Stora Enso hass introduced a new board grade at the Packaging Innovations trade show. 

The CKB Carrier 380 g/m2 grade is a multilayer kraft back board suitable for beverage multipacks and other packaging applications that require durability combined with 'superior' printability and food safety. 

“CKB Carrier boasts incr-eased tear resistance, bending stiffness and highly impressive tensile and burst strength. These features provide protection in the most challenging conditions. The new, highest basis weight of 380 g/m2 is suitable for heavy goods and large package sizes; for food, non-food and carrier packs,” says product manager Essi Lauri from Stora Enso Consumer Board division.

According to the manufacturers, the CKB Carrier is a renewable and recyclable material and offers wet strength.  Its surface roughness contributes to 'good' printability in both rotogravure and offset printing.

Stora Enso produces chemical pulp, paper and board, corrugated packaging, and sawn wood products which are supplied globally.
