Tako HiD L (internal)

Optimal performance for cigarette packaging

Tako HiD L, fully coated paperboard

Tako HiD L is a fully coated paperboard, available in basis weights of 235 and 250 g/m2, and suitable for gravure and offset printing.

Tako HiD L is a highly rigid and robust cigarette packaging grade designed for super premium cigarette brands. Thanks to tis bright topside coating excellent printing results can be achieved, and its high stiffness ensures faultless runnability at high conversion and packing speeds. The lightweight construction of Tako HiD L allows lower basis weights than those of comparable competing grades to be used, without compromising strength and performance.

Tako HiD L is made from fresh forest fibres, traceably sourced in 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.

Tako HiD L is recommended for cigarette packaging:

  • cigarette flip-tops
  • inner frames
  • outers
  • round corner, bevel edge and other novel cigarette package designs
