Mechanical pulp or 50 -100 % recycled fiber
Newsprint is manufactured either from mechanical pulp or recycled fiber. It is the most economical paper grade. Newsprint tends to be lightweight. In recent years, the average basis weight has continued to fall as lighter paper produces savings in transportation, handling and storage. The most important technical characteristic of newsprint is consistently reliable run ability. The most common printing method for newsprint is coldset offset, although letterpress and flexo printing can be used as well.
Printing of newspapers,magazines and less demanding advertising materials can also be printed on newsprint.
