BillerudKorsnäs launches improved coated liner products

Better printing results and greater strength and stiffness are among the improvements to upgraded coated liner products from BillerudKorsnäs.

BillerudKorsnäs recently upgraded its BillerudKorsnäs Design, Decor and Supreme coated liner products, resulting in better fibre formation, smoother surfaces and a better printing result for the liner, as well as increased strength and stiffness.

Customers that have evaluated the new grades have all reported positive results. These include enhanced whiteness, improved print quality and the possibility to select a lower grammage due to the increased strength and stiffness.

The improvements to the liner products have been made possible by an upgrade of paper machine 4 in Gävle in 2014. The SEK220 million investment in the machine included the installation of a new head box, breast roll shaker, smoothing press and dewatering elements.
