Protection is Our Strength

WestRock FIbreShield is the future of multiwall kraft paper

The highest strength, the lowest weight. For the most demanding of packaging applications, the FibreShield family of fully extensible multiwall paper delivers an optimized shipping sack solution ideal for 2-ply pasted valve applications.

Packaging optimization starts with the paper. Our access to a high quality, northern fiber blend and a commitment to manufacturing excellence results in enhanced tensile energy absorption (TEA) in both the machine and cross directions. No matter which way you drop it, sacks constructed with FibreShield deliver the most advanced burst and puncture resistance while using up to 50% less packaging material – a win for all stakeholders throughout the supply chain.

Purchasing and storage savings

FibreShield innovative two-ply sack construction means customers purchase less paper, which significantly saves on storage and warehouse space, as well as associated labor costs. That means more cashflow in hand at a time of increased competition.

Dramatically reduced total basis weight

The two-ply sack construction leads to a lower total basis weight, either by reducing the number of plies or lowering the basis weight of the plies. This enables major reductions in shipping and freight charges, when compared to conventional three or four-ply sack orders.

Increased production efficiency

Less changeover time due to fewer paper rolls to change. Therefore, the production efficiency is improved.

Extreme reliability

FibreShield has been tested to the most rigorous standards. It is extremely resistant to breakages during handling and shipping, as well as on the production line.

Efficient lead times

WestRock is one of the biggest players in high-performance kraft paper both in the U.S. and throughout the world. That means uniquely low domestic lead times, as well as a strong international presence.
