Recyclable PP film replacing metallised PET
ALMA Packaging was faced with the challenge of replacing a vapour-deposited APET film with a more recyclable alternative. The eye-catching look and the characteristic colour of the packaging had to be retained.
ALMA Packaging developed a film solution based on polypropylene (PP) that is highly recyclable without compromising the functionality of the film.
To meet the colouring requirements, ALMA Packaging worked closely with a partner to develop a masterbatch colour solution. This solution made it possible to reliably implement the customer’s desired colour nuances in the manufacturing and converting process.
This case study shows how ALMA Packaging successfully developed a packaging alternative with better recyclability and brought it to market, enhancing the product presentation in the process.
The recycling infrastructure demands packaging that is as simple as possible so that it can be recycled. ALMA Packaging has further developed the highly functional barrier film so that it can be recycled like mono packaging film.
made from bio-based film
Consumers not only require the coffee to be sustainable, but also the packaging. Together with our partners, we have therefore developed a coffee capsule film made from renewable raw materials and brought it to market maturity.
