To Comply With Kraft Pulp Mill Residue Restrictions in Your Wood Waste Chips

Digestible log tags are designed to be completely acceptable by kraft pulp mills when mixed in with your sawmill's waste chips. This means that you don't have to spend valuable time removing tags from log ends before they are milled. Simply scan the barcode on the tag or record the number for your records before processing and leave the tag attached to the log.

What's the Difference Between Repulpable & Digestible Log Tags?

Both types of tags are made of the same 'wet strength' paper fiber base material, but the digestible log tags contain a special clear film overlamination on the front and/or back of the tag too. We typically recommend this type of tag if your sawlogs are kept under water or if they will be left in the log yard for extended periods of time...up to 9 months.

Digestible Film Overlaminated for Protection

This special film provides protection to the printed image, consecutive barcode and numbers. It is specially formulated to dissolve during the kraft process without leaving any residue in the pulp. So no matter what the weather and conditions...rain, snow, mud, dirt, can rest assured that the integrity of you barcodes and numbers are completely protected. If needed, simply wipe off the surface of the log tag to remove any residue and you'll be able to scan the barcode without fail.
