Metsä Board: A new eco-barrier paperboard

On the occasion of the latest edition of the PCD Paris tradeshow, Metsä Board, a leading European producer of premium fresh fibre paperboards, has launched a new eco-barrier paperboard.

This new, innovative paperboard with a special barrier treatment is bio-based, recyclable and biodegradable, and developed especially for food service use. Its use the beauty and personal sector is still to be invented!

There is a clear market need to develop paperboards with bio-based barriers as alternatives to fossil-based barriers. The new eco-barrier paperboard, MetsäBoard Pro FSB EB1, is a unique product with a bio-based and biodegradable special barrier treatment that is fluorochemicals-free. The new eco-barrier paperboard can be used with foods requiring grease resistance up to KIT level 5, and the barrier properties can be further improved by adding varnishing layers at the converter. This latter option offers a notable increase in efficiency as the barrier property improvement can be made by applying only one varnishing layer in comparison to paperboards without this special barrier treatment,” explains Metsä Board in a release.

On top of the sustainability benefits of this new product it also offers efficiencies in printing and converting.

MetsäBoard Pro FSB EB1 is a lightweight paperboard and is available in basis weights of 195–290 g/m2 with all layers hard-sized. It enables high-quality printing on both sides and is suitable for offset and flexo printing. The consistent quality of the new paperboard gives excellent convertibility. It is glueable with standard dispersion and hotmelt adhesives.
