New KLS (NKLS)

New Printed or Unprinted corrugated case material.

New KLS

New Printed or Unprinted corrugated case material, usually misprinted or redundant stock from corrugated case manufacturers or industrial companies with excess corrugated box /case stock to dispose of. This grade to contain a minimum of 100% of corrugated board. The bales should ideally be brown in appearance as this is what is desired by most paper mills. Moisture levels permitted vary between 10% - 12% and the minimum amount of wires required is three per bale, however this may vary depending on the mill being supplied. Please be aware of any non-paper components or any foreign matter in the recovered paper and board which, during processing, may cause damage to paper machines or interruptions to paper production or may reduce the value of the finished product e.g. metal, plastic, glass, textiles, wood, sand, building materials, synthetic materials, synthetic papers.

 

Commonly used for: Manufacture of corrugated case materials (fluting and test-liner), solid packaging board (Grey-board), pulp packaging products, wrapping papers.

Highlander tip: New KLS is more attractive for paper mills as the material "dissolves" in the hydro-pulper quicker than standard 90/10 OCC - it is also a cleaner grade than 90/10 as there generally no contamination present. If you collect redundant or misprinted boxes on pallets, there may be opportunities for the material to be sold as "second life" packaging where the boxes are re-used as packaging rather than being recycled by pulping at a paper mill. This attracts better prices and incurs no baling costs.
