By selecting the most appropriate combination and mixture of raw materials we develop films that provide the best possible packaging solution whilst minimizing its environmental impact. We constantly strive to introduce alternatives to crude oil-based materials and are developing solutions that enable a significant downgaugingwhilst offering best product protection.
MULTIPET-R is a new polyester based film containing 80% recycled PET, decreasing Wipak's reliance on virgin materials derived from fossil fuels.
MP-R is aligned to the circular economy as substituting virgin materials for recycled PET granulate - sourced from a world-leading bottle recycling scheme - helps to achieve a 30% reduction of CO2-eq. emissions compared to standard A-PET/PE without compromising on the mechanical and optical properties of virgin A-PET/PE products.
MP-R is approved by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) for use as a food contact material, it’s suited to a variety of design options and can be finished with metalized or colored finishes as well as with single or dual side printing.
Material Selection + New Technology = Thinner Film Solutions
SC PLUS, a super thin and sustainable coextrusion film, which uses up to 25% less resources than conventional films, enabling a reduction of CO2 emissions by about 40%.
- Securing product safety
- Perfect transparency and brilliant gloss
- High puncture resistance
- Medium to extra high barrier
Heavyweight Performance in a Lightweight Package
Wipak has expanded its range of BIALON and BIAXER laminates, increasing their suitability for use in demanding applications of Mozzarella packaging where the seal strength and the durability of the packaging is of paramount importance.
The new laminates: BIAXER 55 White OFP; BIALON 40 WHITE OFP and BIALON 55 WHITE OFP can reduce the overall thickness of packaging by up to 25 µm whilst offering greater product protection through the higher seal strength and up to 20% increase in the force required to puncture the laminate.
Furthermore the new laminates overcome technical challenges specific to Mozzarella packaging, perform exceptionally well on machines to maximize the output that the customer is able to achieve.
“Mozzarella bowls are generally packaged in liquid on a high speed VFFS line. Sealing at high speed and through contamination is of critical importance. New BIALON/BIAXER OFP range does just that”, says Davide Zinzalini, Business Development Manager, Innovation Business at Wipak. “The seal tightness and excellent drop resistance ensure the product safety.”
