Molded Fiber

As the market moves to replace single-use plastics, molded fiber products have gained ground as an environmentally friendly alternative.


When used in molded fiber production, Omya mineral fillers increase machine runnability or efficiency through lower energy consumption, faster drainage, and reduced chemical cost.


They also improve molded fiber quality by enhancing surface properties and printing performance.
