Metsä Board Corporation : Enhanced folding boards

Lighter boards and optimized shades among benefits.
Metsä Board has made major enhancements to its Avanta Prima, Simcote and Carta Elega folding boxboards, following technical improvements made at its mills during the 2011–2012 investment program. The product enhancements improve the suitability of each cartonboard in the range for a particular packaging end-use such as food, beautycare, healthcare, or luxury packaging, and graphics applications.

The bulk of Avanta Prima has been improved, meaning a lighter weight can be specified while maintaining the same thickness and stiffness. As a result, Metsä Board has further light-weighted grammages across the range. Avanta Prima has been developed to meet the requirements of the healthcare market, and its surface has now been optimized to allow for 2D data matrix coding. Its shade has also been optimized to enhance visual whiteness.

Simcote, already offering an outstanding combination of stiffness and consistency for food packaging, now has improved bulk for even better yield while maintaining the same thickness and stiffness. As a result, grammages have been light-weighted across the range, providing both cost and sustainability benefits.

The shade of Carta Elega has been optimized to enhance visual whiteness – an important characteristic in the beautycare market.
