Creating better and lighter paperboard solutions has been a guiding principle of Metsä Board for decades. What keeps us going is to find the best possible packaging solutions with the least possible environmental impact. In short, Better with Less.

Lightweight boards are resource efficient in many ways: they consume less raw materials, reduce transport weight and produce less waste. They also ensure product safety and protection, as well as enable appealing promotion.

To serve you even better, we now bring our offering to you in a clearer and more unified way, making product selection easier. You will now find all your trusted products, with the same winning properties, under one MetsäBoard family.

Recognising the wide choice of products that we offer, we have created four distinct and memorable categories to help speed up the product selection process. Once you have decided upon a product category you will then be able to quickly find suitable products for your desired application.

 

Natural – these products provide a ‘natural’ look and feel with good printability, lifting up colors and images.

Classic – products included in this category combine reliable performance with excellent value for money, making them ideal for fast moving goods requiring good shelf visibility and safety for food use.

Pro – these products offer high brightness and smoothness,  and are designed for high value products that require outstanding brand promotion through more demanding printing, converting and forming techniques.

Prime – the products in this category are ideal for premium high-end brands, combining excellent brightness and surface smoothness characteristics, to help achieve world-class printing, converting and special effects.

Forest

Our paperboards start their life in sustainably managed forests

Forests are of vital importance to Metsä Board.

Northern forests provide the wood that is the core raw material for paperboard. It’s essential for local communities that grow and harvest the wood to do so in a sustainable way.

We have much to tell you about forest ownership and management, how we can trace the wood back to its source, and the certification systems we follow.  Without forests we would have no paperboard, so it’s in everyone’s best interests to look after them.

Pulp

The types of pulp used in production of our paperboards are chemical and mechanical pulps

We are self-sufficient in pulp supply

Both chemical and mechanical pulps are used in the production of our paperboards.

 

Before wood becomes paperboard, it first has to be turned into pulp.  Pulp may be used immediately, or dried for shipment to the board mill. The properties of the pulps define the quality of the paperboard, in terms of consistency, whiteness and stiffness.

All of the pulp Metsä Board uses is either made in our own mills or produced by Metsä Fibre within Metsä Group. This gives us a high degree of control over the quality and availability of pulp, which in turn greatly benefits our customers. We also have a strong commitment to research and development in pulp production, so our products are continually improved.

Circular economy

The circular economy

Our paperboards contribute to the circular economy

They are recyclable, biodegradable and can be used for bioenergy.

Paperboard is an ideal material for use as part of a circular economy, where raw materials are recovered after their primary use and then used again in the same way or for new purposes. Paperboard is well recognised as a recyclable material, and its fibres form the basis of recycled paper and board.

When fibres can no longer by recycled, they can still make an important contribution to energy production.
