Neenah Paper Introduces 100% Postconsumer Premium Packaging Board
Neenah Paper (Alpharetta, GA) has added a new single-ply board consisting of 100% postconsumer fiber content for folding cartons. Environment Folding Board 100 PC 18 pt (125 lb cover) offers dimensional stability, enabling the product to flow through scoring, folding, and assembly processes efficiently. It can also be printed, embossed, foil stamped, die cut, and glued, suiting it for premium packaging such as folding boxes for the health, cosmetic, and fragrance markets.
