Artist Greenbord Product Information
Lignin is what holds cellulose fibers together in wood, and can also cause degradation of paper products from wood. Artist Greenbord is a Solid Bleached Sulfate (SBS) paperboard, the highest quality and most expensive paper board substrate. It is produced from bleached wood pulp. There is almost no lignin in SBS paperboard. It is removed in the pulping, washing and bleaching process. Although lignin is not measured in the paperboard directly, the degree of delignification by Kappa number and of course pulp brightness is how it is measured and what defines SBS paperboard. Lignin does not reveal itself when measuring lignin on the cellulose fibers in Artists Greenbord using FTIR spectroscopy, so it is less than 1 ppm. Other grades of paperboard, such as unbleached, mechanical pulp, and bleached chemical-thermal-mechanical pulp (BCTMP) grades, have more measurable lignin content.
