Carta Dedica Fresh

Purity and safety to go

Carta Dedica Fresh is an uncoated food service board, available in a basis weight range of 185-355 g/m², suitable for offset and flexo printing.

Carta Dedica Fresh comes without a coating when a more natural look is preferred. It has reliable performance on the press and good formability into hot and cold paper cups. Carta Dedica Fresh can be used as it comes, or with an extrusion or dispersion coating for additional barrier properties. It is hard-sized to prevent edge penetration by moisture.

Carta Dedica Fresh uses raw materials that are traceable, safe and approved for food contact. It is made from fresh fibres, 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.

Carta Dedica Fresh board is recommended for:

  • paper cups for hot and cold drinks
