Liner from MMK: High Quality, Strong Growth

MMK liner brochures

Dynamic growth figures for high-quality liners document non-stop interest in the qualities of Mayr-Melnhof Karton’s offset-liner MM Liner™ and MM Topliner™, as well as Flexoliner MM X-Liner™ and MM X-Liner aqua-fit™.

Our white-coated liner particularly impresses with its printability and smoothness in combination with the best gloss and perfect laminating properties. Mayr-Melnhof Karton liner gives packaged or displayed products an outstanding brand appearance at the point of sale. The latest innovation, MM X-Liner aqua-fit, has the added benefit of excellent moisture protection. This flexoliner is prepared with a moisture barrier on the top and reverse layer (cobb value 100gsm, 1,800s), which greatly limits water absorption. MM X-Liner aqua-fit is ideal for use in corrugated packaging that comes into contact with moisture through the supply chain, for example vegetable and fruit trays.

A box compression test (BCT) according to DIN 55 440-1 was carried out to determine compression resistance. The BCT value is therefore a measure of the stability of packaging. A box produced with MM X-Liner aqua-fit and a packaging manufactured with a coated kraftliner were compared. The result speaks volumes for the quality of Mayr-Melnhof Karton: in a moist and cool environment, which is generally the case for the storage of fruit and vegetables, the MM X-Liner aqua-fit box far surpassed the kraftliner packaging.

Outstanding quality also requires outstanding presentation. In addition to informative brochures for liner qualities and for MM X-Liner aqua-fit, the new liner sample box also contains printed and unprinted samples, as well as samples laminated on different flutes. The high quality of our liner product portfolio is presented to demonstrate application and simplifies selection of the ideal cartonboard in
daily business.
