FutureMark Paper Introduces New 100% Recycled Coated #3 Freesheet Line

Future Vantage paper offers a 70 gloss finish, a high brightness rating of 88 and is comprised of 100% recycled content.

April 11, 2014 - FutureMark Paper Group announced the launch of Future Vantage, a 100% recycled coated #3 freesheet.

According to FutureMark, until now, there has not been a 100% recycled option for high-end corporate marketing materials and magazine, catalog, book, direct mail and retail applications. Previously, recycled content was only available if specified by the buyer and typically the maximum available was 30%.

Future Vantage is ideally suited for a variety of print applications across a number of market sectors, including financial services, retail, fashion, travel, automotive and telecommunications.

“Following the recent introduction of our recycled paper innovations in the book, digital inkjet and label markets, we are proud to deliver another breakthrough product to the coated freesheet market,” stated Steve Silver, President & CEO of FutureMark Paper Group. “With Future Vantage, there are no compromises — it is the first coated #3 freesheet with both 100% recycled content and excellent paper qualities some might traditionally associate with non-recycled products.”

According to the Environmental Paper Network's Paper Calculator v. 3.2, 100% recycled coated freesheet generates 30% less greenhouse gas emissions, consumes 46% less water and requires the harvest of 20,000 fewer trees (per 1,000 tons of coated freesheet paper produced) compared to non-recycled coated freesheet. These unmatched environmental benefits, combined with a unique coating design and enhancements made to the de-inking process, enables producers of print materials to feel good about their paper choices by selecting a 100% recycled option.

Future Vantage paper offers a 70 gloss finish, a high brightness rating of 88 and is comprised of 100% recycled content. Future Vantage is available in 50, 60, 70 and 80 pound basis weights and is immediately available through FutureMark's sales force. FSC, SFI and PEFC certified products available on request.
