/INS. Walki has developed a new fibre-based soil mulching solution that is completely biodegradable. This organic mulch type, which is used for weed control and to optimise soil conditions and crop yield, is the first of its kind on the market.
/INS. Moisture in buildings is a big problem in the construction industry. Trapped moisture, either due to external intrusion or condensation from within, causes dampness, damages structures and can lead to mould that has serious health implications. Walki has developed a new, unique membrane that prevents humidity from getting to the structures of the building. Walki®Active is a dual-purpose, vapour variable membrane made from PP non-woven and a functional film layer. The variable water vapour barrier property makes Walki®Active ideal for circumstances where there are big variations in temperature and moisture.
/INS. The new production unit in Walki’s Valkeakoski plant has made the first deliveries to customers. So far the production line has met expectations.
/INS . Expansion in the home food delivery market and increased regulation in the pharmaceutical industry is driving demand for thermal blankets needed to protect cargo during transportation.
/INS . In May 2015, we announced that Mondi Group had approached Walki Group, in order to acquire two of Walki’s extrusion coatings sites: Pietarsaari in Finland and Wroclaw in Poland. The deal was subject to competition clearance. The commission raised concerns about the impact on the competition environment, and a considerable time was spent on discussing ways to alleviate these.
