Our materials - An overview

The PackEx warehouse

PackEx stands for speed, short runs and sustainability. That's why all our materials are made from renewable raw materials and FSC® certified (FSC® C106855). In doing so, we want to do our part to maintain healthy and sustainable forest management.

What we also stand for are individual packaging solutions. That's why we offer five different types of cardboard, some of which have very different properties. With the right material, you can optimally emphasise the characteristics of your product and stand out even more at the point of sale. With the sustainable carton types from PackEx, you also show your customers that you care about the environment.

Looking for the perfect substrate for your product? You'll find it here.

GZ Premium White


The material, consisting of GZ cellulose cardboard, lives up to its name: With its 2-fold coated front side (uncoated reverse side), it is not only our whitest, but also the highest quality substrate in our range. The maximum degree of whiteness results in a very good contrast in the printed image. This gives your product an extremely high-quality touch.

Excellent for:
