Cupforma Natura

The Economical and Ecological Choice

Cupforma Natura

​Pure, safe and recyclable Cupforma boards are used for drinking cups as well as other food service and food packaging applications. Cupforma Natura is the most widely used option since it provides a highly economical and ecological choice for cup manufacturers. Drinking cups made of Cupforma Natura are light but their functionality is good, thanks to the technically advanced material.

Various barrier options depending on use

The board can be coated with thin layers of polymer compounds, on one side or on both sides, depending on the use. With the polymer coating on one side, Cupforma Natura is used in fast food, coffee-to-go and ice cream packaging. Cold drinks and soups require a coating on both sides of the board, and two-side coated boards are also used for fast food, chilled foods and ice cream. Where PE coating isn’t enough, we offer high-barrier coatings – for example, for packaging biscuits and bakery products, chocolate, liquid foods or even butter. Today, drinking cups can be 98% based on renewable raw materials by selecting one of our advanced bio-based coatings. Compostable options are also available to support your sustainability targets.

The winning combination

All members of the Cupforma family deliver excellent results in offset, flexographic and digital printing. With the right coating, the Cupforma boards offer optimal barrier and sealing properties, printability, strength, formability and convertibility. Cupforma enables a combination of high-quality innovative graphics with original designs, shapes and sizes to meet the diverse needs of today’s demanding brand owners and consumers.
