Electraprime is the brand name for our specialty SCA alternative product. Its exceptional print properties and runnability make it a great option for SC paper printers in western and central North America. Electraprime is manufactured at our Powell River mill.
A higher brightness, higher opacity alternative to supercalendered-A (SCA) papers, Electraprime is the ideal solution for flyers and inserts. From its earliest trials, Electraprime has shown it is a cut above the competition. Its bulky composition gives it a more substantial “feel” than SCA, and it’s available for offset printing at very competitive prices.
