Incada Silk is a folding box board (FBB) designed for quality packaging and graphical applications which require outstanding visual impact. It is a fully coated white back folding box board finished to a matt level which gives excellent results in both solid print and half tone illustrations and it easily develops a high print and varnish gloss. The reverse side is single coated and finished to a matt level which gives an aesthetically pleasing appearance and provides improvements compared to an uncoated surface regarding smoothness and uniformity in ink absorption.
Incada Silk is a primary fibre paperboard comprising bleached chemical pulp outer plies, mechanical pulp middle plies and carefully chosen coating ingredients which together meet the requirements for high performance in quality printing and varnishing.
The fully coated finish gives a very smooth surface and meets the requirements for both demanding half tone gravure and offset litho processes, where smoothness and uniform ink absorption are of prime importance.
The ink setting and drying properties also ensure good runnability in high speed offset litho processes. Incada Silk works well in most digital printing presses on the market today and is suitable for digital finishing technology.
