Metsä Board to showcase paperboard and design innovations at FachPack 2018

FachPack 25–27 September – Nuremberg, Germany – Stand number 7A–136

At FachPack in Nuremberg, Metsä Board will present its product portfolio of premium fresh fibre paperboards including folding boxboards, white kraftliners and food service boards along with its award-winning design services.

Metsä Board will feature the latest addition to its product offering, an eco-barrier paperboard called MetsäBoard Pro FSB EB1 developed especially for food service use.  In addition to the sustainability benefits it also offers efficiencies in printing and converting.

At the exhibition Metsä Board will highlight its range of packaging analysis and design services which encompass material and structural evaluation as well as modification of existing packaging. Together with its lightweight paperboards Metsä Board’s packaging analysis and design service enables better, safer and more sustainable packaging solutions. One example of this service is the innovative and award-winning SkinCare 2.0 gift box which uses fibre-based materials to replace plastic.

Under the ‘PackageLab’ concept Metsä Board will provide inspiration and ideas to demonstrate the innovative use of materials and design for cosmetics, food, e-commerce, healthcare and beverage packaging. Visitors will be able to experience how the latest Augmented Reality (AR) technology, contained within the Arilyn-app, helps transform the physical world into a virtual experience.

Visitors can also see first-hand the ground-breaking winning design ‘Stretching Inner Part’ from the recent ‘Better with Less – Design Challenge’, which was organised by Metsä Board. This innovative design introduces an ingenious alternative to plastic bubble wrap. In addition, inspirational designs from the other finalists will also be presented at the show.
