Do you still remember the "abaca-crisis"? Due to climate issues the main raw material for teabag filter paper became not only short but also significantly more expensive in the years 2007/2008. Many small tea packers had to reduce their production since their filter paper demands could not be satisfied anymore.
That was the time when the idea of a non-abaca filter paper was born. In the tea industry hardly anybody wanted to believe in such a development. But what was taken to be impossible became reality: since five years now we distribute an abaca-free non-sealable filter paper. Our material runs on all tea bag machines using non-heat seal filter paper:
- IMA C21, C23, C24, C27, C28
- Teepack Constanta, Perfecta, Compacta
- Teamac MD20, MD20 Plus, MD25
- HST PT21, PT25, PT33
