Light weight with consistent quality
Simcote is a fully coated folding boxboard (GC2) available in a basis weight range of 200-340 g/m² and suitable for offset, flexo and digital printing.
Simcote combines a clear yield advantage and efficiency with good sensory and hygienic properties, making it ideal for branded foods and healthcare products. Approved for direct food contact, it has improved moisture resistance and is hard sized in all pulp layers.
Simcote’s consistent quality results in trouble-free printing, converting and packing. Its lightweight construction allows a lower basis weight to be specified without loss of strength and performance.
Simcote is made from fresh fibres, traceably sourced from sustainably managed northern forests. All of Metsä Board’s products are manufactured under the highest environmental and safety standards, and hold PEFC and FSC® chain of custody certification and FSC controlled wood status.
