USFDA and ISEGA compliance make this product ideal for most direct and indirect food contact applications, as well as for cartons and packages of all types.
Features and Benefits
KlaFold® has a unique three-ply structure that uses less fiber for a given caliper, which can help manufacturers reduce costs by delivering output that generates more cartons per ton. Yield advantage and source reduction make KlaFold a very efficient and cost-effective packaging option.
Surface Uniformity for Printability and Convertibility
Its clay coating provides a consistent, smooth surface with outstanding ink holdout, resulting in excellent printability for packages with strong shelf appeal. Its smoothness and strength offer improved efficiencies in converting machinery and filling equipment as well as strong performance in finishing operations.
Strength and Durability
The unbleached long fiber base layer supplies stiffness and strength for package integrity. As a result, KlaFold is versatile, taking on virtually any design feature and application, including diecutting, folding, apertures, laminating and embossing. Converters can use its lighter basis weight to achieve equal strength, and can use it in demanding applications, such as frozen or chilled food packaging.
KlaFold uses renewable and recyclable virgin fibers. When combined with FSC chain of custody certification, KlaFold becomes a very sustainable alternative.
Excellent for a Wide Range of Food Applications
USFDA and ISEGA approval make KlaFold ideal for most direct and indirect food contact applications.
