BillerudKorsnäs presents two new low grammages of its flagship cardboard product, CrownBoard Prestige, which it believes are particularly suited to the graphics industry.
According to the company, CrownBoard Prestige 170 and 200 g / m² combine an “excellent print surface” with strength and formability. The technical properties of the card are apparently due to the capabilities of KM7, including advanced coating technology and in-line quality monitoring.
BillerudKorsnäs also claims that despite the low basis weights, it is a strong board, made of 100% primary wood fibers with a 3-ply structure. Therefore, it is possible to choose a light weight to reduce the weight of the packaging.
With CrownBoard Prestige, this can be done without compromising the performance of the package. The company emphasizes that weight reduction helps reduce costs and environmental impact, as less raw materials are used, less energy is required, less waste is generated and transport and storage needs are reduced. .
“Low weights are a line extension that opens up new possibilities for the graphics industry,” says Anders Gathu, Marketing Director for Cardboard at BillerudKorsnäs.
“This is thanks to a smooth, fully coated and very white surface. It is also well suited for digital printing, an economical option for shorter runs.
“In addition, the board is designed to give excellent results with printing techniques such as embossing, stamping, laminating and effect varnish. It’s cardboard that invites designers to push the limits.
With the addition of 170 and 200 g / m², the CrownBoard Prestige range includes ten weights – from 170 to 400 g / m².
