NorX: improved newsprint for your offset printing needs

NorX improved newsprint has been developed to address the specific requirements of heat set web offset (HSWO) printers. This improved newsprint is available in reels. It has a surfaced appearance, a satin finish and high bulk, all of which contribute to very good print rendering, even with the lowest basis weights.

NorX is an innovative alternative, offering unparalleled value, and is suitable for printing advertising brochures and inserts, supplements, catalogues.

High-quality newsprint that cares for the environment

NorX fulfils all the requirements for sustainable development. Like Nornews, it is made from two-thirds recycled fibres and one-third new fibres. The wood used is derived from forestry by-products, thinning wood and sawmill chips that is exclusively sourced from sustainably managed forests. The PEFC™ and FSC® certifications of our chain of custody guarantee compliance in that respect. NorX has Ecolabel and Blue Angel approvals, and is a quality of newsprint that cares for the environment.
