Stora Enso introduces DuraSense – wood-based biocomposites for premium cosmetics, food and luxury brands seeking alternatives to plastic packaging. With the help of DuraSense, customers who place very high demands on aesthetics and tactile values can make their packaging more eco-friendly. With DuraSense we can now offer different biocomposite solutions, such as caps and bottle stoppers.
DuraSense is a cost- and resource-efficient alternative for reducing the environmental impact of products. With little or no change to existing production techniques, the biocomposite material is developed to match conventional plastics and therefore fit existing moulds. With the blend of wood fibres and bio-based polymers, it is possible to get up to 98% renewable content and, thus, reduce the dependency on limited fossil resources.
