What exactly is kraftplex?
The versatile material consists of pure, renewable wood fibre* (100% cellulose fibres, without chemical additives and adhesives) and replaces sheet metal, composite materials and plastics in many areas.
It is sustainable, recyclable and compostable, as well as stable and permanently malleable like sheet metal.
kraftplex is certified according to DIN EN 71-3 (children's toys).

What do all kraftplex types have in common?
What does FO, CL and ST mean?
kraftplex FO stands for "formable", i.e. malleable. The material is slightly more flexible and pliable than the ST. The surface has a very fine structure and a smooth look.
kraftplex CL stands for "curve", i.e. curve. The material is particularly flexible. It can be cut with scissors. The smooth surface is calendered and slightly marbled.
The kraftplex ST stands for "stiff" and has a light mesh structure and a natural beige colour. The kraftplex CL has a smooth surface and a hue that is slightly redder than the kraftplex ST. This type of kraftplex is higher density, hot pressed and comes in a fixed sheet format.
