transparent paper for tissue and napkin packaging

For companies looking to switch to transparent paper for tissue and napkin packaging – it’s now possible! Meet thinwrap® transparent paper packaging for tissues and napkins. It's a great alternative to fossil-based non-paper wrappings and bags. The lightweight transparent paper can be heat-sealed, and runs smoothly on existing machines, as tested with Senning, a well-known supplier of machines for packing napkins and tissues.

In recent years there has been an increasing demand for paper-based packaging solutions, such as the request that launched the collaboration between delfort and Senning. delfort provided test reels and Senning carried out the first runs on their SE660 D packaging line. The result was very promising, the paper could easily be converted on the packaging machine. The collaboration proved the runnability of the specialty paper. Thus, providing the market with a highly functional heat-sealable fibre-based packaging solution for tissues and napkins.
