BillerudKorsnäs is debuting two new low grammages of its flagship cartonboard product, CrownBoard Prestige.

Made at the company’s KM7 modern board machine, the low grammages are particularly interesting for the graphical industry.

CrownBoard Prestige 170 and 200 gsm combine strength and shapeability onto the printing surface.

The technical properties of the board are due to the capabilities of KM7, including advanced coating technology and state-of-the-art online quality monitoring. Despite the low basis weights, it is a strong board, made of 100 per cent primary wood fibres built up in a three-ply structure.

The carton board is suitable for digital printing, and for adding techniques such as foil stamping, embossing, lamination and effect varnish.

With the addition of 170 and 200 gsm, the CrownBoard Prestige range now comprises ten grammages – from 170 to 400 gsm.

Thanks to its strength, it is possible to choose a light grammage to reduce packaging weight. Lightweighting saves cost and reduces environmental impact, because less raw material is used, less energy is needed, less waste is generated, and transport and warehousing requirements are reduced.
