Kotkamills' sawmill offers whitewood sawn timber for demanding joinery and construction end uses. The by-products of sawmill are used as raw materials of other products of the company: sawdust for Absorbex and wood chips for Consumer Board products.
Absorbex saturating bse kraft paper is a well-known brand that is a result of several decades of customer orientation and extensive R&D work. The main raw material of Absorbex is sawdust pulp. The company’s own pulp mill in Kotka is the biggest consumer of sawdust in Finland (nearly one million solid cubic metres annually) and the only pulp mill in the world that exclusively uses sawdust as a raw material. Another important raw material of saturating base kraft paper is recycled fibre (OCC). It is processed at the company's own recycled fibre plant into recycled fibre pulp, to be used with sawdust pulp in the manufacture of Absorbex Eco products.
Consumer Boards include board products for both general packaging and food service. Barrier board products are especially designed for protecting the food or packed items against moisture vapour and grease. Kotkamills' Consumer Boards include product brands AEGLE Folding Boxboards and ISLA Food Servce Boards. All consumer board products are easily recyclable.
