Brown Liner Grades

At DS Smith we are always thinking about how we can provide the best possible products to satisfy not only our customers, but their customers as well. Even with the most innovative and challenging packaging designs, DS Smith testliners measure up in terms of moisture, thickness and fibre distribution.

The right product for every  application

Today’s applications require testliners that address a range of priorities. Suitable strength must combine with consistency, reliability and excellent printability - all in a cost effective solution. DS Smith Liners present exceptional attributes to meet these demands:

  • Consistently high values of mechanical properties
  • Optimum, stable and reliable level of colour stability
  • High printability performance
  • Good runnability on the corrugator

These main characteristics have been proven for years with many internal trials but also on our customers’ corrugator, enabling us to continuously improve and extend our product range. Our paper mills are also certified by a Forest Certification and for Food Contact which ensure our products are safe and sustainable.

Our DS Smith guarantee

During the manufacture of DS Smith Liners, multiple screening and washing steps using state-of-the-art technology are coupled with four decades of experience working with recovered fibre. The result is a 100% recycled presentation Liner with superb runnability characteristics. The manufacturing process is controlled via ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001 and ISO 50001 procedures to ensure uniform quality, whilst minimising the impact on the environment.

Paper properties are also constantly monitored and kept under control so that application failures are avoided. Moisture content and grammage control is very accurate with laboratory verification guaranteeing that paper specifications fall within very narrow parameters. Each customer reel is evaluated against strict rejection limits to assure perfect box performances and thus the security of the interior contents.

Last but not least, our customers can benefit from high flexibility in production, that’s why we work closely together to ensure we find the best solutions to your needs and your customers’ needs.
