Metsä Board Launches New Cartonboard for Luxury Packaging

Superior smoothness gives excellent results in foil lamination

Metsä Board is launching a new cartonboard, Carta Allura, designed especially for luxury end-uses. Carta Allura has exceptional smoothness making it ideal for foil lamination, high-gloss varnish and other special effects. It also has high brightness and an attractive visual appearance that creates the right impression when used for premium products. Carta Allura is most suitable for beautycare, high-end food and beverages as well as graphic applications.

Carta Allura is lightweight yet firm, giving more cartons per tonne and enhancing sustainability. Its consistency and stiffness make production processes trouble-free. Its reverse side is also coated to ensure a good finish to the inside of the carton.
