Timing of launch

In 2019, we developed Lamina® heat sealable paper.

Explanation of technology and business model

In recent years, it has been growing interest in paper materials as an alternative to plastics. Lamina® is a packaging material that enables the creation of packaging using only paper, without the use of plastic. Through the application of paper manufacturing and coating techniques developed over many years, we have succeeded in adding a heat seal coating layer to a paper substrate.
