MONTREAL, June 17, 2019 (Press Release) -Rayonier Advanced Materials paperboard division is pleased to announce the launch of their new Folding Grade Kallima box™.
Customers of Kallima® coated paperboard will continue to benefit from the strength and versatility they've come to expect from Kallima® commercial printing grades, but with a new product option that delivers a foldable, printable, boxable solution for all their packaging, cartons, POP displays and other projects.
As Martin Lavoie, Vice President of Sales and Marketing stated: “Our customers from the commercial print markets have come to appreciate the main benefits of Kallima®: its lower basis weight and its North American footprint. We are now pleased to offer this unique combination of advantages to packaging converters.”
Kallima box™ is the only FBB (folding boxboard) grade manufactured in North America. It is coated one side and is available in 14 pt, 16 pt and 18 pt, with consistent printability and reliability on press. Its low-density, multi-ply board characteristics brings significant savings due to the basis weight advantage over competing SBS products. Available in sheets and rolls, FDA-compliant for dry food contact and FSC-certified® upon request.
The addition of Kallima box™ allows for greater product diversification and expansion into new markets, specifically the packaging segment.
Kallima is a well-established paperboard brand with a wide product offering that ranges from its coated cover collection to digital and litholaminations options. The only 3-ply paperboard manufactured in North America, Kallima® is perfect for creating beautiful, vivid print and top-quality jobs, all while offering savings of up to 20% over competing products. Produced from our mill located in Temiscaming, Quebec, Kallima® is also FSC® Certified meeting rigorous responsible forestry standards, making it an earth friendly choice and helping to keep print a sustainable medium.
