Folding Boxboard: When Will North America Get on Board?, Paper360º November/December 2019
Today, more than 75 percent of bleached virgin cartonboard manufactured in Europe and Asia is folding boxboard (FBB). With broad use in liquid packaging, food service, and folding applications, FBB is the preferred substrate versus solid bleached sulfate (SBS) in most regions around the globe. Yet, in North America, FBB production is nearly non-existent. Used in limited amounts, the North American FBB demand is fulfilled mostly by imports.
With the rest of the world showing a clear preference for FBB over SBS, why has North America not adopted it as the “go-to” for cartonboard? More importantly, will this change?
