CelluStraw, a paper-based alternative to plastic drinking straws

Finnish group Ahlstrom-Munksjö is proposing a valid alternative to single-use plastic straws with the launch of a new fibre-based paper drinking straw solution called CelluStraw™.

Consisting of specialty paper grades developed respectively for the inner and outer plies of paper straws, it is particularly suitable for production on high-speed converting machines.

Its high wet-strength and mechanical resistance delivers good product integrity and ensures that the paper straws will withstand contact with liquids for a sufficient time. CelluStraw is made of responsibly sourced natural fibres and is renewable, biodegradable and safe for food contact. It is recommended for cold drink end-uses.
