Catcher Board MB12

​Catcher Board MB12 is an innovative board solution developed by Smurfit Kappa to prevent the migration of mineral oil hydrocarbons from packaging into food products.

Catcher Board MB12 reduces the migration of any organic substances by 99%, and has been tested for a shelf life of more than 12 months. It is certified by Eurofins and ISEGA, both world leaders in the food and pharmaceutical product testing and approved laboratories for food safety.

The activated carbon layer in the recycled board keep pollutants within the material and adsorbs the odours even in the cut edges of the board, giving food products a reliable protection against migration contamination by organic materials. It also protects against organoleptic effects of any taste andodour into the food.
