Airgel, the new line of sustainable airlaids
Creating this new airlaids is the latest step in our company’s approach to eco-sustainability.
After the release of Airgel, the high absorption airlaid containing Spongel, Magic’s range expands with Airgel g-grade, biodegradable and compostable airlaid certified Ok Compost.
How this innovative airlaid was born
Many hours of R&D, along with significant prior expertise, led to a first turning point in 2015 with the release of Spongel, the super absorbent compostable powder with no chemical additives, certified OK Compost by TUV Austria too. A production plant is then planned and implemented for the development of advanced absorbent materials. It was a fundamental step in the evolving process that led us to innovate the airlaid industry with Airgel g-grade and to contribute to a revolutionary change in food packaging applications. Until now, the structure of absorbent materials implied the aid of thermoplastic fibres and, in general, of chemical finishing; Airgel g-grade only uses fibres of sustainable and renewable origin. The absorption performance is the same as for the super absorbent products usually available in the market but with undeniable benefits for the environment.
