Etex Bègles Paper Mill Raises Paperboard Performance, Paper360º March/April 2019

Etex Building Performance’s Bègles Paper Mill gave new life to its old refiners and got stronger, smoother paper for their branded gypsum board.

Just beside Bordeaux’s revitalized city cen-ter, Papeterie de Bègles produces paper for plasterboard made from 100 percent recycled furnish. This surface “facer” and back paper are critical for the quality and performance of plasterboard brands from Etex Building Performance (EBP), their customers, and parent company Etex, an international building products company.

Today, the Bègles mill’s 180 g/m2 ivory grade meets higher quality requirements, especially tear and tensile strength. Grey and color grades are also more consistent, and are produced with greater stability and efficiency.

TAPPI conference proceedings and presentations, technical papers, and publication articles provide technical and management data and solutions on topics covering the Pulp, Paper, Tissue, Corrugated Packaging, Flexible Packaging, Nanotechnology and Converting Industries.

Simply select the quantity, add to your cart and your conference paper, presentation or article will be available for immediate download.
