We have two main production processes: the one to create paper and the one to make self-adhesive materials.
To produce high quality papers and self-adhesive materials we pay special attention at every stage of our production processes, from the choice of the main raw materials – pulp, paper, chemicals and films – to reducing our environmental impact.
Paper Production Process
Pulp, fillers, adhesives and dyes: these raw materials are dispersed in the water and mixed in different quantities depending on the paper we need to create. Its production begins with creating the main body which is then conveyed to a flat table. Then a machine (the headbox) distributes it evenly over the entire fabric, forming the structure of the paper sheets. This process is aligned with the attention we put to the environment: 100% of our pulp is FSC certified, we use natural additives, and 97% of the water we use is returned clean to the environment after being recycled several times.
The paper can undergo further processing, one of which is to turn it into self-adhesive materials.
Self-adhesive production process
The self-adhesives production process uses paper reels and films (plastic and non-plastic) as raw materials. The environmental impact in terms of water consumption is significantly less than that of paper production, about 2%.There are basically two processing methods: silicone coating, which for more than 20 years, at all our plants, has involved the exclusive use of raw materials that are free of toxic solvents; and adhesivation, through the application of the adhesive to the silicone-coated support, which is then transferred to the face material (label).
