Rockstock is a revolutionary breakthrough in papermaking technology.
Rockstock is the registered trade-name of a ground-breaking high quality, coated paper with outstanding environmental values that prints extremely well using standard inks (No special inks are required.)
It can be used in most situations where conventional and synthetic papers are used offering exceptional printing, waterproofing and tear-resistant qualities. Rockstock claims to be the world's most environmentally friendly paper.
It is manufactured from ground down waste stone and offcuts used in the building industry. It contains no wood fibre.
Rockstock has a low carbon emission
It uses significantly less energy to produce than wood fibre paper.
It generates no effluent in its manufacture. (waterborne, airborne or solid)
It requires no water, acid, base or bleach during production.
Any trimmings or waste paper from production are recycled to make new paper.
It is both recyclable and photo-degradable (It is not bio-degradable as it does not attract insects or organisms to consume it.) When it fully degrades there are no microplastics as the resin oxidises into 1.4ppm of Nitrous Oxide and 65ppm of CO leaving only calcium carbonate behind. Recent research has concluded there are no halogens present.
Compostable where sufficient heat is present to leave only calcium carbonate.
2 main product ranges 1. S-Class (Sustainable Range) 2. R-Class (recycled range).
Sometimes confused with synthetic paper, Rockstock is neither synthetic nor pulp or fibre based and is termed "Rich Mineral Paper". Rockstock has qualities of both pulp and synthetic papers, but more importantly, it is much more environmentally friendly than either of the two. The printing qualities and exclusive feel make Rockstock a paper product not seen the likes of previously.
