The difference between recycled kraft paper and ordinary kraft paper

24-08-2022

1. Differences in raw materials

Recycled kraft paper is mainly made of recycled pulp processed from more than 80% of waste paper as raw material, and also contains a small amount of wood pulp. Generally, the color of the pulp is not so clean, and there will be fluff and powder loss during printing.

Ordinary kraft paper, its raw material is bamboo pulp, straw pulp and other plant pulp. Does not contain harmful substances to human body.

2. Differences in use.

There is no essential difference between the use of recycled kraft paper and ordinary kraft paper.

However, recycled pulp often contains a large amount of impurities, so recycled kraft paper is slightly weaker than ordinary kraft paper in terms of physical properties and quality.

Recycled kraft paper products can be used when the requirements for paper quality and printing quality are not high, and when it is necessary to save costs and reflect environmental protection.

However, for those with high packaging performance and safety and hygiene requirements, such as kraft paper requiring high strength, high burst resistance and high toughness, or direct contact with food, ordinary kraft paper is recommended.

3. Price difference.

The most important factor affecting the price of kraft paper is the raw material.

The raw material of recycled kraft paper is recycled pulp, that is, waste paper pulp, so the price of recycled kraft paper is generally lower than that of ordinary kraft paper.

But this is not absolute, because the price of kraft paper will also fluctuate due to market factors.
