June 26, 2018 - Monadnock Paper Mills, Inc. has entered into an exclusive licensing agreement with HS Manufacturing Group, LLC (HSMG) for the use of their proprietary HS SILVATM plant-based coating and additive chemistry.

The functional characteristics afforded by HS SILVA, combined with well-formed fiber-based substrates, result in products with oil and grease-resistant properties and/or significantly improved water resistance for applications like outdoor signage, horticultural labels and tags. While having improved durability these substrates will be 100 percent recyclable, 100 percent biodegradable and 100 percent compostable.

“We've partnered with HSMG over the last several years and have successfully used their unique chemistry to produce uncoated and coated paper products in a wide variety of applications.” said Paul Ciccone, Vice President of Research and Development for Monadnock. “We can create paper based products tailored to meet your needs while meeting the market requirements of recyclability and biodegradability.”
