About the Fulfill® E-325
The Fulfill® E-325 series allows papermakers to replace higher-cost pulp by increasing PCC loading levels three to five percentage points, from a typical level of approximately 20% up to 25%.
PCC is a specialty pigment for filling and coating high-quality paper. By substituting PCC for more expensive wood fiber, papermakers are able to produce brighter, higher quality paper at lower cost.
