The perfect workhorse for packaging pharmaceuticals and food

TambriteTM by Stora Enso is the natural choice for packaging everyday necessities. A renewable and recyclable material that’s made with wood and pulp fibers from sustainably managed forests, Tambrite is well-known for its efficiency in converting and filling lines.

Discover the new stronger, yet lighter Tambrite

A robust folding boxboard that delivers run-to-run consistency, Tambrite™ by Stora Enso has been the go-to packaging material of food and pharmaceutical companies for decades. Available as hard-sized (HS) as well as barrier-coated on demand, Tambrite can be made to withstand humid and frozen conditions and to reduce plastics when packaging frozen and chilled foods.

Tambrite is a fully coated folding boxboard with a cream reverse side (GC2). Boasting a high stiffness and excellent material efficiency, it’s a board that can safeguard your product and create a great visual impression while also reducing costs throughout the packaging chain. Tambrite’s ideal stiffness-to-weight ratio means that contents are well protected even when each package is lighter in weight.

Tambrite fulfills the relevant legal standards for food and pharmaceutical packaging while meeting flexibility demands in production. Tambrite performs well in printing, converting and filling lines. It’s suitable for digital printing, laser and inkjet coding, as well as Braille embossing and other special finishing effects.

The new Tambrite™ by Stora Enso - stronger, yet lighter than ever

Celebrating 40 years, the new Tambrite™ has shed some weight while becoming stronger than ever, thanks to its ideal stiffness-to-weight ratio. The lower weight means that you can get more packages out of the same amount of raw material. Just as before, it offers excellent printability and complies with food and pharmaceutical industry standards.

Tambrite is a popular all-around choice for renewable folding cartons, thanks to its great value, runnability and performance.

It is a fully coated folding boxboard with a cream reverse side (GC2). The board consists of three fibre layers, with chemical pulp layers on both sides and pressure groundwood pulp in the middle layer.

Tambrite is also available hard sized (HS).

Tambrite Aqua+TM  by Stora Enso

A more robust and reliable way to protect your product. 

Tambrite Aqua+TM  is a folding box board solution that brings additional sustainability credentials by minimizing the use of fossil-based materials and improving recyclability. 

With Stora Enso’s Aqua dispersion technology, the water-based solution integrates with the paperboard surface, safely creating the needed protection while facilitating easier recycling of the packaging. During the repulping process, the coating easily disintegrates, therefore preserving more fiber and maximizing the amount recovered.

Tambrite Aqua+TM comes with the PAP21 logo that shows it is easily recyclable with normal paper and board waste streams.
