Our extensive range of paperboards includes cartonboards for packaging and graphics, linerboards, and wallpaper bases. What sets our paperboards apart is their lightness combined with strength, which gives yield advantages. Each grade is designed with a specific end-use in mind.

All our boards are made from fresh fibres, which can be traced back to their source in sustainably managed northern forests. Fresh fibres are pure by nature and make safe boards ideal for food and confectionery as well as for sensitive health and beauty products.
