 MetsäBoard Classic FBB

Light weight with consistent quality

MetsäBoard - Fully coated folding boxboard

MetsäBoard Classic FBB is a fully coated folding boxboard (GC2) available in a basis weight range of 200-340 g/m² and suitable for offset, flexo and digital printing.

MetsäBoard Classic FBB combines clear yield advantage and efficiency with good sensory and hygienic properties, making it ideal for branded fast-moving products such as food and healthcare. Approved for direct food contact, it has improved moisture resistance and all pulp layers are hard-sized.

Unbeatable lightness

MetsäBoard Classic FBB’s consistent quality results in trouble-free printing, converting and packing. Its lightweight construction allows a lower basis weight to be specified without loss of strength and performance.

MetsäBoard Classic FBB is made from fresh fibres, traceably sourced from sustainably managed northern forests. All of Metsä Board’s products are manufactured under the highest environmental and safety standards, and hold PEFCTM and FSC® chain of custody certification.
