SBS stands for Solid Bleached Sulfate.
Solid bleached sulphate (SBS) also known as Solid bleached board (SBB) is a virgin fiber grade of paperboard which is the highest quality and most expensive paper board substrate.
This grade is made purely from bleached chemical pulp and usually has a mineral or synthetic pigment coated top surface in one or more layers (C1S) and often also a coating on the reverse side (C2S). It is a medium density board with good printing properties for graphical and packaging end uses and is perfectly white both inside and out. It can easily be cut, creased, hot foil stamped and embossed. Its other properties, such as being hygienic and pure with no smell and taste, make it usable for packaging aroma and flavor sensitive products such as chocolate, cigarettes and cosmetics.
SBS can be used as moisture barrier in the liquid and food packaging, and high end packaging where the quality of printed image is required.
Additional uses of SBS are health, packaging, pharmaceutical packaging and frozen food packaging.
