The strength to make more from less

Lightweighting means getting more packaging from less raw material. Production is leaner. Less energy is used. It is choosing a lower grammage for your packaging, without jeopardizing packaging performance. 

The big savings

On average a 10% reduction, up to 20%, with savings all along the value chain.

Strength is the key

Material strength, multi-layered structure, primary fibres. Strong, stiff, shapeable.

How can lightweighting affect your brand?

Take on the lightweighting challenge

We have designed a set of nine 7x7 cm boxes – made of nine grammages of our cartonboard BillerudKorsnäs White. Can you arrange them by weight from the lightest to the heaviest? No easy task – even seasoned professionals have been known to fail. Regardless if you make it or not: the lightweighting opportunities will become obvious. Contact us and give it a try.

Cartonboard perfect for lightweighting

We make our cartonboard strong, stiff and shapeable. That is why you can choose a lower grammage and it will still endure manufacturing, converting processes, transportation, handling and the final journey to the shelf – with consumer appeal intact.

Take advantage of our expertise

With the knowledge to make the most of the material, Carton Solutions will help lightweight your packaging. Our experts will optimize structural design, user-friendliness and best material utilization. Prototypes of the new lightweight package are tested to verify packaging performance.
