Board & fiber-based packaging
Enhanced functionality for board & fibre packaging
Brand owners and retailers place a high premium on the packaging that can effectively communicate the brand image and positioning of their products to the end consumer. For packaging and board producers and converters, this translates into carefully developed packaging grades that meet demanding specifications required during the printing and converting process.
We use state-of-the-art selective mining and production practices to develop products that bring specific functionality and performance to our end customers.
With a unique and comprehensive portfolio of hyper-platy kaolins, engineered kaolins and calcium carbonates along with transformational speciality products like EcoBright™ and formulations services, our global customer base can benefit from advanced multi-pigment solutions.
