Today PPM “KAMA” one of the most high-tech companies in the pulp and paper industry. Here for the first time in Russia it was built production of LWC paper.
Production capacity – 85 000 tons of paper per year. This allows to substitute up to 25% of imports. The world’s first paper web for this type of paper is produced on the basis of raw aspen on technology developed and patented by our specialists.

PM №7– THE PRODUCTION OF LWC (85 000 tons per year).
|Mass m2 g||45 – 90||A wide range of products.|
|The roughness (PPS 10) μm||1.2 – 2.0||Complies with competitors.|
|Bulk cm3 / g||0.8 – 1.0||Complies with competitors.|
|Gloss (Hunter)%||20 – 55 (60)||Integrated 6-Shaft calendar will allow to produce matt, silk and glossy varieties.|
|Whiteness %||70 – 90||CTMP hardwood allows to get paper with high whiteness.|
|Transparency %||88 – 93||It depends on the grammage of paper. It corresponds to the level of competitors.|
The result a of project realization of a LWC production on the basis of raw hardwood:
- import substitution – annual decline of import expenditure on more than 3 billion rubles, providing more than 25% of the domestic needs of the printing industry;
- Introduction of new technology – the production of coated paper technology based on hardwood (birch, aspen) is unique in the world practice and developed by our specialists with the participation of leading international scientific organizations. Paper has been tested and corresponds to the requirements of modern printers. “Rospatent” declared PPM “Kama” priority on the developed technology.
- Involvement in the production of low-grade birch wood, which is approximately a 10-fold increase in the value added in the processing of 1 cu. m. of wood raw material.
