CrownBoard Prestige® 170 and 200gsm combine an ideal printing surface with strength and shapeability. 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% primary wood fibres built up in a 3-ply structure.
Thanks to the strength, it is possible to choose a light grammage to reduce packaging weight. With CrownBoard Prestige®, this can be done without compromising packaging performance. 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.
‘The low basis weights are a range extension that opens up new possibilities for the graphics industry: eye-catching and strong book covers that also endure more and last longer and post cards and greeting cards with a surface that gives you vibrant colours and lifelike image reproduction. This is thanks to a smooth, fully coated and high-white surface. It is also well suited for digital printing – an economic option for shorter print runs. Furthermore, the board is engineered to yield great results with printing techniques such as embossing, foil stamping, lamination and effect varnish. This is cartonboard that invites designers to push limits,’ said Anders Gathu, Marketing Manager Cartonboard BillerudKorsnäs.
With the addition of 170 and 200gsm, the range comprises ten grammages – from 170 to 400gsm. The range is developed to meet the needs of discerning brands for packaging premium consumer goods such as luxury drinks, confectionery, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and the graphics industry. It is chosen for its packaging performance, visual appeal and sustainability credentials.
