The Jangro Eco Magazine


One of the reasons Katrin is the first-choice paper supplier for many of our customers is the fact that Katrin don't want you to buy just any brand of their handtowels and toilet tissues, instead, Katrin want you to buy the RIGHT handtowel and toilet tissue for your business!

That is why they have three quality grades of paper each with different qualities to suit your needs, budget and environmental stance.

To make your choice even easier, the three quality grades of paper are represented by different colours:

Katrin Basic Black 100% Recycled

Katrin Basic Black 100% Recycled paper 1 ply
The basic black paper is ideal for those just looking for a simple washroom paper at a competitive price. This 1 ply blue handtowels are great value and made from recycled pulp paper.

Recycled pulp is also called deinked pulp (DIP). DIP is recycled paper which has been processed by chemicals, thus removing printing inks and other unwanted elements and freed the paper fibres. The process is called deinking. DIP is used as raw material in papermaking.
