Performa White

Performa White bright white paperboard for premium packaging

For high performance in premium packaging or graphical applications, use Performa White folding boxboard.

Performa White by Stora Enso is an aesthetically appealing folding boxboard that combines performance with a beautiful white appearance. A coated GC1 board, it features a three-layer fibre structure with CTMP (chemi-thermomechanical pulp) in the middle layer.

This premium renewable paperboard is ideal for folding cartons for fragrance and cosmetics packaging, personal care products, and chocolates and confectioneries, where its proven taste and odour neutrality is a major benefit. It also performs well in graphical end uses and can stand up to the most demanding finishing effects.

Thanks to its triple-coated top side, Performa White delivers fantastic print results, and the reverse side is also suitable for full-colour printing. Its high brightness and whiteness contribute to an optimal visual experience. Suitable for offset, flexo, rotogravure and digital printing.

Barrier coatings and special effects

Performa White PE and Performa White 2PE are available hard-sided (HS).
