About Alaska Plus

Excellent as always - lighter than ever!

Introducing Alaska Plus lightweight GC2 board with unparalleled benefits

Alaska Plus is our new lightweight GC2 coated paperboard, which responds directly to the growing demand for economically attractive and environmentally sustainable packaging solutions. Alaska Plus uses fewer raw materials and produces less waste, thereby decreasing the environmental impact throughout the product’s life cycle. It also reduces cost through the value chain starting from lower material cost all the way to reduced disposal fees thanks to the lower weight of the packaging.

Alaska Plus combines the benefits of our renowned Alaska board: the same great stiffness, excellent strength and durability – as well as the industry-leading quality consistency that brings reliability for high volume packaging production and fast speed packing lines. Now with a revolutionary light basis weight.
