FIS welcomed Lahnpaper into membership last month. The company, which was founded in 1911 in the town of Lahnstein in western Germany, manufactures a range of specialist papers used in different construction applications.

Lahnpaper is interested in finding new partners who manufacture and/or supply to the following main sectors: acoustic ceilings, flooring,  drylining, partitioning, laminate manufacturing and concrete form work panelling.

They offer a range of specialist non-woven fibre papers in sheets or reels for the enhancement of internal or external structures and surfaces. The papers are strong, resilient, dimensionally stable (no stretch or shrinkage), tear resistant, air permeable and water resistant. Some have a particular capacity to absorb resins for added final product strength, thickness and durability. The papers are made from natural cellulose wood pulp fibre, with extra polyester/polyamide fibres included. An additional impregnation process also adds extra strength to the product.
