Technologies to code on paperboard cartons


Fast drying and smear-resistant inks for printing on paperboard.



The choice of printing on paperboard technologies and inks must, be carefully considered in order to match the paperboard’s characteristics. Indeed, paperboard types include boxboard and containerboard, as well as a wood-free pulp product, all with various thicknesses. The coating may be glossy or matte, colored or pure white, and size and surface texture can vary greatly. The excellent quality print surface, structural stability, and inherent sustainability and recycling potential offered by paperboard help explain its popularity. Due to so many different types, the choice has to be guided by an expert in
coding on cables and wire printing solution.



Printing on paperboard is an ideal way to convey information and build your brand.

Depending on the speed of your production line, the size, and the format of your packaging, we provide specialized inks that meet drying speed and smear-resistance requirements.
