MetsäBoard Prime FBB Bright

MetsäBoard Prime FBB Bright is a fully coated bleached paperboard with coated back, available in a basis weight range of 170-330 g/m² and suitable for offset, gravure, flexo and digital printing.

MetsäBoard Prime FBB Bright produces superb print results on both sides and is perfect for adding special finishing features. Its excellent brightness leaves unprinted areas with a clean appearance. Its lightweight construction allows a lower basis weight to be specified without loss of strength and performance.
