Folding Boxboard

fbb

(FBB/GC/UC)

A paperboard made from layers of mechanical pulp sandwiched between layers of chemical pulp with up to three layers of coating on the top or printing surface and one layer of coating on the reverse. The chemical pulp is obtained through cooking chips of wood with chemicals, while the mechanical pulp is obtained through milling and refining the wood. The upper layer of a folding boxboard is bleached and coated, while the reverse side can be bleached and sometimes coated (GC1) or unbleached (CG2).

 

This paperboard is characterized by air between the fibers that gives it a high thickness and makes it light for what concerns grammage without changing its stiffness and strength. It is used in such markets as drinks, pharmaceuticals, frozen, chilled and other foods, confectionery and a wide range of other markets.
