Smurfit Kappa and Mirri partner in MirriNor launch

A collaboration between Smurfit Kappa Norboard and the Mirri division of Celloglas has produced a new range of metallised film laminated boards.

MirriNor boards are based on Smurfit Kappa Sheetfeeding’s T-Flute microflute and said to combine the flexibility of the microflute with Mirri’s high quality, printable metallic film to offer a full colour print and premium quality finish with curvability and strength, while remaining super lightweight at 400g/m2 (850 micron).

The board element of MirriNor is a Smurfit Kappa T-Flute, which offers designers the ability to incorporate ‘curvable’ properties into their designs so that a carton no longer has to have regular geometry. Now, a combination of carton and tube is possible, delivering a highly ‘print receptive’ surface with significantly enhanced protective qualities over traditional carton board in a much lighter weight versus calliper product.

The high quality metallic film from Mirri is certified for use with the Color-Logic Process Metallic Color System. Celloglas also has a decorative print finishing side that offers a wide range of branded finishes which can be used in conjunction with MirriNor, including Celloscreen, Cellofoil, Cellotouch and Cellocover.

The film used to make MirriNor silver is from the Mirribio range and is made from renewable wood-pulp sourced from managed plantations, MirriNor is available in both biodegradable and non-biodegradable forms.

MirriNor, like T-Flute, is machine erectable and can be printed using UV Litho or conventional litho printing process (using fully oxidising inks).
