Sappi Expands its Container Board Product Range
Brussels, Belgium 10 January 2018 -- (News release) -- Sappi says it's expanding its container board product range and with Fusion Uncoated, which offers an uncoated fresh fibre liner in the corrugated board market.
Fusion Uncoated is approved for direct food contact and is recommended for use when branded product manufacturers, designers and corrugated board processors are seeking an alternative to brown liner papers. These applications include inner packaging such as white corrugated board inserts for high-end perfume boxes as well as food packaging. These often-unprinted cartons present a luxury surface finish thanks to their high level of whiteness. Other application's include display and shelf-ready packaging, for which uncoated paper finishes are often the preferred option.
Fusion Uncoated is produced at the Sappi plant in Stockstadt, Germany, which has many years of experience in the manufacture of uncoated papers. Currently there are seven weights available, from 70 to 130 g/m2,in sheet and roll formats. As with Fusion Topliner, the low weights meet the rising demand for weight savings with corrugated board packaging.
Also, as a special requirements for food packaging, another version of this liner has recently been developed, without the addition of optical brighteners and is offered under the name Fusion Uncoated OF.
