Fully Recycled Clay Coated News Back (FR CCNB) is made from recycled materials and is 100% recyclable. It features tear-resistant qualities and a naturally occurring clay coating for a smoother printing surface on the front side. The backside features a brown or grey kraft material which tends to be rougher in texture. CCNB's coated front side prevents ink from settling in the material, allowing for precise, crisp lines and details when printing. The backside is a food-safe material making it ideal for packaging food products and pharmaceuticals. This material is also very popular in the apparel industry for packaging shoes and other clothing items. CCNB can be customized through cutting, hot-foil stamping, and laminating, depending on your product and brand needs. Compared to the regular CCNB counterpart, Fully Recycled CCNB is 100% made with recycled material making it 100% eco-friendly.
