Fast, bold and vivid
ColorLok® Technology brings out the wow in print
You’ve probably spotted the CMYK-colored logo on the Multicopy packaging at some point. ColorLok technology is one of many features that ensure the excellent print quality of our premium office papers. But do you know what it stands for or how ColorLok® works? Here’s a short explanation and links to further exploring.
What is ColorLok®?
It’s a standard for better print quality. Paper that‘s qualified with the ColorLok logo is able to produce the best possible digital prints for both inkjet and laser printers. The technology makes sure that the papers of the Multicopy range provide consistent, reliable and great looking printing on all office machines. Print with bolder blacks and more saturated, vivid colors. Print that dries faster, hence doesn’t smear or blur.
How does it work?
This is the company’s brief and easy description of the rather advanced technology:
“During the paper-making process, a chemical additive is incorporated into the paper to “lock” pigments at the surface. Without this technology, paper acts more like a sponge, absorbing black and color pigments deep into the paper and away from the surface.
The result is a highly absorptive and fast-drying product”
The technology truly creates a big difference in color saturation as well as density and sharpness of blacks. And on top of adding a certain level of quality and va-va-voom to printing, ColorLok® has environmental benefits; since the ink stays on the paper surface, the paper offers enhanced recyclability by facilitating the ink removing – a key step in recycling. Enhanced recyclability … that’s like music to our ears!

Humans’ urge to communicate has always been strong – and with the evolution of paper, the written form of communicating opened a whole new world of efficiency, suddenly dismantling geographical boundaries. Naturally, the history of papermaking is closely connected to societal, industrial, and cultural events.
Eco-awareness and higher demands on sustainability features among customers tend to lead to good things. One current example is the initiated project at Stora Enso to certify all paper pulp grades as compostable, to helps consumers make more eco-friendly choices.
In 2021, the Multicopy production base in Nymölla mill took a step further in the fossil free journey, with Stora Enso entering a partnership with energy company Gasum. We had a talk with Erik Woode, Director, Project Development & Execution, at Gasum, to get a status update after one year of turning residue water from production into fossil free fuel.
