'The best ever GC1 board we have created'

20th July 2017

We are now stocking the superb Performa Brilliance GC1 grade, described by StoraEnso as 'the best ever GC1 board we have created'. You may have already read our articles in industry press but here is an extract from some online coverage.

“Manufactured at their Fors mill in Sweden, Performa Brilliance is described by Stora Enso as ‘the best ever GC1 board we have created’. Driven by the demands of the market for a product that sets new standards for visuals, printability and runnability. The key characteristics of Performa Brilliance include high brightness, excellent smoothness, and a great visual appearance. The board offers the most superior whiteness in the FBB market on both the top and reverse side.

With this in mind, Performa Brilliance has been specially designed for advanced graphical and high-end packaging applications, and is ideal for folding carton applications typically used for pharmaceutical, cosmetics and luxury packaging sectors. Its quality and versatility make it suitable for premium brands, as well as being the ideal grade for graphical applications such as; book covers, greetings cards, folders, tickets, and tags.

 With sound, environmental criteria, Performa Brilliance is available with FSC®, PEFC™ and EU Ecolabel certificates.

Warren have Performa Brilliance in stock now, available from 360 Mic / 230 Gsm – 585 Mic / 345 Gsm and sizes 450 x 640 mm – 720 x 1020 mm. Heavier weights for Performa Brilliance will also be introduced by Stora Enso later this year.

Commenting on the addition of Performa Brilliance to its graphical packaging board ranges, Warren’s Commercial Director, John Turner, stated, “StoraEnso have really raised the bar with Performa Brilliance in terms of whiteness within the GC1 market; StoraEnso describing Performa Brilliance as ‘the best ever GC1 board they have created’ is some statement and one that made this decision a very easy one to make. With the improvement in whiteness Performa Brilliance challenges some SBS grades in terms of whiteness but at the same time offers up to 22% savings in weight, making it a very attractive alternative in many ways.”

    We've been helping a local college out with material for their GCSE Art and Resistant Materials coursework for a few years now and when they contacted us recently to ask if we could continue to support them, we were only too happy to offer some graphical board. With tight constraints on local authority budgets these days and the juggling act head teachers have to perform-Craig Curtis, Hamilton College's Assistant Head of Faculty and Teacher of Design Technology has always been greatly appreciative of the support we can offer.
