Cocoon Silk 100 - Recycled Papers

Cocoon Silk 100

A 100% recycled and silk-coated paper, Cocoon Silk 100 is FSC® Recycled certified yet delivers the same impressive performance as non-recycled papers. As well as excellent runnability, printability and whiteness (CIE 126), its exceptionally high-quality surface brings out the best in printed images for eye-catching communications.

Cocoon Silk 100 is made from 100% FSC® Recycled pulp and post-consumer waste paper. This reduces waste sent to landfill, greenhouse gas emissions, as well as the amount of water and energy consumed. It also negates the need for wood as a raw material – further reinforcing your CSR commitment.

Suitable Applications

In the right grammage, Cocoon Silk 100 is ideal for:

Report and accounts, brochures, leaflets, direct mail, books (silk finish), catalogues, luxury magazines, greeting cards, invitations, menus, business cards, posters (depending on required opacity) and envelopes.
