Board Similar to SBS board but is made from unbleached virgin fibers. It has a natural brown color and a rough texture. Used for packaging items like furniture, appliances, and other heavy-duty products.

Polycoated Board

Coated with a layer of polyethylene (PE) or polypropylene (PP) making the board resistant to moisture and giving it a glossy appearance. Used for packaging food products, like frozen foods and snacks.
