Iggesund Paperboard says that its Incada folding box board will, from the Northern Hemisphere autumn, be whiter and lighter, and incorporate a number of improved properties affecting printability.
Incada Exel, which is targeted more as a packaging board, will have too improved stiffness. For grammages over 300 g/m2, this gain will be as much as 10 to 15 per cent. “This enables our customers to reduce their packaging weights while keeping the same protection for the contents,” said Robin Lewis, technical product manager for Incada.
‘Other substantial improvements have been made to the odour and taste properties so that Incada now comes in under the Robinson test’s detection limit of 0.6,’ an Iggesund press note said. ‘The whiteness is increased by 7.5 units to 120 on the CIE scale. Improvements are found in the L value which is critical for colour reproduction. Runnability is also improved, so Incada will now be able to function even better in customers’ processes.’
“Incada was introduced in 2001 and since then we’ve made many small changes to improve its quality,” Lewis says. “This is a big leap forward and it will definitely strengthen our market position.”
