Flexible packaging company ProAmpac has expanded its ProActive Sustainability platform with the introduction of a new QUADFLEX Recyclable pouch.

The new pouch is produced using the company’s R-2000 recyclable laminated mono polyethylene product, a sustainable alternative to multi-material laminates.

QUADFLEX Recyclable premium pouch is suitable for pet food and treats, human food, and homecare products.

ProAmpac is offering the QUADFLEX Recyclable in either a side gusseted with flat or pinched bottom stand up pouch.

QUADFLEX Recyclable is said to provide a better heat resistance for run-at-rate filling speeds, as well as a wide operating window on filling lines.

Film structures, which come in standard or high barrier formats, can be made with clear windows in the main panels or the side gussets to showcase the product.

QUADFLEX Recyclable is available in matte or gloss surface finishes, thereby making brands connect with consumers in style on the pouch’s five-panel billboard.

Reclose is facilitated by recyclable press-to-close or hook-to-hook Aplix or Velcro zippers, said the company.

ProAmpac chief commercial officer Adam Grose said: “Combining recyclability, durability and excellent shelf presence with an easy opening and recloseable option, QUADFLEX Recyclable combines all the features of our hugely successful QUADFLEX format with the best of our ProActive Recyclable film structures.

“ProAmpac continues to innovate as brands and consumers demand more sustainable packaging. QUADFLEX Recyclable delivers a recyclable option that runs on our customers production lines at rate meaning our customers do not sacrifice productivity when moving to a sustainable specification.”

At present, QUADFLEX Recyclable is available in both terminated side gusset and full side gusset configurations.

ProAmpac stated that QUADFLEX Recyclable is pre-qualified for in-store drop-off through polyethylene recycle streams.

In July this year, ProAmpac acquired recycled paper packaging products manufacturer APC Paper Group.
