Catalyst produces and sells many grades of specialty papers, directory and newsprint as well as kraft pulp. Competitive and environmentally responsible paper and pulp making require both industrial-scale efficiency and artisan-like attention to detail, and involve highly skilled operators and the latest technology. The links below will take you to brief descriptions of how we make each of our major product types.
Thousands of years ago, people learned they could combine fibre and water into a slurry to create paper. While the basic concept has remained the same throughout the ages, today we do it on a much larger scale and at a much more advanced level of technology.
Kraft pulp is a distinctively high-strength type of pulp, and a key building block of many familiar and important products in our daily lives. This includes such things as printing and writing papers; tissues, coffee filters and other consumer products; and specialized applications like fibre cement and Japanese washi paper.
