With graphic concrete® technology you may realize beautiful concrete surfaces. The company's product is a patented specialist paper used in the production of precast concrete panels. Graphic concrete® paper is used to create patterned, textured, exposed and smooth fair face concrete surfaces.
The graphic concrete® paper is a 100% carbon neutral product made from renewable raw materials. The paper is manufactured from sustainable Nordic certified wood using only green energy. The waterproof coating treatment of the paper is made from ecological fossil-free raw material.
“In the early stages of product development for graphic concrete, we investigated using thermoplastics instead of paper. The fact that there would be as much plastic waste generated as there is surface area on the facade of a building seemed impossible. Very soon we found a partner with whom we developed a paper-based, ecologically sustainable and recyclable product. A clean graphic concrete® paper has always been possible to recycle as paper recycling or energy waste, but before the paper coating was made using fossil-based oil. At Graphic Concrete, product research & development is continuous. Thanks to the development of raw materials, we have now switched to a pine wood-based raw material for the paper coating, resulting in a 100% CO2-free product.”- Samuli Naamanka, founder and inventor of graphic concrete.
