MetsäBoard Pro FSB

MetsäBoard Pro FSB is a coated food service board, available in a basis weight range of 195-345 g/m², suitable for offset and flexo printing.

MetsäBoard Pro FSB has excellent printability thanks to its clay coating, ensuring that colours and designs are reproduced accurately. It gives reliable performance on the press and offers good formability into paper plates and folded trays or cartons. MetsäBoard Pro FSB can be used as it comes, or with an extrusion or dispersion coating for additional barrier properties. It is hard-sized to prevent edge penetration by moisture.

Combined safety and sustainability
Lightweight and sturdy, MetsäBoard Pro FSB provides more yield per tonne, making it a cost-effective option with a lower environmental impact. It uses raw materials that are traceable, safe and approved for food contact. MetsäBoard Pro FSB is also suitable for packaging applications that require OBA-free board.

MetsäBoard Pro FSB is made from fresh fibres, 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.
