Meadwestvaco: SBS tobacco paperboard

MeadWestvaco’s Promina™ solid bleached sulfate (SBS) tobacco paperboard is intended for use in premium tobacco packaging.

Using proprietary new technologies Promina™ is almost identical to its predecessor, Printkote® Tobacco, but has an average basis weight reduction of 7%. Promina’s benefits also include enhanced printability, runnability and consistency, producing a sheet that is 40% cleaner than MWV’s previous premium quality board offering. Promina also provides the same pack stiffness, useful for the hinge lid boxes. For a given amount of production, Promina (vs. Printkote Tobacco) is expected to: reduce overall energy consumption by 6%; reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 3%; use less water to produce.
