Paptic® Materials

A unique combination of sustainability, strength, and positively distinctive haptic properties

What
is
Paptic®

Paptic® is a next generation sustainable packaging material made of renewable wood fibres.

Plastic-free Paptic® materials offer a unique combination of sustainability, strength, and positively distinguishable haptic properties. The materials were developed to reduce the use of plastic in packaging, and with Paptic® you can replace oil-based materials in numerous packaging applications.

Innovative Paptic® outperforms paper and has a smaller environmental impact than cotton. We like to say that Paptic® combines the best properties of existing materials.

Paptic® is distinctive in texture and appearance, instantly recognisable to consumers, and easily associated with quality, performance, and environmental consciousness.
