MetsäBoard Natural FBB 2PE 12/18

MetsäBoard Natural FBB is an uncoated folding boxboard available in a basis weight range of the baseboards 175-325 g/m², suitable for offset and flexo printing. PE coating is applied at the extrusion line on both sides.

PE extrusion coating creates a protective layer on paperboard to protect the packed product. Double coated 2PE is used for frozen food, chilled food, food service packaging and fast-moving consumer goods that require barrier against moisture.

MetsäBoard Natural FBB 2PE is made from fresh fibres, traceably sourced from sustainably managed northern forests. It is recyclable depending upon local recycling services.
