DescriptionKallima® Direct Print is a fully bleached linerboard with a single-coated topside. Kallima® Direct Print’s low bulk-to-weight ratio provides a higher caliper of linerboard for the equivalent basis weight covering flutelines and reducing washboarding. Kallima® Direct Print’s superior smoothness ensures superior printability. Its exceptionally smooth surface reduces dot-gain, permits the use of higher ink densities and eliminates mottling. Finally, Kallima® Direct Print’s higher brightness provides a greater visual impact and more accurate color reproduction.
End UseThe smooth print surface of Kallima® Direct Print is ideally suited for process and line work on presses with limited drying capacity. Kallima® Direct Print is recommended for high-quality direct printing on flexo and is ideal for point-of-purchase displays and high-quality corrugated cartons.
