As the increased use of renewable raw materials in packaging is also supported by the Packaging Act (§21 VerpackG), which has been in force since January 1, there is currently an increased demand for corresponding solutions.
Quite in line with this, we have developed a laminated film, which contains 50 percent renewable raw materials. This biobased share could be expanded to 80 percent if necessary. In this, the process capability of the packaging procedure is safeguarded.
The specific application is a cellulose polyolefin laminate pouch packaging, which can be used for packing dry products. The product features good sealability, and its steam plus its oxygen barrier properties are also comparable to conventional laminate films. Due to a special usage of cellulose the laminate includes a MOSH-MOAH barrier. The necessary stiffness of a pouch is also given as well as good transparency of the viewing window.
Thus, these material properties as well as the process capability of the packaging procedure can safeguard the presentation quality at the point of sale. And so, this packaging does provide an alternative to conventional laminates. If you are interested, we will be happy to advise you.
