Holmen EPIC has a brightness of 85 percent. It's whiter than you ever thought possible with anything other than wood-free paper. In fact, it’s bright enough to truly replace the wood-free alternatives. With EPIC, you get the desired whiteness, very high opacity and an almost unbeatable image reproduction. It's also very suitable for sheet fed printing.
A brighter affair
Like all our papers, Holmen EPIC is based on fresh fibres. Paper made from fresh fibre has a strong advantage compared to recovered fibre: it has higher bulk. Thanks to the strength and elasticity of the fresh fibres, the paper is more voluminous. The feeling is great, sturdy yet pliable, when you touch or hold the printed material. In other words, the paper weighs less while remaining its thickness. Holmen EPIC is available in grammages up to 70 gsm.
Uncoated for magazines
Uncoated wood-containing paper is natural and feels natural. Providing excellent whiteness, very high opacity and an outstanding image reproduction, this is a perfect choice for magazines and direct mail.
High bulk paper
There are many benefits with high bulk. Since the paper weighs less you can buy fewer tonnes and still keep the same thickness as a regular paper. You can also add more pages while still buying the same amount of paper. Or you can get a thicker end product.
In every way, Holmen EPIC is a brighter affair.
