Can we have strong paper and still conserve our forests?

WHAT WE LOVE:

  • Using recycled paper to save the trees and forests that give us clean air
  • Recycled paper that is as strong and smooth as when made with new virgin pulp

BUT DID YOU KNOW?

  • Paper is made from wood fibers and fillers, which tend to progressively lose their strength as they get repeatedly recycled
  • This reduces the quantity and quality of recycled paper that can be used in the papermaking process

The Archroma Way: Safe, Efficient, Enhanced. It’s our nature.

  1. SAFE – IT’S OUR NATURE TO PROTECT
    A solid core: Our deeply rooted goal to protect people and our planet.
    Safe to use, safe to release and also safe to wear.
  2. EFFICIENT – IT’S OUR NATURE TO RETHINK SUSTAINABLE MANUFACTURING
    Innovating application processes that minimize resources and maximize productivity, both in our and our customers’ manufacturing as well as by setting ourselves ambitious sustainability goals.
  3. ENHANCED – IT’S OUR NATURE TO ADD ANOTHER LEVEL OF VALUE
    Your innovation is critical. Additional effects, functionalities and aesthetics give additional value, helping consumers to achieve their goals, for a life enhanced
