Inteplast Group’s BOPP Films and Engineered Films (IEF) have developed a film portfolio of recyclable, mono-material flexible packaging featuring cutting edge biaxially oriented polyethylene (BOPE) films and low seal initiation temperature (SIT) sealant webs. The portfolio will be exhibited at this September’s Pack Expo in Las Vegas.
When used in tandem, these BOPE films and low-SIT sealant webs support the industry-wide shift toward flexible packaging that is recycle-ready and circular economy friendly. Potential applications include stand-up pouches, fresh-cut produce packaging, cold-seal packaging, and vertical and horizontal form, fill and seal.
Historically, traditional multi-material flexible packaging has been non-recyclable due to the complications with material separation. The use of mono-material PE flexible packaging improves recycling rates, reduces waste, and promotes the sustainable use of resources.
IEF President Bob Stein said, “I am very excited to be working closely with our colleagues at BOPP Films on this very relevant project. Together, I know that we bring an impactful solution to those seeking store drop-off solutions for pouches.”
