Features of Pulp Mold
Molded pulp is molded paper product made by immersing mold in a pulp suspension obtained by mixing recycled paper containing plant fibers with water, absorbing the pulp suspension through many small holes on the surface of the mold and adhering it evenly with a mesh mold, then it is dried after it is peeled off. Since water and recycled paper (plant fibers) are the main materials, there are no harmful substances. The used water is then purified and returned to nature. It is a renewable biomass resource that can re-circulate until it is finally returned to nature. Instead of throwing away paper such as newspapers and cardboards, they are collected by local residents and transform them into new products for the present and future. This eco-friendly cycle is characterized by repeated and never-ending efforts.
Using recycled paper from Anjo city as raw materials for pulp molding that are collected via resource collection from elementary schools, junior high schools, town and children's associations and confidential corporate documents
Use different used paper materials such as newspapers, magazines, corrugated papers, milk cartons, and so on.
Used paper is placed and stirred in water. We then melt the used paper with a machine called a pulper.
A machine called a screen removes garbage (foreign substances) such as metal fittings used for magazines, or paper with vinyl coating
The materials are selected carefully and then molded by the machine.
The molded product is placed in the dryer, dried and finished.
The finished products are packed up and then shipped to our clients.
It is widely used to keep the freshness of eggs, fruits and vegetables and to improve work efficiency. We are promoting the development of products to replace plastics, and demand for industrial cushioning materials is increasing.
It is collected as a recycled resource and used again as a raw material for molded pulp. Molded pulp, which was not reused as a resource, is returned to the earth over a long period of time.
