Unbleached Softwood Kraft Pulp and Unbleached Electrical Grade 

The Prince George Mill has a dual production line supplying the specialty paper machine and producing UBK/UBE market pulp. The unbleached Kraft pulps are made from a mixture of prime softwood species (white spruce, lodgepole pine and subalpine fir) indigenous to the north central interior of British Columbia.

The highly versatile fibre properties supplied by the regional sawmills make these pulps highly suitable for use in the manufacturing of a wide variety of specialty products, especially those requiring the highest tensile strength and cleanliness.
