MetsäBoard Prime FBB

MetsäBoard Prime FBB is a fully coated bleached paperboard with coated back, available in a basis weight range of 205-380g/m² and suitable for offset, gravure, flexo and digital printing. 

MetsäBoard Prime FBB provides premium print quality with superior visual smoothness. The blade coating on the reverse adds to its versatility for smart, brand packaging applications. MetsäBoard Prime FBB has high brightness and a blue-white shade on both sides, adding to its suitability for fragrances and beautycare products.

Resilience and beauty combined

MetsäBoard Prime FBB has excellent stiffness, making strong cartons that keep their shape in transit and on the shelf. Its lightweight construction allows a lower basis weight to be specified without loss of strength and performance. 

MetsäBoard Prime FBB is made from fresh fibres, traceably sourced in 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.
