid images with clean highlights and great contrast
• Well-formed scores, folds and precise die-cuts
Mohawk Options 100% Recycled PC White:
• Made with 100% postconsumer waste paper fiber
• Made with electricity generated by wind power
• Acid-free and process chlorine free
• Independently certified by Green Seal and the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)
• A complete offering of text and cover basis weights and sizes
What is Inxwell?
Inxwell is a patented process developed by Mohawk Paper Mills to enhance the printability of uncoated papers. Papers made with this unique technology have the characteristic look and feel of premium uncoated paper but feature dramatically improved print performance and high opacity.
Mohawk and the Environment
Mohawk is continually striving to improve its environmental performance in both its processes and its products. In fall of 2003, the mill began offering Mohawk Options 100% Recycled for special orders.
The market demand was so strong that the mill is now offering the paper as a regular stock item. “Mohawk Options 100% Recycled is a smart way for printers and print buyers to demonstrate to their clients that they can be environmentally responsible without sacrificing print quality,” says Tom O’Connor, Jr., president and C.E.O. “Mohawk Options 100% Recycled is one of many forward-looking products now available from Mohawk,” he adds.
Mohawk backs up its environmental products with a strong history of environmental stewardship. The company recently received the Forest Stewardship Council [FSC] certification for two of its best-selling recycled paper lines, including new Mohawk Options100% Recycled. Mohawk is the only mill to carry FSC certification on a 100% postconsumer recycled paper grade. A member of the EPA’s Green Power Partnership, Mohawk recently became the first paper mill in North America to manufacture paper with non-polluting wind power.
