KapStone Paper and Packaging Corporation: Natural paperboard for beverage cartons
KapStone Charleston Kraft’s ultra-lightweight .020/58# Kraftpak is a high-performance natural kraft paperboard designed for beverage cartons.
Available in 10 standard caliper grades ranging from .013 in. to .030 in., Kraftpak is an unbleached kraft paperboard with natural fiber composition and ultra low-density for very low package weight. Its uniform brown surface provides a clean, organic look and quality printability. Because Kraftpak provides high strength per pound, it is said to offer higher carton yield (20% to 25% more carriers) per ton than conventional paperboards, and can achieve overall package weight reductions of up to 25%. Using natural kraft fibers procured only from responsibly managed forests, KapStone’s Charleston Mill has earned multiple accreditations including FSC®, SFI®, PEFCTM and ATFS certifications.
