BillerudKorsnäs ready to take orders on the next generation cartonboard

BillerudKorsnäs are currently phasing in their next generation cartonboard for premium packaging solutions. A new generation of high-performance cartonboard with enhanced appearance and printability has been developed from close cooperation with customers and extensive remodelling of board machines.

"It is more than just a general facelift," says Magnus Levinsson, Business Segment Director Cartonboard, BillerudKorsnäs. "This is the next generation cartonboard, one that sets new standards for printability. We have made the print surface more even and applied a triple coating. This contributes to reduced white top mottling and improved colour printing. You get more even print, more vibrant colour, a wider colour gamut and more life-like colour reproduction. Furthermore, the new cartonboards offer improved quality consistency, which means that you can expect excellent results at all times."

BillerudKorsnäs offers a range of four highly specialized cartonboard grades, appreciated by premium brand owners for packaging upmarket products such as luxury beverages, fine foods, perfume, chocolate and health & beauty products.

BillerudKorsnäs White is a high-white cartonboard with a unique combination of strength, shapeability and printability. BillerudKorsnäs Artisan is a lightweight cartonboard with a silky-smooth surface, offering quality print as well as a nice haptic experience. BillerudKorsnäs Carry is a strong cartonboard for packaging and protection protection of heavy content, highly suitable for designs involving hanging or handles. BillerudKorsnäs Light is an ideal material for dry, chilled or frozen foods, moisture-proof and extremely pure.

"The launch is a big, complex process, that also includes grammage extensions," says Levinsson. "The new product benefits will be most apparent in Carry and Light. Besides the improved properties, the remodelling of the board machine ensures increased capacity."
