Global manufacturer of fiber-based covering materials FiberMark has launched a new portfolio of folding carton products, which have been engineered to meet the design demands of the spirits packaging market.
The new dyed-through board materials, according to the company, offer deep color saturation that does away with white edges in the finished product.
FiberMark’s premium board portfolio includes Grafton, a premium board with an uncoated vellum finish; Dorset, a board with a matte pigment-coated finish; and Metal-X and Shimmer, luxury board products with decorative coatings.
The new US-made FSC certified packaging boards are available in various custom colors, including custom color duplex solutions, a wide variety of embossed patterns, and include recycled content.
The durable boards exhibit scoring, folding and gluing properties and resistance to cracking and scuffing, and are available in three calipers (12pt, 18pt and 26pt) and provide a refined alternative to white SBS.
FiberMark noted that the performance boards are suitable for folding carton applications and also for branding projects.
FiberMark new business development senior vice-president Dr Robert Conforti said, "We are pleased to introduce this new portfolio of paperboard products that brings sophisticated visual appeal coupled with superior performance to luxury wine and spirits brands."
