Star Paper Tube expands line.

A new manufacturing line that utilizes proprietary extrusion technology will be installed at Star Paper Tube, Rock Hill, SC. The technology can handle a variety of solid waste products typically landfilled as its raw material, and, according to the company, will be the first line of its kind in North America.

The nonwoven extrusion process, which will be used to manufacture "StarGuard" material for use in appliance and other commercial product protective packaging, will consume primarily polyolefin wastes, although almost any thermoplastic material can be used in the process. In addition, non-recyclable papers such as polyethylene-coated products or paper-film laminates can be utilized.

Star Paper Tube's new facility is expected to be operational in April, 1993, with site consideration currently underway.
