Rolls of Bleached Kraft Paper

Bleached Kraft paper undergoes a treatment using bleach and other chemicals to whiten and purify the natural Kraft pulp. Through this process, the paper becomes stronger than traditional brown Kraft paper. Because of this added strength, white bleached Kraft paper is used heavily in wrapping and packaging.
At Cheever Specialty, we provide a full range of Kraft paper to meet your project needs, and we also give you the option of having us hold your inventory. To discuss your new project, contact us today, or request a quote or sample.

Paper Grades for Bleached Kraft Paper

As bleached Kraft paper suppliers, we offer a full range of paper grades to meet your needs. Depending on your application, one specific type may be better than others.

Machine Glazed (MG) Bleached Kraft Paper

Machine-glazed bleached Kraft paper is known for its high rigidity and durability. It produces an exceptional high gloss on one side of the paper. This allows for the ability to have an opacity, printability and superb combination of runnability.
This grade of bleached Kraft paper is used primarily for:

Smooth Finished (SF) Bleached Kraft Paper

Smooth-finished bleached Kraft paper provides a soft calendar that is often needed for superior print quality, convertibility, and printability. This grade of Kraft paper is used frequently for:
  • Reel wrapping
  • Ream
  • Carrier bags
  • Fill & seal applications.

Machine Finished (MF) Bleached Kraft Paper

Machine-finished bleached Kraft paper is the most versatile paper grade in the Kraft family. Its high stiffness makes it the perfect match for high-speed converting machines. This paper shows up in:
  • Protective products
  • Carrier bags
  • Wrapping
  • PE laminated products
  • Aluminum foil lamination

Clay Coated Kraft (CCK) Bleached Kraft Paper

Clay-coated Kraft papers are often used for their dimensional stability and lay-flat benefits often used in the graphic art industry. CCK is often coated with silicone on one side and used for a release liner.

Applications and Industries for Bleached Kraft Paper

Because of its strength and durability, bleached Kraft paper can be found in a variety of commercial and industrial applications, especially rigid box applications.

Hygiene Release Liners & Release Base Papers

These are used often as a hygiene release liner in the femcare and light adult incontinence markets.


These are often developed for sterile medical packaging. They are also used in the direct sealing process for reels, pouches and FFS applications. Bleached Kraft paper will also provide barrier properties in various wound and adhesive medical applications. Cheever has current customers using these various papers. All of these papers adhere to FDA, International standards and main sterilization processes.

Laminating & Coating

Where Kraft papers offer high strength and superb consistence on the machine side, they are perfect for Coating and Laminating. Where there is very good dimensional stability and high stiffness, runnability is kept in check. With a wide range of basis weights and moisture profiles, mostly likely there is a product that we can fit for your project.

Shopping/Retail Bags & Carriers

Retail "white bags" are not going away any time soon. Their lightweight to strength combination has been one of their main advantages. With white, brown, printed, MG (machine glazed), grease resistance, or even ribbed, there is a "White Bag" that will fit your project. 
Bleached Kraft paper is used frequently in various grades for envelopes, as well as flour and sugar packages. You can also find bleached K1raft paper multiwall sacks for Feed and barbeque charcoal.  Often these bags will be PE coated for moisture or barrier protection.
