A white directory paper made from recycled fibres

A lightweight yet strong directory paper with low bulk and good opacity, Alfa is a white directory paper with ISO brightness 58.5% for HSWO printing.

Alfa by Stora Enso, a directory paper made up of 100% recycled fibres, is highly valued for its low bulk and good opacity. Light yet strong, it delivers great press performance while providing the opacity and brightness you need to achieve superior colour reproduction.

Traditionally used for phone books and directories, it can be used in other applications calling for lightweight papers. Like all our papers, it is recyclable and made from wood procured from sustainably managed sources.

Alfa comes in a grammage range of 34–40 gsm. Designed for heat-set web offset (HSWO) printing. Available as reels.
