April 29, 2014 - Offering high whiteness, gloss, and premium printing properties, Modo Northern Light Litho is developed for litholamination and other offset applications, while Modo Northern Light Flexo is recommended for flexo preprint. Use of pure fresh forest fibers makes liners suited for food packaging and other sensitive products such as beautycare and pharmaceuticals. In addition, fully bleached liners are equally applicable for consumer packaging, point of sale, and shopping bags.

Following the great reception for uncoated Modo Northern Light, Metsa Board has launched two new double-coated fully bleached liners in its lightweight range. Modo Northern Light Litho is specially developed for litholamination and it is also suitable for other offset applications; Modo Northern Light Flexo is recommended for flexo preprint.

Both grades offer high whiteness, gloss and premium printing properties in lower substances. They are ideal for microflute, and provide new options in traditional corrugated applications. These liners are suitable for food packaging, including take-away foods, and other sensitive products such as beautycare and pharmaceuticals thanks to their use of pure fresh forest fibres. They are equally applicable for consumer packaging, point of sale, shopping bags, and any small or lightweight packs.

"The new coated Modo Northern Light grades are a welcome addition to our lightweight linerboard portfolio offering excellent printability," says Risto Auero, VP Linerboard Sales, Metsa Board. "It is possible to create a very light but strong corrugated structure by using both coated and uncoated Modo Northern Light in various combinations of top and reverse side liner, and the uncoated grade as fluting."

All Modo Northern Light grades have good strength characteristics, both in tensile strength/elasticity and compressibility, and have a low washboarding tendency thanks to their high bulk.

Modo Northern Light linerboards are manufactured at Metsa Board's Husum mill in Sweden, which holds PEFC and FSC chain of custody certification as well as environmental and quality certificates. They are made from fresh fibres grown in sustainably managed forests. The fibres are of known origin and Metsa Board can trace all other raw materials used in the liners' manufacture.
