information relative to the operation of their printing business, we have
organized a paper mill tour at Trust International Paper Corporation

1. To observe how pulp is converted into paper;
2. To understand how basis weight, thickness and density of paper
are controlled;
3. To know the factors that determine the strength and durability of
4. To understand the optical properties of paper such as brightness,
color, opacity and gloss;
5. To observe how the quality of paper is monitored and maintained;
6. To know how the quality of paper affects the quality of print.
Meeting place for departure will be at McDonald’s Eton Centris at 7:00
am. Transportation will be provided to Mabalacat, Pampanga. A
sumptuous lunch will be served at Abe’s Farm after the mill tour.
