Brilliant results on an extensive range of high substance papers.

Lecta extends its portfolio of Metalvac products with the new Metalvac G paper, an extensive range of high substance papers (from 105 g/m2 to 170g/m2), especially designed for high-end graphic applications and premium packaging.

Metallized papers are the perfect choice for these end uses where sophistication and exclusivity are the goal, thanks to their glossy metallic appearance, their optimum brightness and their being 100% recyclable mono-material. The new Metalvac G range offers the possibility of creating exclusive packaging, especially for premium look envelopes and gift bags with Metalvac G 105 g/m2, and for board lamination for rigid boxes and prestige packaging with Metalvac G 115 - 170 g/m2.

Metalvac G also guarantees the best results in offset, UV offset, flexography and silkscreen printing, and is suitable for hot-melt and water-based glues.

The new Metalvac G paper is featured in the latest sample collection Graphic Applications & Packaging under the slogan "LET IT SHINE". Along with two other catalogues from the collection, Wet-glue Labels and Pressure-sensitive Labels, it rounds out Lecta's extensive and versatile Metalvac metallized paper portfolio.

The new Graphic Applications & Packaging segment includes low substance metallized papers for gift-wrap paper (Metalvac R), food wrappers (Metalvac F), inner-liners for cigarette packets (Metalvac T) and now, with Metalvac G, a new addition for applications that require a high substance. The sample collection, available in English, Spanish, Italian and French, contains general information about the range, and technical specifications as well as samples of all the products.

The entire Metalvac range is 100% recyclable, made with ECF woodfree pulp and is manufactured according to ISO 14001 and EMAS environmental management standards, ISO 50001 energy management standard, ISO 9001 quality standard and OHSAS 18001 occupational health and safety standard. It is also available with PEFCTM and FSC® certifications upon request.
