Creep & grammage reduction
Sensitivity to water is a big driver of increased grammage and loss of mechanical properties for corrugated boards. By suppressing capillarity and making liners and fluting superhydrophobic, pulp savings could be as high 25%.
Plastic, PFAS & Paraffine substitution
These unsustainable materials are often used to provide water protection to all sorts of packaging, from corrugated to flexible. We can replace them for a fraction of the cost and make such products recyclable in the standard stream.
Release liners can be very difficult to recycle because of their silicon coating. We can offer the same surface energy at a lower cost with a recyclable solution.
Single use packaging
Paperization of packaging is here to last because of legislations, consumer demand and environmental goals. Giving it the necessary barriers used to be a challenge but we are solving it.
Dry and wet molded pulp solutions are booming. But protecting them, notably from water is challenging. Our treatment works perfectly on 3D shapes to provide this necessary barrier.
Paper products are increasingly considered a great construction material. By making them permanently resistant to water, we expand their usage potential.
Membrane distillation can desalinate water with very low energy requirements but current membrane are very expensive. We are working on developing low-cost and high-performance paper membranes.
Oil-only absorbent papers
Whether it is for the industry or to remove oil from the oceans, our technology makes possible paper that absorbs only oil and not water in order to replace polypropylene.
Face masks, filter and gowns
Our ability to have paper resist to droplets but remain breathable, makes it a competitive new material for healthcare and filtering applications.
Our process can also be applied on other fibers such as cotton, allowing the development of bio-based fabrics with superior protection and recyclability properties.
Agriculture & Horticulture
Whether it is to develop paper tags and replace plastics, molded pulp pots or plastic-free flower packaging , we enable it.
