Metsa Board Introduces New Liner, Modo Northern Light, at Luxe Pack 2013
Press release date: October 23, 2013
Improved cartonboards for beautycare also on display.
Metsä Board introduced a new fully bleached liner at Luxe Pack 2013. Modo Northern Light is a lightweight, uncoated liner with high whiteness, ideal for microflute as well as for traditional corrugated packaging. It is applicable both for outer and inner packaging in high-quality applications such as beautycare.
Modo Northern Light comes in a low substance range from 17 – 33# (80-160 g/m2) and a bright white shade, making it ideal for microflute applications such as perfume and other beautycare packaging. It also works well in larger packaging, for example, online and mail order packaging. In corrugating it has a low washboarding tendency thanks to its bulk, and printability of both solids and screens is excellent, with high contrast. It can be used as a top liner, as fluting and as a reverse side liner. Modo Northern Light is manufactured at Metsä Board’s Husum mill in Sweden.
Metsä Board also showed its double-coated liner, Carta Selecta, which provides even more options when high gloss is required for corrugated packaging, displays, point-of-sale and shelf-ready packaging. It is designed for demanding multicolor litholamination and UV varnish. It also has a low cracking tendency, so folds and creases stay in pristine condition. Carta Selecta was previously only available in the US markets.
"Both Modo Northern Light and Carta Selecta complement our product range by providing more options for our customers," says Christophe Baudry, Commercial Director Beautycare Healthcare, Metsä Board Paperboard. "They are also a good choice in terms of sustainability. They are made from fresh forest fibers grown in sustainably managed Nordic forests."
