The Global initiative Two Sides which unites companies from the entire value chain of the paper and printing industry announced its newest member, the European Manufacturers Paper Honeycomb Association (EMPHA), the pan-European association of honeycomb paperboard manufacturers chaired by Tony Moscrop. For the record, the ‘honeycomb’ as it is informally known, has the best characteristics of its class thanks to the combination of superior strength and rigidity due to its unique shape of hexagonal-shaped cells. The strength and rigidity are associated with an extremely low weight per cubic meter. These functional elements make the paper honeycomb an interesting alternative for designers of protective packaging or as a base material for the production of doors, acoustic walls, exhibition panels and even furniture. By joining Two Sides, EMPHA has access to an extensive library of communication tools, consumer research, cutting-edge information, sustainability advice and events.
