Simply strong – Excellent Top™ Kraft
20.03.2017 - Virgin Fibre Cartonboard, Innovations / Investments
Excellent Top™ Kraft is one of the impressive results of the successful conversion of the Slovenian mill Kolicevo: thanks to its consistent reverse side, the new virgin fibre Kraft quality with outstanding surface offers a natural appearance. As a result of its high stiffness and caliper, it makes for a strong brand appearance and excellent product protection.
Best surface properties
Of all comparable Kraft qualities, Excellent Top™ Kraft has some of the best surface properties: With excellent opacity, a high brightness (88 % Elrepho), brilliant gloss (> 50), as well as a very smooth surface (0.8 pps), Excellent Top™ Kraft impressively communicates the quality of the packed product. These properties, combined with an attractive Kraft reverse side, make the new virgin fibre Kraft quality the right choice for particularly high optical and haptic requirements, as it creates a unique visual brand identity. The cover of this newsletter was printed on Excellent Top™ Kraft to bring its properties to life for you.
High stability and highest sensory requirements
With Excellent Top™ Kraft, the name says it all: the quality convices with its particularly high stiffness and stability values, which provide outstanding packaging stability. For very demanding applications, such as superior
whisky or champagne packaging, the new cartonboard offers excellent product protection. It maintains its high stability even in high-humidity environments and in chilled or frozen conditions: Thanks to its very good Cobb values (top side < 30 gsm / 60 s; reverse side < 30 gsm / 60 s), the appearance of Excellent Top™ Kraft remains stable through all stages of the cooling chain, making it an ideal choice for chilled or frozen foods.
Excellent Top™ Kraft also meets the highest sensory requirements. In many fields of application, odour and taste neutrality are an essential quality of the packaging cartonboard. With a Robinson value of ≤ 1.0, Excellent Top™ Kraft is ideal for the food sector, especially for confectionary and chocolate.
We look forward to your inquiry!
