Paper and packaging products manufacturer and distributor Mondi has introduced the YBBS brand uncoated wood-free board for packaging applications.

YBBS white board is an uncoated virgin fibre wood-free board that is suitable for making folding boxes and shopping bags. It features a CIE whiteness of up to 170 haptics, and a strong environmental profile, according to the company.

The board has been designed to prevent food from liquid penetration, and also fits for purpose with high-performance runability and converting speed.

Manufactured in Austria, the new portfolio is available in four grades including high white, ivory, coloured board and cupstock. All grades are ISEGA-certified to comply with the Bundesinstitut für Risikobewertung (BfR) XXXVI regulation on direct food contact safety.

Additionally, Mondi's YBBS board features a unified colour and print reproduction with two-sided printing.

Mondi uncoated fine paper marketing and sales director Johannes Klumpp said the YBBS premium cupstock board features the attainable level of purity of uncoated cupstock board.

"This really sets us apart from the competition in Europe, as evident in the whiteness of the cups and portion packs," added Klumpp.
