A novel paper production technology for sustainable packaging

April 2019
Gallery Paptic 1
Gallery Paptic 1


Paptic® is a bio-based, recyclable, and renewable next generation packaging material that enables sustainable brands to replace plastics in their packaging.

The material combines the versatility of plastics, the renewability and recyclability of paper, with the tactual properties of non-woven materials. Its main raw material is sustainably sourced wood fibre, the same material used in paper and paperboards. Other raw materials are biobased and compostable man-made fibres chosen based on the requirements set by the application, and additives used in the production of paper and paperboards. The Paptic technology is based on a novel paper production technology called foam-forming, meaning the replacement of water in paper production by foam. This enables broadening the product features to areas impossible with traditional paper production technologies. Paptic can be converted into various packaging products with the same production lines and machines used in converting plastics and paper enabling the fast market adoption. Paptic differs from plastics and paper in how it feels in hand creating a high quality impression. With Paptic material the retailers and brand owners can shift to sustainable solution without jeopardising the brand image.
