MetsäBoard Pro FBB Bright is a fully coated bleached paperboard with white back, available in a basis weight range of 185-350 g/m² and suitable for offset, gravure, flexo and digital printing as well as for litholamination.

MetsäBoard Pro FBB Bright can be used as it comes, or with an extrusion or dispersion coating for additional barrier properties.
