FlowPap® Evo – Heat-sealable paper packaging material without plastic films!
At the moment people are paying increased attention to sustainability of packaging materials. At the same time solutions to replace packaging materials of non-renewable resources are being sought.
The accomplishment of development work, Pyroll Packaging introduces a new paper packaging web material based on renewable fibre raw material in which the functionality has been achieved without utilizing traditional plastic films.
Paper packaging web material can be utilized on existing packaging machines. It provides similar technical performance as conventional plastics for packaging dry food materials, when packaged product itself does not require specifically low water vapour permeability. The packaging material web can be manufactured with windows made of biobased- and biodegradable window film, if desired so.
The solution is based on FSC-certified fibre. It is lightweight, biodegradable and assist in reducing usage of plastics. Material can be recycled in cardboard waste collection.
