Superior raw materials
As one of Sweden's largest forest owners, we can ensure access to the very highest quality of pure virgin fiber. Invercote is a triple-layer board that combines a primary core of long fibers (pine and spruce), with an outer layer of shorter fiber (birch). This combination of various fiber mixes in layers allows for superior strength and toughness, without compromising on surface properties.
Excellent tear strength
Pick up a sheet of Invercote and try to rip it. It's a lot more difficult than one might think regardless of what direction you tear. In fact, tests show that Invercote offers superior tearing strength, compared to other brands. Not only is this a prerequisite for good packaging, but it directly affects how it performs in the various stages of converting and filling.
Superb surface strength
Your paperboard needs good surface strength to withstand all the forces applied to it during printing and finishing. All those inks, varnishes and foils need a pure surface that's both strong enough to withstand force and easy to adhere to. This is a vital parameter on which Invercote consistently performs, thanks to the use of more short fibers in the outer layer as well as deep knowledge and continuous development of coating formulations.
High compression strength
When transporting, stacking or storing boxes, you need a paperboard that can handle the forces of compression loading. With Invercote, our usage of a high-density chemical pulp, with more long fibers in the middle layer, contributes directly to high compression strength levels. It may even enable you to reduce the weight of your package while still maintaining performance levels. Don't hesitate to ask our experts for advice on the optimal material to protect your product.
