Finnish paper and pulp company Metsä Board has launched a new corrugated packaging liner Modo Northern Light at the Luxe Pack 2013 held at Monaco.
Modo Northern Light is claimed to be a lightweight, uncoated liner for microflute as well as traditional corrugated packaging that can be used for both the outer and inner packaging applications.
The new corrugated product can also be used for larger packaging applications such as online and mail order packaging, while it requires low washboarding as it offers better printability of both solids and screens with high contrast.
Additionally, the company also demonstrated its double-coated liner Carta Selecta, which offers more options when high gloss is required for corrugated packaging, displays, point-of-sale and shelf-ready packaging.
Carta Selecta has been designed for demanding multicolour litholamination and UV varnish and has a low cracking tendency.
Metsä Board Paperboard Beautycare & Healthcare commercial director Christophe Baudry said both Modo Northern Light as well as Carta Selecta complement the company’s product range by providing more options for its customers.
"They are made from fresh forest fibres grown in sustainably managed Nordic forests," Baudry said.
