Kapag: Think the unthinkable thanks to 3D

Founded in Switzerland in 1852, KAPAG is a family-owned business specialising in the production, coating and finishing of multiply paper and paperboard. Our customers can choose from a unique range of laminated paperboards, or alternatively, look to KAPAG for the rapid realisation of their own product ideas.

Regarding the development of a new product, our customers benefit from an almost unlimited selection of base papers and combine them to create a paperboard compound that consists of between two and six layers. Thus, they are able to create a product for luxury packaging or graphical applications that is not only unique but also has the added benefit of being sustainable.

As to our range of laminated paperboards (The KAPAG collection), we can offer nearly 20 qualities and more than 1000 references that can be delivered at short notice.

Among them is FibreForm®, the world’s only 3D cartonboard. The FibreForm® compound is a food approved solid bleached board with high tensile stretch and tearing resistance. These properties allow for unusually deep embossing (greater than three times the board thickness), which until recently was unheard of in the field of cartonboard.

FibreForm® Board and FibreForm® Duo attract attention to packaged branded goods as well as help guard against counterfeit packaging. The two qualities complement the FibreForm® paper range of BillerudKorsnäs.

KAPAG is FSC-certified. More than 90% of the total energy consumption is generated without C02 emissions.
