BillerudKorsnäs AB develops world’s first stretchable paper


BillerudKorsnäs AB, a leading producer and supplier of fibre-based packaging solutions, has developed a cost-effective and environmentally sound alternative to plastic called FibreForm® - the first 3D formable (stretchable) paper.

FibreForm is made of 100% primary fibres that offer unqiue bending and stretching properties. The sides of the package can be macro-formed to change the intimate details of the body of the package and the paper lends itself to exciting 3D designs.

BillerudKorsnäs AB claims that the form and feel of FibreForm opens up new possibilities for creative packaging, offers owners of individual brands the potential for outstanding shelf impact and opens the door to a number of possible applications, including FibreForm Packaging's FreeFormPack™ solution.


BillerudKorsnäs has also developed a totally new system for forming, filling and sealing products, enabling highly cost-efficient supply chain processes from reel to reel.
