BillerudKorsnäs and Arvid Nilsson join forces to reduce plastic waste on construction sites with a new innovative, water-resistant box made of super-strong cartonboard. The box packs and dispenses nuts, bolts and screws and is a sustainable alternative to plastic boxes.
The material used instead of plastic is CrownBoard Craft™, a stiff and exceptionally strong cartonboard made of 100% primary Nordic wood fibre, with a multiple-layer structure. The board is made by BillerudKorsnäs and sourced from responsibly managed forests and produced in state-of-the-art, energy-efficient processes.
To replace plastic boxes, a priority for Arvid Nilsson was water resistance. The box made of CrownBoard Craft can in fact be left outside in the rain for several weeks without collapsing or letting in water. This is due to the strength of the board, the laminated surface, and the converter’s clever packaging design without gaps at the bottom corners of the box.
