Pankaboard’s new cartonboard

Luxury packaging

The new folding boxboard Pankalux

Following recent investments in its mill in Finland, and as a result of extensive product development, Pankaboard has introduced a new folding boxboard, Pankalux, to its product
portfolio. Pankalux is a new GC1 folding boxboard that has been engineered keeping in mind the growing demands of the luxury packaging market and the luxury beverage sector in particular. The result of the development is better printing quality, an improved surface for lamination, and improved runnability on high-speed packaging lines.

The new folding boxboard is available in the substance range of 285 to 560 gsm. The product was officially introduced to the market at the FachPack exhibition in Germany, where Pankaboard was present.

Pankaboard is a global leading producer of special cartonboards with a capacity of 110,000 tons annually. Their product portfolio consists of high thickness FBB as well as various uncoated speciality boards. These products can be used in a wide range of applications, including luxury beverage and food packaging, picture framing, capseals and visual communication.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
