The packaging enabels a 100% mono PET-based tray to be topped with Plastopil’s 100% mono top lidding, with the benefit of a superior PET sealing layer
Plastopil has launched a ready-to-recycle flexible packaging range designed to meet demanding recycling regulations. Based on the concept of mono-material construction of various materials such as PP, PET and PE, the Plastopil range offers full solutions for high barrier applications.
The innovative range of solutions includes 100% PET for MAP tray lidding films, 100% PP for TFFS systems, and 100% PE for pouches, VFFS and HFFS flow applications. The versatile packaging enables a 100% mono PET-based tray to be topped with Plastopil’s 100% mono top lidding, with the benefit of a superior PET sealing layer. By eliminating the need for a PE/PP sealing layer, it enables 100% recyclability of the bottom. With claims of excellent anti-fog properties and sealing capabilities which prevent contamination from a variety of sources, these films create a ready-to-recycle package without compromising on performance.
Plastopil’s 100% PP for TFFS systems is comprised of a mono-forming bottom and non-forming top lidding, which provides a ready-to-recycle package with excellent forming and durability, ideally suited to high barrier applications.
The company’s 100% PE range for pouches, VFFS and HFFS flow applications offers a high barrier construction of MDO PE, designed for stand-up pouches and flow pack applications, enabling easy to print trouble-free operation.
“Plastopil’s ready-to-recycle flexible films meet growing industry demand for solutions that conform to the increasingly stringent recycling regulations,” says Gal Segev, CTO. “Our significant investment in research and development has resulted in a range that keeps foods fresh and free of contamination, while meeting the need for fully recyclable packaging.”
