UK-based Warren has expanded its graphical and carton board grade product portfolio with the addition of StoraEnso’s new Ensocoat board.
Ensocoat is StoraEnso’s graphical solid bleached sulphate (SBS) board, which was recently upgraded to offer enhanced whiteness and shade for the products.
The new carton board can be used in various packaging applications, including perfumes, beauty care, champagne, wine and spirits, chocolate and confectionery and other luxury product sectors.
In addition, it will also be used for graphical end purposes such as book covers, greeting cards, calendars and others.
Ensocoat, which is said to possess all the properties required for the luxury packaging, has been developed based on customers’ insights.
With the support of a production process by bioenergy, Ensocoat is made by using renewable virgin fibre.
Warren commercial director John Turner said: “Luxury packaging typically involves embossing, foil stamping and other special effects that demand a lot from the material.
“With its superior smoothness, whiteness and folding properties, Ensocoat meets these demands while at the same time providing our customers with a board that, visually, surpasses anything else in the market.
“Stocked in depth, both ream wrapped and bulk packed, across a wide range of sizes, ‘NEW’ Ensocoat is available from our facility in Leicester for immediate despatch nationally.”
Warren, which is a member of the AIMS Group, provides a range of branded paper products to the customers. It mainly serves customers in the East and West Midlands, North East and South West areas of the country.
