Rayonier Advanced Materials’ Paperboard Division (Temiscaming, Quebec) has launched its new Folding Grade – Kallima box™ folding boxboard. “Customers 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 and boxable solution for packaging, cartons, POP displays and other applications,” the company said. Martin Lavoie, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, added: “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 3-ply FBB (Folding Boxboard) grade manufactured in North America. It’s coated on one side and is available in 14 pt., 16 pt. and 18 pt. with consistent printability and on-press reliability. Its low-density, high-yield pulp content and multi-ply construction results in significant savings due to its basis weight advantage over competing products, the company added. The new product is available in sheets and rolls, FDA-compliant for dry-food contact, and can be FSC-certified® upon request. “The addition of Kallima box™ allows for greater product diversification and expansion into new markets, specifically the packaging segment,” said Kallima®.
