At FachPack 2019, ppg > companies will be presenting flexible packaging with a focus on design for recycling, the use of regranulates and renewable resources. The focus here will be on new developments in purely polyolefin packaging solutions to replace previously preferred mixed laminates. Furthermore, the possibilities of using post-consumer recyclate (PCR) and renewable raw materials will be presented on the basis of various applications.

 

 

In the context of Design for Recycling, the requirements for flexible packaging have changed considerably. In the field of tension between packaging law and public pressure, the challenge lies in implementing the changes for already established packaging concepts. The decisive factor here is that the functionality of the packaging material is maintained in the course of the material change.

 

Polyolefin solutions for top films and tubular bags.

 

With this objective in mind, ppg > has developed a recyclable film for young cheeses for a customer in the dairy industry that enables a degassing process. The challenge was to replace the PA with a PP and at the same time find a way to maintain a medium-strong gas barrier. You can discover these and other new developments at FachPack 2019 in Hall 7, Stand 341.

We would be pleased to invite you to a personal exchange at our exhibition stand to discuss the possible solutions for your packaging films. Given the time constraints at the trade show and the limited slots, we kindly ask you to set a date with us beforehand. The contact details can be found at the top of this article.
