I've got questions about Fibrease™ wood foam .
I'm looking for the person responsible for Fibrease™ wood foam .

Imagine a sustainable foam material with similar usage areas as fossil-based polymer foams

Fibrease™ by Stora Enso is a lightweight wood fiber-based foam material made from Nordic wood. It is resilient and has great damping and insulation capacity, whilst being recyclable in existing paper/board streams. The material is designed to replace polymer foams and formed in-place fossil-based materials in packaging solutions. It is a soft yet resilient material with a memory foam like behavior and it fits various types of conversion methods like sawing, die-cutting and thermoforming.

Key benefits

  • Curbside recyclable in paper/board stream

  • 70-80% reduced CO2-emissions when replacing polymer foams

  • Made from by-product to FSC-certified wood production

  • Wood fiber content of 80-98%

End-uses

  • Cushioning and inserts for transport packaging

  • Insulation solutions and packaging

  • Interior panels

  • Furniture

Why Fibrease™?

We have a wide range of foam materials suitable for fixating products in foam, formed by or around products as well as thermoformed into exact shapes to position various products. Our Fibrease™ Cushioning is available in commercial scale, whilst Fibrease™ Insulation and Fibrease™ Thermoforming is under development. Interested in either, please contact us to find out more!

Cushioning

Fibrease™ Cushioning

For cushioning and void fill in transport packaging solutions as well as inserts in heavy-weight product transports. Developed to match existing polymer foams in damping performance.
Isolation box

Fibrease™ Insulation

For insulation purposes in meal kit deliveries, online grocery sales or medical shipments. Developed to match existing fossil-based solutions in insulation capacity.
Thermoforming

Fibrease™ Thermoforming

For formed in-place packaging inserts, as well as for shaping furniture or interior details. Developed to fit existing thermoforming equipment, hence work as a drop-in solution.

Development of Fibrease™ started as an innovation project in Hyltebruk, Sweden in 2014. The material is produced using an energy efficient dry-forming process, hence enables a cost-competitive material compared to replacement solutions
