The new Catcher Board MB12 has been designed to create a blocking mechanism across the whole surface area of the packaging. It will be introduced in two versions, white lined chipboard and solid board.

The new product is made from natural ingredients and complies with the company’s sustainability standards. It responds to prospective legislation in Germany that aims to control the secretion of mineral oil hydrocarbons into food items. It is also helpful in meeting the requirements of upcoming EU regulations on food contact materials.

A Smurfit Kappa spokesperson said that the new product not only blocks mineral oil secretion across the whole surface area of the packaging, but also reacts like normal board during the manufacturing process.

"This means that our customers won’t have to change any of their packaging processes. We believe that by introducing the Catcher Board MB12 we are pre-empting our customers’ needs," added the spokesperson.

With a network of 350 manufacturing sites in 32 countries, Smurfit Kappa offers products including corrugated paper, containerboard, packaging machinery, solid board sheets, sack kraft papers, and others.
