High-quality, laminated and sealable innerliners for tobacco products.

AR Metallizing is a leading producer of laminated and sealable innerliners for tobacco products.

Our innerliner product range consists of aluminum paper laminates, metallized papers and printed papers. AR Metallizing’s innerliner portfolio has been developed to deliver the ideal barrier properties that ensure cigarettes maintain perfect moisture levels and freshness.

Our innerliners have the necessary folding properties to be able to maintain a tightly closed package and offer neat, defined edges and corners. We have also developed our papers to run at optimal efficiency on high-speed packing lines.

In addition to giving valuable protection to tobacco products, our innerliners can add an element of prestige to cigarette packages with their metallized finish. AR Metallizing’s papers can also be printed or colored to maximize brand impact.
