Tea and Coffee Filter Papers
The Glatfelter product line of tea and coffee filter papers is divided into two categories: heat-sealable and non-heat-sealable papers. Customers of Glatfelter filter papers manufacture both one-chamber bags as well as double-chamber bags. Low basis weights combined with high strength ensure that Glatfelter papers are ideally suited for use with different packing machines. Flavor infusion, increased particle retention and wet strength are key features of all Glatfelter tea and coffee filter papers.
Glatfelter filter papers are made of oxygen-bleached or unbleached raw materials and are therefore friendly to the environment. Depending on the need of Glatfelter papers can be plain, patterned or decorated with a logo:
Non-heat sealable filter papers
All Glatfelter non-heat sealable filter papers consist of a single layer of 100% natural fibers. Dimensional stability and ease of crimping are key characteristics of Glatfelter filter papers.
Heat sealable filter papers
All Glatfelter heat sealable filter papers consist of two layers: the filtration layer and the sealing layer. Depending on customer requirements and needs, the filtration layer consists of various combinations of abaca fibers, wood pulp and cellulose rayon fibers. The sealing layer can also vary in composition and be made of polyethylene mixed with copolymers, polypropylene mixed with copolymers or 100% polypropylene. The various combinations of natural and synthetic fibers found in Glatfelter filter papers have been optimized to provide high strength at the sealing joint and excellent cut-ability of heat-sealable filter papers.
