Stora Enso now offers a new 370 g/m2 basis weight as part of its Performa Brilliance carton board range. The new, higher grammage is intended for high-quality folding cartons and graphical products such as calendars, cards and displays.
Introduced in 2015, Performa BrillianceTM sets a new standard for brightness, smoothness and visual appearance of folding boxboard (FBB). It is ideal for packaging cosmetics, fragrances, perfumes, beauty and hair care products and luxury products such as jewellery, watches, champagne and fine spirits. Graphical end uses include greeting cards, book covers, calendars and lottery tickets.
"Performa Brilliance offers the highest whiteness on both the top and reverse side of all FBB products in the market, and very high brightness and bulk. The new, higher basis weight enables our packaging and graphical customers to expand the use of Performa Brilliance to new applications, where you need high thickness," says Product Manager Eva Lundqvist.
Performa Brilliance is available with the FSC®, PEFCTM and EU Ecolabel certificates upon request. The entire range covers now 180, 200, 215, 230, 245, 260, 280, 300, 320, 345 and 370 g/m2 basis weights. The board is also available with linen embossing for a distinctive look and feel.
