The World's First Paper Tube Lid

April 26, 2022

The world is one step closer to being plastic free, thanks to the collaboration of two innovative packaging companies. Scandicore, one of the Nordic region's leading manufacturers of sustainable paper cores and tubes for the manufacturing industry, has partnered with PulPac, a world leader and owner of Dry Molded Fiber, to develop a paper lid for 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 entirely plastic-free and fiber-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," says 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 a low cost. The patented technology is available to converters that set up their own production. PulPac has developed the PulPac Modula standardized machine platform to accelerate the shift, 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," comments Sanna Fager, Chief Commercial Officer at PulPac.
