American Packaging Corporation (APC) commercially launched a RE Design for Recycle flexible packaging technology targeted at frozen food products. This new technology joins the RE sustainable packaging portfolio.

APC launched a recyclable flexible packaging for frozen food products.

 

Partnered with produce processors to replace the current non-recyclable, multi-material laminate, APC aims to develop recyclable packaging that maintains production throughputs while resisting product puncturing.

 

The new package format is an all-polyethylene (PE) package that include a pillow bag with a fin-seal produced on intermittent and continuous motion VFFS equipment at speeds up to 90 packages per minute.

 

The laminate was designed using an oriented print web which offers increased heat resistance, dimensional stability, and clarity for graphics. The print web is reverse-printed and then adhesively laminated to a sealant film, offering good opacity and lower temperature sealability.

 

The packaging structure can be modified for more stringent applications requiring enhanced moisture and oxygen barrier properties.

 

It can also be customized to include clear sealant if the desired, allowing for a window for product visibility. The oriented print web can be printed either using flexographic or rotogravure printing and allows for patterned or full matte gloss over-lacquer.

 

The new recyclable flexible packaging marks another step towards a more sustainable future for customers. “This application is another great example demonstrating APC’s goals to support our customers that are targeting the development of sustainable packaging solutions,” concluded Jeff Travis, manager of innovation and sustainability.
