The new Acadia 2000 is a premium one-side coated paper claimed to have superior bulk and excellent smoothness. The wet strength label resists disintegration and rupture when exposed to water or other moisture build-up, making it suited to replacing the plastic-type label. The material is aimed at soft drinks, juice, coffee, beer, wine and other cold liquid food packaging, where it can withstand varied temperatures and humidity.

All pulp and fibre used in the making of APP’s paper products are certified by PEFC, the world’s leading forest certification organization. Only products that utilize sustainable procurement of wood and paper-based goods are awarded this certification.
