Arpa Industriale wins Piemonte
Arpa Industriale recently won the ¡°Piemonte Creative Award¡± for its Bloom Technology for FENIX NTM and Arpa HPL.
Arpa¡¯s products are made up of paper and thermosetting resins based on phenol. With Bloom, lignin technology is introduced to significantly reduce the amount of phenol included in the resin by 50%. Bloom is a lignin-based technology created by Arpa Industriale and Nemho, that is the R&D department of the Group that the company is a part of. Lignin is the world¡¯s second most abundant natural polymer in the world after cellulose. It is defined as the glue that holds wood fibres together. Though normally used by the pulp industry to produce energy, its use in thermosetting resins in innovative enough.
Highlighting the fundamental factors of technology, Sandro Marini, communication director of Arpa Industriale said, ¡°It was developed to increase the use of natural raw materials in the core of Arpa surfaces and FENIX NTM materials. Innovation, design, and sustainability are the fundamental factors on which the design of each new material within our Group is based.¡±
