PaperImpact is the European Trade Association for Speciality paper manufacturers. Today we have nine full member companies and two associate members. The full members are all paper manufacturers themselves, but as Associate members we welcome companies operating in sectors close to our speciality papers. The whole Speciality paper sector is very fragmented and sometimes it can be difficult to determine what paper grades belong to this sector.

The PaperImpact members produce mainly one-side coated paper for:

• Wet-strength and non wet-strength labels
• Pressure sensitive materials (self-adhesive)
• Flexible packaging

Typical end-uses for these products are:

• Beverages: beer, wines & champagnes, water, spirits like cognac & whisky etc.
• Food and non-food packaging: yogurt, dried soups, flour, sugar, ice-cream, chocolate, coffee, tea etc.
• Luxury and personal healthcare products like cosmetics, soap etc.
