Ahlstrom-Munksjö debuts EnduraFlex™ and HydroSize™ technologies for paper flexibility and water resistance

STOCKHOLM (News release) -- Newly developed technologies are constantly challenging the limits of what paper can do. With the introduction of two innovative product ranges, Ahlstrom-Munksjö continues to provide sustainable, fiber-based solutions for consumers.

Ahlstrom-Munksjö is dedicated to providing sustainable alternatives to non-renewable plastic materials in everyday life. Two new technologies further this goal, solidifying the important role that paper will play in an eco-friendly future.

EnduraFlex™ technology creates stretch in crepe and extensible papers, resulting in a product that can compete with alternative flexible materials. Extensible papers are structured to accommodate stretch; the surface of the paper is not affected by its inherent flexibility. Likewise, crepe papers produced with EnduraFlex™ technology showcase new levels of stretch without compromising appearance or functionality. The end uses of EnduraFlex™ papers are widely variable, ranging from use in construction materials to e-commerce and decorative packaging solutions.

HydroSize™ papers offer a sustainable alternative to traditional waterproof materials. Ahlstrom-Munksjö has developed enhanced water resistance within paper fibers and structure, preventing product saturation. The resulting papers are able to repel water and other liquids for long periods. This new technological opportunity provides consumers with a water resistant option in several different areas, including agriculture, gardening and various e-commerce packaging solutions such as cold chain insulated packaging.

"Our dedication to sustainability has yielded incredible strides in paper technology," said Zack Leimkuehler, Vice President of Ahlstrom-Munksjö's Technical Solutions business. "EnduraFlex™ and HydroSize™ make paper a viable solution in several new areas. As with all of our products, a variety of fiber blends, colors and finishes are available."

"We are committed to developing paper solutions that are capable of meeting many different consumer needs," continued Leimkuehler. "With these cutting-edge technologies, we can continue to push the boundaries of paper capability."
