BillerudKorsnäs launches Pure DecorX™
The latest development in White Top Kraftliner made of 100% primary wood fibres
BillerudKorsnäs is introducing the latest development in White Top Kraftliner – Pure DecorX™.
Pure DecorX is a 3-ply construction made of 100% primary wood fibres, which makes the liner strong, stiff and with high thickness. The manufacturer claims that in practice this means great lightweighting opportunities, high runnability in converting machines, reduced risk of washboarding, and enhanced packaging performance. The use of only primary fibres also makes Pure DecorX a climate-smart choice: it is renewable, recyclable and biodegradable, and the fibres can be traced back to responsibly managed forestry.
Pure DecorX is coated for surface smoothness, yielding excellent print results in terms of lifelike image reproduction and colour fidelity. This makes the product very competitive in applications such as shelf-ready packaging, displays, and packaging of food & beverages and premium consumer goods.
‘Thanks to our knowledge, experience, and state-of-the-art technology we have been able to secure the quality parameters needed for the highest pre- and post-print demands in one product,’ says Rolf Gustafsson, Director Product Management Containerboard BillerudKorsnäs. ‘Customers can use just one coated quality for pre-print as well as for post-print – an extra benefit.’
The new liner is produced on KM7, the world’s most modern board machine. Product quality parameters are monitored in real time using advanced sensor technology, which ensures unique product consistency. And with the capacity of 550,000 tons a year, availability is secured.
BillerudKorsnäs is a world leading provider of primary fiber based packaging materials and have customers in over 100 countries. The company has 8 production units in Sweden, Finland and the UK and about 4500 employees in over 13 countries. BillerudKorsnäs has an annual turnover of about SEK 22 billion and is listed on Nasdaq Stockholm.
