Plantic eco Plastic R recyclable ultrahigh barrier packaging

Thursday, 16 May, 2013 | Supplied by: Plantic Technologies Ltd

Plantic Technologies has developed what it says is the first renewable and recyclable ultrahigh barrier packaging format, Plantic eco Plastic R.

The material format combines PET and Plantic biodegradable film to provide a packaging material which has ultrahigh gas barrier properties and is made from up to 60% renewable materials. The material can be fully recycled with the PET recovered in the traditional recycling streams with Plantic’s barrier material dissolving and biodegrading in the process.

Plantic eco Plastic R trays and roll stock require no investment in new processing or packaging technology and can be directly substituted for existing materials into the supply chain, the company says. They are a drop-in replacement for a range of traditional plastics used in modified atmosphere and ultrahigh barrier packaging.

The rigid trays and roll stock are offered in a high-clarity transparent form as well as a variety of colours and multicolour formats.

According to Plantic, every 1000 MT of Plantic eco Plastic R used in place of traditional barrier plastics saves 5.4 million kWh of energy and 2700 MT of CO2.
