Press release from the issuing company

Kent-based speciality paper and cartonboard supplier, Chapelton, has underlined the high environmental qualities of its TwinCoat GT1 recycled board product, which it distributes into the UK and Irish and packaging sector on behalf of Smurfit Kappa. 

TwinCoat GT1 is a genuine 2 side fully coated White Lined Chipboard, with excellent print capabilities on both the top and reverse side. TwinCoat, is produced from 100% recycled fibres. Additionally, TwinCoat GT1 is also available as either Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) or Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) certified, due to the sourcing of the material used in its production originating from sustainably managed sources.

With a fully coated white top side, TwinCoat consists of a grey inner layer, together with a fully coated white reverse layer, providing excellent printability on both top and reverse sides. Due to its unique construction and high printability qualities, TwinCoat can be seen as an ideal alternative for other qualities that are now no longer available in the UK.

Produced from renewable raw materials, TwinCoat GT1 is also a viable alternative to virgin board products, and can be used for all types of packaging applications, including consumer and industrial packaging, and also as a food and drink packaging material.

Commenting on the qualities of TwinCoat GT1 and its suitability for the UK and Irish folding carton packaging sector, Chapelton Business Development Director, Neil Skelton, stated, “TwinCoat is a unique material with identical top and reverse sides made from 100% recycled fibres. It is suitable for various end uses from display products, graphical end uses through to multiple packaging applications. The quality and service levels from Smurfit Kappa are excellent and we expect to be able to make great strides in the UK and Ireland with this material.”

TwinCoat GT1 is produced in weights ranging from 300gsm up to and including 550gsm.
