Domtar makes products that people around the world rely on every day. We design, manufacture, market and distribute a wide variety of pulp, paper and personal care products from copy paper to baby diapers.
Wood fiber, a renewable resource, is at the heart of Domtar's products. Our wood fiber comes from responsibly managed forests in North America.
Guided by our core values of agility, caring and innovation, Domtar makes products that contribute to a more sustainable world – socially, environmentally and economically. Here are just a few of the ways our products are contributing to a better world.
Paper is integral to communication, literacy, and food and medical packaging.
Paper has been used to record history for more than 2,000 years. Seventy-eight percent of Americans keep hard copies of important documents at home as they believe this is the safest and most secure way of storing information.*
Print on paper promotes literacy and education. Americans believe they understand, retain and use information better when they read on print.*
Print on paper is enjoyable, relaxing and practical. Seventy-three percent of Americans feel that reading a printed book or magazine is more enjoyable than reading it on an electronic device.*
Paper packaging keeps products sanitary, secure and fresh.
Our paper is used by manufacturers of innovative food packaging, such as pouches and wraps, cookie and chip bags, candy wraps and take-out bags.
Our specialty paper is used by manufacturers of drinking straws, cotton swabs, lollipops and grocery bags as alternatives to FOSSIL FUEL-BASED plastics.
Pulp is an essential fiber building block that enhances a variety of everyday consumer products and innovative industrial applications.
Lighthouse® Fluff PULP is used worldwide by manufacturers of absorbent personal hygiene products, including baby diapers, incontinence and feminine hygiene items.
Lighthouse X fluff pulp is used to make diaper cores more dense and compressible, thereby improving the performance of the core and enabling the production of thinner diaper products. This reduces the amount of material used and makes diapers more discreet for the wearer.
Our Northern and Southern softwood pulp products are key components for manufacturers of premium tissue and towel products that contribute to good personal hygiene.
Biomaterials are increasingly replacing fossil fuel-based products with renewable products from trees.
For decades, our chemical pulp mills have produced biomaterials for use in a wide variety of consumer products, including soap, toothpaste, makeup, fragrances and food flavorings.
Our biomaterials are used in commercial and industrial products as antimicrobials, antioxidants, binders, lubricants, and to provide higher strength and lower weight.
Domtar continues to develop new biomaterial technologies and partnerships that position us to lead the shift from a fossil fuel-based to a low-carbon, bio-based economy.
Personal care products improve sanitation, skin health and comfort, and provide dignity.
Our adult incontinence products provide comfort, dignity and mobility to millions of users.
Our Comfees® baby diapers enhance skin health, comfort and fit for the infant, and offer convenience for parents.
In the U.S. alone, over 27 billion disposable diapers are consumed every year. Unfortunately, 92 percent of single-use diapers end up in a landfill. We are working on innovations to make our products lighter weight and to reduce end-of-life environmental impacts with solutions SUCH AS compostable diapers.
