Carta Dedica Fresh -  uncoated food service board

Carta Dedica Fast is an uncoated food service board, available in a basis weight range of 175-325 g/m², suitable for offset and flexo printing.

Carta Dedica Fast comes without a coating when a more natural look is preferred. Carta Dedica Fast 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.

Combined safety and sustainability

Lightweight and sturdy, Carta Dedica Fast provides more yield per tonne, making it a cost-effective option with a lower environmental impact. It uses raw materials that are traceable, safe and approved for food contact. Carta Dedica Fast is also suitable for packaging applications that require OBA-free board.

Carta Dedica Fast 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 Fast is recommended for:

  • take-away food
