One tonne – knowledge included
Holmen Iggesund manufactures a range of paperboard products at Iggesund in Sweden and Workington in England together with plastic extrusions and laminations for paperboard at Strömsbruk in Sweden. These facilities have been paperboard production units for the better part of a century thus advancing the craft, skill and tradition of paperboard manufacture.
To achieve the best results in the printing process or in packaging manufacture, you need not only a high-quality base material but also knowledge about how to use that material in the best possible way.
Designers, packaging developers and printers all contribute their own specific knowledge and experience to help optimise the product’s properties and functions throughout its lifespan. For this reason, hands-on knowledge about the special properties of paperboard is also required.
For a number of decades, Holmen Iggesund has systematically compiled and made available to its customers an extensive body of knowledge material – the Iggesund Anchor – in order to help increase the user’s ability to make the best use of Invercote and Incada at all stages.
The information includes an overview of various kinds of paperboard and advice about how the paperboard material should be handled before it is used. We hope that these recommendations and advice will make it easier to use Invercote and Incada.
