Sappi Symbio

In touch with nature - high performance sustainable materials

Sappi Symbio is a new natural composite material combining high quality cellulose from wood and thermoplastics. Benefit from a more natural look, soft and warm touch, high rigidity and low density.

Sappi Symbio consists of premium cellulose fibres which are well dispersed in a polymer matrix and is delivered as granules.

It can be used in standard processing equipment, such as injection moulding and extrusion. It can be used in a wide range of applications across furniture, consumer electronics and automotive components.

The long-term vision is to provide bio-based materials fully derived from wood, that offer attractive alternatives to fossil based plastics and composites.
