API’s OneBoard upgraded with new whiter finish and FSC certification

API’s popular OneBoard™ has been further enhanced to provide customers with a whiter finish and full Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Certification – both of which help it meet the demand for environmentally sensitive and impactful packaging provided in quick lead-times.

The new OneBoard™ enables API to react quickly to customers’ laminated board demands, with its fast-track processing typically delivering finished laminated product on the environmentally approved board base within days of the order.

OneBoard™ is available from stock at API in four 4 weights between 275 and 350 gsm and two optimised widths of 734 and 1054mm. It can be laminated with the full range of API films and foils, and sheeted to a bespoke finished sheet size to achieve the perfect finish for the customer.

Particularly suitable for applications in Cosmetics, Pharmaceuticals, Confectionary and Multimedia, OneBoard™ is ideal for high quality packaging applications that require high bulk, smooth surface and a white reverse in combination with superior film bond strength.

The new certification from the FSC – the international, non-governmental organisation dedicated to promoting responsible management of the world’s forests – is widely recognised by customers as the hallmark of responsible forest management. This ensures that OneBoard™ not only meets all production and supply requirements, but also provides the environmental credentials demanded by its many customers.

Richard Burhouse, Commercial Director at API, commented, “OneBoard™ has remained hugely popular with customers who are looking for a high-end laminated board finish with quick turnarounds. By working with our suppliers, we are now able to ensure that our complete range of stock widths and weights meets our customers’ environmental demands with its FSC certification, and also provides an improved whiteness for an even greater finish.”
