Holmen PACK, developed as concept paper TYPE3, is a great alternative to the traditional MG papers, machine-glazed papers, that only have one side with a glossy surface. The double-calendered Holmen PACK combines the properties from a wood-containing paper with the necessary elements of strength from a kraft paper. Order samples here!
With its great printing properties, this paper is ideally suited for all types of flexible packaging solutions. Some areas of use are branded consumer bags, bags for dry foods, bread, fruits and vegetables, or bags and wrapping for other goods.
Our genuine sustainability – in all from raw material and production, all the way to a recycling long life-span – makes the paper a natural and smart choice for all industrial applications. Its smoothness makes it equally good as a base paper, for interleaving, and for paper-bagging as an environmental-friendly substitute for polybagging.
An alternative to MG-papers
This packaging paper meets a market surge, since the switch from plastics-based packaging has a high impact on industrial and consumer demand. Holmen PACK is a paper with a smooth surface on both sides thanks to double-calendering in the production process. It's made from fresh-fibre-based pulp, and thereby 100% traceable, repulpable and recyclable. It combines the strength of a kraft paper with the bulky properties and the light weight of a wood-containing paper. The paper is thin but still strong and thick enough, with a smooth and even surface useful in many applications.
Approved for food contact
Holmen PACK is certified for direct food contact according to both BfR and FDA. Sustainably produced, this paper is ready to enter the fight against plastics. It is tested and proven, meeting the demands for consumer bags in retail industries, supermarket fruit and vegetables, and fast-food collective packaging.
Converting Holmen PACK
Magazine paper wrapping
Magazine paper wrapping with Holmen PACK substitutes plastics.
FDA stands for the United States’ Food and Drug Administration. The FDA approval confirms that the paper is allowed to be exported to the US for food contact, to be sold directly but also for further processing and refinement. To get the approvals, the surface of the material has to be free of any toxic contaminants and the material should not potentially become a source of toxic contamination.
BfR food contact approval
BfR stands for Bundesinstitut für Risikobewertung, which is the German federal institute for risk assessment. Being approved by BfR confirms adherence to the Framework regulation (EC) No. 1935/2004, which applies to all food contact materials within the European Union.
