ProAmpac Debuts Recyclable Paper-Touch Flexible Packaging

Dec 14, 2020

CINCINNATI, (December 11, 2020) – Continuing its mission to deliver sustainable solutions, ProAmpac, a flexible packaging leader, announced the introduction of its Signature Surfaces Paper Touch Recyclable line of products. This enhanced innovation utilizes ProActive Recyclable film that is flexographically coated with Signature Surfaces Paper Touch coating and runs on vertical or horizontal form/fill/seal equipment.

“By combining our ProActive Recyclable film with ProAmpac’s Signature Surfaces Paper Touch coating we are able to help customers achieve sustainability goals while reinforcing brand appeal with a premium textured product package,” said Maria Halford, vice president of global marketing.

The natural look and feel of the Signature Surfaces Paper Touch resonates with organic, and “natural” preferences of many consumers, while offering CPG customers yet another opportunity for their brands to stand apart on the shelf.

Signature Surfaces Paper Touch Recyclable is one of the company’s ProActive Sustainability offerings. It is recyclable through polyethylene recycling streams and approved for recycling through store drop-off programs. With both standard- and high-barrier, rollstock and pre-made pouch options available, this Signature Surfaces enhanced recyclable film offers excellent heat-resistance and premium sealant technology suitable for high-speed form/fill/seal applications.

“When developing ProActive Recyclable film with Paper Touch, we wanted to ensure the film runs at the same speed as non-sustainable laminated structures. The introduction of Paper Touch surface enhancement allows the recyclable packaging to simulate the feel of paper while protecting the ink by having superior scuff resistance. Its excellent heat resistance and premium sealant technology allow the film to run on high-speed pouching or form/fill/seal processes,” stated Hesam Tabatabaei, vice president of product development and innovation.
