National Paper Products Company meets growing demand for paper polished core in the Bi-axially Oriented Polypropylene (BOPP) film market.

National Paper Products Company, located in Dammam, Saudi Arabia, successfully completed polished core trials in May, budgeting 1320 MT for 2011, to meet the demand of BOPP producers in the Gulf and Africa.

The paper packaging manufacturer has invested in numerous state-of-the-art technologies and machinery, including polish unit, cascade unit, and winding machine, in order to provide a strong and smooth well-polished core.

National Paper Products Company produces polished core with high level of smoothness, roundness, linear measuring, and surface hardness with no gap or wrinkles. The success of polished core production begins with perfect cascading of plies on the winding machine, resulting in very strong ply bonding, and therefore, higher crush values exceeding 2000N/m2.

Furthermore, production continues with the polishing and waxing process, where the core surface is grinded perfectly to avoid any gaps and ply overlaps that may have resulted during the winding process. This is to enable the client to wind their BOPP product with high speed up to 1000m/min with no wrinkles.

Finally, the waxing application will provide the shine and the final touch of the polished core for the BOPP product. BOPP film is used for the decorative, metalizing, packaging, stationery, as well as tape and label markets.

National Paper Products Company, paper converting company, serves the building material, chemical, dry food, petrochemical, and retail industries, as well as fast food franchises and meat producers in the Arabian Gulf, Middle East and Africa (MENA), and United Kingdom. The paper packaging manufacturer produces paper bags, multi-wall sacks, paper cores and paper sheets.
