Stora Enso launches new Performa Alto board for high-quality folding cartons. The board offers excellent print results and a bright surface, making it ideal for cosmetics and luxury packaging. Performa Alto is available in grammages from 200 to 350 gsm.
- Performa Alto has excellent brightness, brightness stability and whiteness. The smoothness of the reverse side also allows attractive print. Its quality clearly puts Performa Alto at the top end of CTMP and folding boxboards in the market. Consequently, we are marketing this board for cosmetics, luxury and other high-end packaging applications. Performa Alto will provide an interesting new material option for our customers -says Öystein Aksnes, Vice President, Marketing & Sales, Stora Enso Carton Board.
Stora Enso`s Performa CTMP product family now comprises Performa Alto, Performa 2S, Performa White, Performa Cream and Performa Natura brands.
Performa CTMP boards combine the benefits of folding boxboard with the mechanical properties and chemical purity of solid bleached sulphate board. The odour- and taint-neutral boards are also suitable for packaging chocolate and pharmaceuticals. CTMP (chemi-thermomechanical pulp) is used in the middle layer of board to achieve superior performance in printing, converting and demanding end uses.
