What is Stone-Paper?

 

Stone-Paper is an earth friendly, energy efficient and an acid free paper that is neither synthetic nor wood pulp fibre based. 

 

Stone-Paper is a natural product manufactured from calcium carbonate, CaCO3, powder using proprietary additives as a bonding agent.  The calcium carbonate is collected as waste material at existing limestone quarries and is ground up into a fine white chalk powder.  A small quantity of non-toxic resin is then added and together these materials are converted into a printable substrate.
