Hall 3.1 Stand B36

Metsä Board, the world’s leading producer of wallpaper base, is showing its comprehensive Cresta range, with grades designed to meet all the needs of the wallcoverings industry and its customers at Heimtextil 2015.

Metsä Board will also be answering questions about sustainability, increasingly important in the supply chain to meet demand for ethical and responsible purchasing practice. It was recently awarded a position in the CDP’s Nordic Climate Disclosure Leadership Index, achieving a score of 98 out of 100 for the transparency, depth and quality of climate change data disclosed to investors and the global marketplace.

“We are committed to the principles of sustainability and take the economic, social and environmental impacts of all our operations into consideration,” adds Olli Haaranoja. “Our main raw material is renewable fresh forest fibres, grown in sustainable northern forests. The Cresta range is made at Metsä Board’s Kyro mill which holds both PEFC and FSC chain-of-custody certification, and uses bioenergy in its production.”

The Cresta range includes bases suitable for all printing and converting processes. It offers products for paste-the-wall, washable and strippable wallcoverings, as well as expanded vinyl, PVC coating and paper wallcoverings. There are also specialist products with resistance to high temperatures in converting or are suitable for inks containing pearlescent pigments.
