The world's first manufacturer of filter paper
The swedish chemist JJ. Berzelius(1779 - 1848) is regarded as the inventor of the first real filter paper. He was the first in using pure wet-laid-all-rag paper for the retention of precipitates in chemical analysis.
At Berzeius' suggestion, the development and manufacture of such paper was begun around 1815 at J.H. Munktell's paper mill at Grycksbo. Similar production was later begun in England and Germany, but the 'Swedish Filter Paper' retained its leading position, and its characteristics, particularly its purity, set the standard for analytical filter papers.
The paper which was hand-made at the time of Berzelius, is still made at the same paper mill today, but now with the aid of modern paper-making technology. Munktell filter papers with Berzelius picture - your assurance of original quality!
