The basis of moulded fibre is paper fibre. Moulded fibre products, such as egg cartons and fruit packaging, are made from a "mush" of paper and water. To be more precise, what we are talking about here is vegetable fibres, which are subdivided into primary and secondary fibres. Primary fibres are wood fibres from trees which have grown for several years. These are only used to a very limited extent in the manufacture of moulded fibre.

Secondary fibre materials make up the biggest percentage by a long way. Foremost in this category is waste paper, which is traded in 40 different classes throughout Europe. The moulded fibre industry alone ensures that approx. 200,000 tonnes of it are ecologically recycled every year.

Advantages:

Recycable

  • Moulded fibre packaging is made from renewable raw materials (which are CO2 neutral) and is biodegradable. This is one of the main environmental benefits.
  • Moulded fibre is usually made from recycled paper. Recycling saves precious resources, creates less emissions and helps to solve the problem of waste disposal.
  • Materials made from renewable resources like paper help to protect limited resources such as fossil fuels.


Biological

  • Moulded fibre packaging may be easily recycled or biodegraded. This makes moulded fibre simpler to manage after use.
  • Moulded fibre meets the growing awareness that customers have about environmental responsibility.


Stable & absorbant

  • Moulded fibre absorbs condensation when it comes to rapid changes in temperature. For several products this quality is extremely important.
  • Moulded fibre cushions, protects and absorbs shocks through its ability to compress.
  • Moulded fibre remains stable throughout a wide temperature range.
  • Moulded fibre is a warm, ergonomic and tactile material and therefore very much preferred for several products.
  • Moulded fibre is silent, and pleasant to handle.
