US-based ProAmpac, owned by Pritzker Private Capital, has designed the latest paper packaging for dry food products like dehydrated fruit, confectionery, and flavoured oatmeal
ProAmpac, a US-based flexible packaging and material science company, has launched its patent-pending ProActive Recyclable RP-1000 High Barrier (HB) paper-based technology.
RP-1000 HB paper packaging, which expands its current ProActive Recyclable RP-1000 series, is said to provide superior oxygen, moisture barrier, and grease resistance.
ProAmpac, owned by Pritzker Private Capital, has designed the latest paper packaging for dry food products like dehydrated fruit, confectionery, and flavoured oatmeal.
ProAmpac global marketing director Nathan Klettlinger said: “RP-1000HB is a pre-qualified curbside recyclable paper solution that seamlessly integrates with existing equipment, simplifying the transition process and minimising costs compared to less efficient sustainable alternatives.
“RP-1000HB is another solution that enables brands to effectively achieve their sustainability objectives.”
The RP-1000HB is said to be an eco-friendly substitute for conventional multi-material laminates and is offered in a variety of formats, including rollstock and pre-made three-sided seal pouches.
The packaging is made of bleached paper for superior graphic reproduction and is extensively recyclable in curbside paper streams, the flexible packaging company said.
ProAmpac global sustainability innovation director Amir Saffar said: “In rigorous tests simulating up to 85% relative humidity conditions, RP-1000HB preserves its barrier properties, assuring the longevity of products susceptible to spoilage due to environmental moisture.
“Unlike conventional paper solutions that offer inadequate grease resistance and subsequent packaging vulnerabilities, RP-1000HB delivers superior grease resistance with excellent seal performance on horizontal and vertical form/fill/sealing lines.
“Its unique characteristics pave the way for integrating recyclable fibre-based packaging into numerous applications.”
Last month, the company partnered with the packaging engineering department of Hochschule der Medien Stuttgart (Stuttgart Media University) in Germany to develop coated paper technologies.
As per the deal, both parties will work together to develop kerbside-recyclable, high-performance technologies for coated paper.
