Customers can source a unique range of laminated paperboard from KAPAG Karton + Papier AG, or alternatively, look to the paperboard laminator for the rapid realisation of their own product ideas.
“When it comes to the development of a new product, our customers benefit from an almost unlimited selection of base papers”, says Mr. Alexander Meyer, managing owner of KAPAG. According to the customer’s requirement, the papers are combined to create a paperboard compound that consists of between two and six layers. “Thus, our customers are able to create a product for luxury packaging, graphical applications and for uses in logistics and industry that is not only unique but also has the added benefit of being sustainable”, continues Mr. Meyer.
Some of the products the company presents at FachPack 2018 (Hall 9, Stand 262) are:
EcoBoard White Coated Duo is the latest product offering that came to life thanks to the flexibility of raw paper ingredients that lamination makes possible. The quality has been specifically designed for spirits such as whisky, gin, vodka, champagne as well as for fine wines. Its bright white surface ensures superior printability and finishing options. EcoBoard White Coated Duo can be produced double coated on both sides or with either an uncoated white surface or a silver front side. It contains a minimum waste paper content of 50%, an important feature for spirit associations such as the Scottish Whisky Association, as it enables them to comply with their environmental targets.
FibreForm® Board and FibreForm® Duo represent yet another new product from KAPAG Karton + Papier AG. This food approved solid bleached board has got high tensile stretch and tearing resistance. These properties allow for unusually deep embossing (greater than three times the board thickness), which until recently was unheard of in the field of cartonboard. The unusually deep embossing not only attracts attention to packaged branded goods but also helps to guard against counterfeit packaging. FibreForm® Board complements the FibreForm® paper range from BillerudKorsnäs.
Algro Duo is KAGAG’s established solid bleached board grade. Customers are assured of a perpetual radiant white and uniform surface regardless of whether they use this food approved quality in 450gsm or 1660gsm. These homogeneous properties allow products to be converted with a consistent look and feel for a virtually unlimited range of applications. Algro Duo complements the Algro Design® range from Sappi.
The popularity of EcoLine reflects the international trend for sustainable products that are now used increasingly in premium packaging for luxury goods. This graphical recycling paper is made from
100 % recycled fibres and can be transformed into unique cards, designer wrapping paper, envelopes or premium packaging. EcoLine, and its laminated version, EcoLine Duo, are available in either brown or grey from 90gsm to 440gsm.
Alpha BlackCore is dyed a solid deep black throughout and is the preferred option for applications where stylish design counts. The entire Alpha BlackCore range is acid free, buffered and wood free and therefore perfectly suited for picture framing (e.g. passe-partouts) or for use in museums and archives. Alpha BlackCore can also be embossed or produced with flock for applications in luxury packaging. Combinations with coloured outer or middle layers as well as self-adhesive film are equally possible. The thickness ranges from between 0.5mm and 2.0mm.
