Munksjö launches 2 new base papers dedicated to metallized beer labels

Munksjö launches Metalkote Expert and Metalkote Classic, new base papers dedicated to metallized beer labels

Munksjö announced today the extension of its range of base papers for metallizing, specially dedicated to premium wet-glue beer labels. The product offering consists of two new one-side coated papers: Metalkote Expert for returnable beer bottles and
Metalkote Classic for one-way beer bottles.

Metalkote Expert has been specially redesigned for returnable beer bottles. This new base paper is an upgraded version of Metalkote Evolution. The improved paper surface of Metalkote Expert provides an optimized varnish consumption and outstanding gloss after metallizing. Performances in die-cutting have also been increased while Munksjö maintained its best balance of technical features for
enhanced brand image and optimized performance: high runnability in the metallizing process, high printing speed, trouble-free labelling, and quick, cost-efficient wash-off.

Metalkote Classic is a high quality base paper newly-developed for one-way beer bottles. This product also meets the technical requirements of the metallizing process, and enables high performance during printing and labelling. It well completes the
Metalkote range by offering a dedicated solution for single-use bottles.

"With the review of our Metalkote range, we offer to metallizers, printers and brewers different paper solutions to meet more precisely the need of each end-use market, whether for returnable or one-way bottles. Those product launches are well aligned
with our strategy to maintain our leading position as specialty paper producer for the metallized label business. For more than 20 years, we have been supporting the industry and are still committed to continue." comments Adeline Saillard, Vice-President, Metallizing and Facestock Base Papers.

Metalkote Expert and Metalkote Classic are one-side coated papers manufactured at the Stenay mill, France. The mill manufactures one-side paper for wet-glue metallized labels, flexible packaging and facestock applications as well as clay-coated paper for release liners.
