More and more attention is paid to environmental friendliness when selecting packaging materials. Kotkamills Oy responds to the far-reaching requests of end customers of the packaging business to introduce high-quality recyclable barrier board to the market.
Kotkamills’ Folding Boxboard is a solution for various consumer product packaging needs. The high bulk and stiffness of the Kotkamills board make packages stand out proudly in the retail stores. The printability of our Folding Boxboard is excellent due to the smooth coated surface and optical properties of the board.
The new product includes the protection layers required to prevent grease, liquids or moisture from absorbing into the package. The versatility of the board is increased by its heat sealing capacity, cleanness, lightness and first-class printing surface. In the manufacturing process, special attention will be paid to the effective utilisation of wood raw material, and the minimisation of energy, bleaching chemicals and water consumption per each produced ton. A patent is pending for innovations associated with the manufacturing process. The next-generation packaging board facilitates the recycling activities of consumers as well as food producers, cafeteria and fast food chains. There is no longer a need to sort plastic separately for this large volume of food service packaging board. This directly reduces the total costs of the packaging solution.
