Title: Comparison of 60# white converter kraft to 60# white Velumina kraft for use in multi-wall paper bags
Author: Eavey, Brenda
Abstract: This study was designed to analyze the change from 60# Gilman white converter kraft to 60# Georgia-Pacific white Velumina kraft on the outer ply of multi-wall paper bags. Logisitical issues were driving the change but Good Manufacturing Practices had to be observed as the bags were being used for Food and Drug Administration registered medicated animal feed products. The papers were tested for physical strength and print quality. Results showed that the 60# Georgia-Pacific white Velumina kraft was equal to the 60# Gilman white converter kraft in physical strength and slightly better in print quality. Both papers met the performance standards of the current application and either paper could be used with confidence that bag performance would not suffer.
