Mohawk Launches Renewal Folding Board with the Highest PCW Content in the Industry

December 9, 2008

COHOES, N.Y., Dec. 9 /PRNewswire/ — Mohawk Fine Papers Inc. continues to demonstrate environmental leadership by providing products that support industry demands for sustainable papers. Mohawk’s newly launched Renewal Folding Board 80% PC White is FSC-certified, and has the highest PCW content available.

Mohawk Renewal’s initial product launch will be 18-point board. Although larger boxes are typically constructed from heavier board, the majority of packaging production uses 18-point board for luxury items such as cosmetics, bath products, jewelry, gift boxes and CD cases, as well as business collateral such as portfolios and pocket folders.

Renewal features a premium uncoated surface that accepts ink beautifully and performs extremely well through the entire finishing and converting processes from offset and UV offset, to letterpress, foil-stamping and embossing. In addition to Renewal’s strong environmental appeal, another differentiating characteristic is its availability in both vellum and smooth finishes. Each offers a premium printing surface with a tactile quality that lends itself to a wide range of production techniques and Renewal’s excellent dimensional stability scores and folds well both with and against the grain.

“We receive inquiries daily from customers looking for a more sustainable packaging alternative, and the media is actively covering the subject of ‘green packaging.’ This is not a trend but rather a need that will continue to grow. As a company with a reputation as a leader in sustainable papers, the time is right for us to introduce Renewal, a folding board that contains the highest PCW content in the industry,” says David Van de Water, Director of Product and Market Development, Mohawk Fine Papers.
