New Billerud Flute® – a fluting to count on

Lightweighting potential

Stronger qualities perform better and allow you to use a lighter fluting for the purpose.

Strong protection

The world’s strongest fluting offers better protection with less material.

Innovation opportunities

A sustainable substitute for conventional plastic containers and wooden boxes.

New Billerud Flute®, the world's strongest semi-chemical fluting, is made of 100% primary fibre from northern birch. Proven in tests like short span compression tests (SCT) and corrugated crush test (CCT), its superior strength leads to improved box performance, making it the perfect material for packaging fresh fruit and vegetables, and fragile heavy goods.

Lightweighting opportunities

Stronger than ever before, New Billerud Flute has improved strength properties to give you ample opportunity to lightweight existing packaging solutions. You can go down one step in grammage and reduce material consumption without compromising on performance.

A centre liner for strength and simplicity

New Billerud Flute offers several new benefits. You can streamline in stock by also using Billerud Flute as centre liner in double or triple wall constructions. Thanks to Billerud Flute’s much higher compression strength compared to traditional Kraftliner, you can go down in grammage by up to 30% in the centre liner layer.

Replacing wood and plywood

New Billerud Flute in high grammages has the strength to create a corrugated solution that can replace conventional wood packaging. A corrugated solution is lighter and reduces costs for freight, logistics and handling. The surface lends itself well to printing attractive images and the company brand. Billerud Flute in 220 g/m2 is the world’s strongest fluting and challenges conventional packaging for heavy-duty goods.
