Reel Joins

Reel join markings as used by Iggesund Paperboard are identified according to the following notation:

Iggesunds Bruk, Strömsbruk and Sheeting Stations

Reel joins are marked by two arrow heads, above and below each join.

Standard joins are made with a yellow non-printable slicing tape. The tape width is 50 mm and the thickness typically 0.19 mm. The adhesive is pressure sensitive giving a high cohesive strength. Joins are butt joins with no overlap and are made with a single CD strip of tape on both sides of the board. MD strips are added on the print side. Other types of tapes available on request, please contact your Iggesund Paperboard representative.

Transport packaging

Transport packaging is used to maintain the quality of the delivered paperboard and to protect it during handling, transport and storage.

Reels have cores made from recycled paper and core plugs from particle wood. The reels are either packed with end protecting corrugated kraft board coated with a water barrier (polyethylene 15 g/m²) and stretch wrap or only stretch wrapped. The stretch film is low-density polyethylene. The labels are made of bleached kraft paper, occasionally plastic labels are used.

Pallet packs consist of pallets of 100% wood covered with a protective polyethylene sheet. The paperboard pile is protected on top by a sheet of polyethylene. The whole pallet is then shrink-wrapped with medium-density polyethylene. Labels are made of bleached kraft paper.

Ream packs are made from bleached kraft paper coated with a water barrier (polyethylene 10 g/m²). Labels are made of bleached kraft paper.

The materials used for the transport packaging meet the requirements in the EU Directive EC 94/62. For more detailed information please contact your Iggesund Paperboard representative.
