WHAT COMPONENTS COMPOSE REPAP?
Repap is made up of 80% calcium carbonate (CaCO) and a small percentage, 20%, from non-toxic resins (high intensity polyethylene).
The calcium carbonate present in Repap comes from the limestone recovered from caves and used in the construction industry. The Calcium carbonate is reduced to a fine powder and the polyethylene acts as a binder, creating Repap, a resistant and durable, as well as a waterproof paper. A paper that is also soft, smooth, bright white, resistant like a film but without the use of substances derived from petroleum.top
WHAT PROCESS IS CARRIED OUT TO CREATE REPAP?
Repap is created through a "clean" manufacturing process that does not use water nor emits toxic agents in the air.
