Stora Enso develops new LumiLiner, a one-sided coated paper with weight of 90 gsm; product supports graphics in corrugated board printing with good ink holdout, flatness, smoothness, features adhesion-friendly reverse side

HELSINKI , January 16, 2012 (press release) – Stora Enso, which ranks among the world’s leading paper manufacturers, has developed a new liner in close collaboration with producers of boxes and corrugated packaging. With a basis weight of 90 g/m², this new liner combines the softness of lightweight paper with the bulk and tear resistance of significantly higher weight paper.

LumiLiner is a white, one-side coated paper that is produced at Stora Enso’s Uetersen mill, Germany. It features outstanding flatness, excellent smoothness and good ink holdout. That supports vibrant graphics in corrugated board printing in offset and flexography (post-print). Of course, LumiLiner is equally suitable for pre-printing of corrugated material in both printing methods.

LumiLiner offers high opacity, contains no optical brighteners and is suitable for the production of food packaging.

One of the special features of LumiLiner is its adhesion-friendly reverse side, which permits economical application of adhesive and fast drying to help speed up automated lamination processes. At the same time, this also prevents the adhesive from penetrating the material and thus supports the flatness of the final product.

LumiLiner is available in rolls in the usual widths processed by the corrugated industry as well as in sheets. Free samples can be requested by e-mail to specialitypapers@storaenso.com
