Then the second video with:
Tuomas Mustonen, Founder of Paptic
Paptic material is produced using a novel paper production technology called foam forming. Wood pulp is the main raw material, similarly to paper, but value adding raw materials such as man-made fibres can be added to create the unique product characteristics such as textile like tactuality, high tear strength and weldability. The material is also mineral free and hence can be used to protect or wrap fragile materials.
