Scandicore launches world’s first paper tube lids made with PulPac’s revolutionary Dry Molded Fiber technology. Bridge volumes will be manufactured by PulPac and first art print deliveries with the new lid are estimated to reach consumers this spring.
Scandicore, one of the Nordic region’s leading manufacturers of sustainable cores and tubes for the manufacturing industry, have together with PulPac, world leader and owner of Dry Molded Fiber, developed a paper lid to perfect the company’s paper tubes. One of Europe’s leading online stores for art prints will be first in line to offer their products in completely plastic free and fibre-based packaging from Scandicore.
“Safeguarding the environment and the quality of our products, are our primary competitive advantages. The physical strength of the Dry Molded Fiber products, in combination with resource efficiency, where valuable water resources and energy are saved, in addition to significant reductions of CO2, makes this a strategic investment for Scandicore. We have been listening to the market. This solution is heavily asked for by our customer and we are proud to start the journey to support the green and sustainable choice of our customer” said Eva Engström, CEO at Scandicore.
Dry Molded Fiber, invented and owned by PulPac, is a fiber forming technology that can replace single-use plastic with sustainable fiber-based alternatives at low cost. The patented technology is available to converters that set up their own production. To accelerate the shift, PulPac has together with partners developed the PulPac Modula standardized machine platform, now starting to roll out to licensees and available at the PulPac Tech Center for sample and bridge volume production.
“We offer a ‘wheat to bread’ setup, delivering application development, tool making, and sample production to ease the transition to Dry Molded Fiber. In close collaboration with our clients, we develop competitive, and sustainable market ready applications. The paper tube lid is a perfect fit for our technology, and we are happy to partner with Scandicore to bring this unique solution to the market”, said Sanna Fager, chief commercial officer at PulPac.
