Committed to bringing innovative and sustainable solutions to the market, Klabin, Brazil’s largest producer and exporter of packaging paper and paper packaging, has developed a new version of its paperboard Klamulti, designed for beverage packaging (multipack), which now has microfibrillated pulp (MFC) in its composition. This innovation, led by the Product Development and Technology Center teams at Klabin, was produced at the MFC plant located in Telêmaco Borba, Paraná.
Experiments proved that the addition of MFC in the paperboard composition significantly improves the product’s properties and performance while also reducing grammage. As such, the new solution is capable of creating lighter and more resistant packaging, enhancing the efficiency of the material. The MFC production process develops the microfibrillation of the walls of pulp fibers, enabling a wider connection area between them, thereby increasing the paper’s mechanical strength.
“Klabin’s paperboard lines use different fiber compositions to ensure the best balance between stiffness, structure, resistance and printing quality. Each version of the portfolio was carefully developed to produce the best results in our clients’ processes. Enhancing these features by optimizing resources is one of the Company’s differentials,” said Flavio Deganutti, executive officer – Paper Business at Klabin.
One of Klabin’s proposals is to make the most of forest resources in order to diversify the use of wood components, which will strengthen the Company’s portfolio and create opportunities to operate in new markets for renewable and sustainable products.
“Klabin aspires to be the benchmark in responsible solutions that meet the constant transformations in society, and innovation is an important driver of our business evolution. Offering innovative packaging solutions consolidates the role of paper as the leader in this segment and underlines our vocation for creating a more sustainable future,” said Francisco Razzolini, director of Industrial Technology, Innovation, Sustainability and Projects at Klabin.
