Ecological and efficient packaging 
MetsäBoard Pro FSB EB1

MetsäBoard Pro FSB EB1

MetsäBoard Pro FSB EB1 is a food service board with a special barrier treatment providing moderate grease resistance. It is available in a basis weight range of 195–320 g/m², suitable for offset and flexo printing.

The lightweight paperboard is an ecological and efficient packaging material for food, take-away and food on-the-go applications. It can be used e.g. for biscuits, bakery, popcorn, hamburgers, chips or nuggets as well as for pre-packed sandwiches or filled baguettes. The grease resistance of the board can be enhanced further at the converter by adding just one varnishing layer: sustainability and cost-efficiency go hand in hand.

MetsäBoard Pro FSB EB1 is safe for direct food contact and no optical brighteners (OBA free) or fluorochemicals have been used. The non-plastic barrier is made of bio-based components and natural minerals, and the product can be recycled with paper and board recycling systems.

The product is biodegradable and industrially compostable according to the EN 13432 and ASTM D6400.*
