Promina® Style from MeadWestvaco is a next generation solid bleached sulfate (SBS) tobacco board intended for use in premium tobacco packaging.
This super-premium, single-ply board uses optical brighteners and a
controlled manufacturing process for ultra-white styling. The Promina line provides
efficiencies on converting equipment and cigarette packing lines at a
targeted 5-6% lower basis weight than their previous board. The manufacturing process produces a
sheet that is up to 40% cleaner than MWV’s previous high-whiteness offerings. It also provides reduced energy consumption, CO2
emissions and water usage compared with MWV’s Printkote Tobacco grades.
