Sappi will present its latest innovative papers and board packaging solutions at this year’s Packaging Innovations Show taking place in London from 30 September to 1 October.

Sappi’s demonstrations include the sustainable and recyclable packaging grades such as Algro® Guard M and Leine® Guard M, offering Mineral Oil Barrier functionality to safeguard food from contamination. Also featured at the show will be Sappi’s award-winning bright white carton board Algro Design®; the premium white topliner Fusion® for lamination to carton and corrugated cardboard; and biodegradable packaging solutions like Algro® Nature, a certified home compostable flexible packaging substrate that is based on renewable raw materials, as is the case with all Sappi papers.

Produced to high quality ISO standards as well as FSC accreditation, Sappi Speciality papers have been developed to meet the growing requirements of brand owners and converters for grades that address improved shelf presence and brand image, environmental and sustainable impact, enhanced productivity and functionality as well as concerns around
food safety.

Speciality papers from Sappi give customers an array of options to improve shelf presence and brand image ranging through flexible packaging, premium SBS board, topliner for high quality corrugated packaging, wet glue applied label paper enabling strong on-shelf appeal packaging papers offering stiffness and pack strength, silicone base papers for carriers for self-adhesive products, and home compostable papers.

Sappi’s family of coated paper products offers a variety of packaging applications ranging from sachets and pouches for the food industry to confectionery wrappers and labels. Enhancing environmental sustainability with Algro Nature, Sappi is presenting a home compostable paper packaging solution.

The Algro Guard M and Leine Guard M sustainable and recyclable packaging materials are designed to address concerns about migration of mineral oil into food from packaging that is manufactured from recycled fibres. The integrated solution of mineral oil barrier functionality combined with excellent heat sealing properties minimise converting process steps and considerably reduce costs in the supply chain.

Presented at the show will be Fusion®, a premium-quality, bright white premium liner. Composed of white bleached virgin fibres, this top liner has achieved success among a number of stakeholders in the packaging supply chain, ranging from corrugators to litho laminators and finishers of folding cartons, as well as print finishers, designers, agencies and brand owners.

Fusion outperforms standard white-top liners and gives colour, thanks to its high white finish. It prints an unprecedented brilliance and saturation, whereby the finishes have a very tactile appeal. The top liner Fusion convinces with excellent converting properties and production advantages such as 30% less glue consumption, less cracking, high runability and reduced transportation and storage costs.

For many brand owners, packaging manufacturers and finishers, Sappi’s superior SBS carton board Algro Design is the first choice when it comes to printability and virtually limitless processing and finishing options. It guarantees maximum precision, value and consistent quality. Algro Design from Sappi is one of the most popular coated cellulose carton brands. The product range impresses with superior whiteness, consistent surface finish, very high light resistance and a silky smooth touch.
