New Max lamination technology increases resistance or corrugated

Packaging Solutions

DS Smith Tecnicarton has launched Max lamination technology. The new solution increases the resistance of corrugated cardboard packaging and optimises stacking potential – extending possibilities for reuse as a fully recyclable solution.

Tecnicarton designers superimposed up to ten layers of corrugated cardboard to create Max technology. This includes standardised special folding creases to achieve a larger box format with increased resistance, and the design has evolved out of a six wave laminated packaging solution comprised of up to ten channels.

DS Smith heavy duty packaging, the Magnus-IBC Kraft, has a capacity of 1000 litres and a resistance of 10,000 kg, and the bulk packages have been designed as a sustainable and 100% recyclable alternative to traditional plastic intermediate bulk containers (IBC).

The company’s production processes and circular economy design metrics approach has resulted in significant improvements to the technology of large laminate packaging casings. These include bespoke ergonomic creases that enable packaging to be assembled easily. They are also foldable and have resulted in significant space saving during supply chain cycles as well as successful reuse cycles, and a reduction in CO2 during transportation. For example, in the automotive sector, Tecnipack cardboard has enabled laminated strips to be reused up to ten times within the supply chain for transportation between Spain and the United States of America (USA).

In addition, the resistance offered by lamination technology has made it possible to replace wooden packaging with lighter, cheaper, and completely recyclable100% cardboard packaging.

DS Smith Tecnicarton has made 100% of its packaging products recyclable or reusable, and the company is committed to fulfilling the objectives of its ‘Now & Next Sustainability Strategy: Redefining Packaging for a Changing World’.

Ignacio Montfort, managing director, DS Smith Iberia, said: ‘We are constantly looking for ways to innovate and find solutions to the environmental challenges of the day. Our company wide 'Now & Next' sustainability strategy and vision is a benchmark for our product innovations and targets. We are confident that these new packaging product innovations will positively impact on the packaging supply chain and environment for future generations, as well as for our present day clients and their customers as we accelerate the transition to a low carbon circular economy.’
