Technical product specifications

We do not produce paper. Our focus is entirely on developing and delivering the best possible pulp. Whether you manufacture milk cartons, sandpaper or tissue, we help to find the optimum solution based on your needs and challenges. There is a large number of choices and options within all of our product groups.

Södra produces many different pulps. In fact, we offer more options than any other competing pulp producer. We believe that our extensive portfolio makes it easy for you to fulfil a wide range of demands in various end-use areas.

The idea behind our softwood concept is wood segregation. Three kinds of raw material enter Södra’s woodyards; softwood thinnings, roundwood and sawmill chips. These different materials are carefully mixed to achieve different paper properties.

Information about the production process

Our product family

The softwood products (NBSK) are branded in three groups called Södra black, Södra blue and Södra green. Hardwood pulp (NBHK), which is made from birch, is branded Södra gold.

Product Description
Södra black Södra black is made from large numbers of juvenile spruce and pine trees removed in thinning operations. The pulp fibers are therefore thin and flexible, with an ability to form many kinds of strong bonds in the paper. Södra black also produces a paper with high density, and a smooth and even surface with an ability to form very strong Tensile, Burst and Z-strength properties in the paper . This pulp is also easy to process, which improves the energy efficiency of paper production.
Södra blue Södra blue is made from several different types of spruce and pine. This mix of raw materials produces a pulp that is ideal for paper requiring a high Tensile strength without sacrificing Tear strength  and  runnability
Södra green Södra green is mainly produced from sawmill chips of spruce and pine, which have long and strong fibres. The pulp is therefore ideal as reinforcement pulp, keeping a very high Tear at a given Tensile strength.. The pulp also helps to give paper high porosity, stiffness and bulk.
Södra gold The raw material in Södra gold is hardwood, which has shorter fibers than softwood. The advantage of these short Birch fibres is that they combine a good formation in paper with excellent Tensile and Z-strength. In Tissue , these fibres will also create a very soft sheet.
