The R-1000 film is recyclable in flexible polyethylene (PE) film streams and qualifies for store drop-off in North America. It is available with a registered matte or gloss finish, or with ProAmpac’s Signature Surfaces Paper Touch tactile enhancement.

“We partnered with ProAmpac because of their unique approach to innovation, expanding lineup of sustainable alternatives, and how well they align with Ocean Spray’s culture of collaboration and our legacy as a cooperative of farmer families,” says Tracey Todesco, Commodity Manager-Packaging at Ocean Spray.

Designed to help brands meet their sustainability goals, R-1000 is available in standard or high-barrier versions, offering a recyclable high-performance alternative to conventional film laminations. With high heat-resistance and premium sealant technology, R-1000 outperforms typical recyclable mono-material films in high-speed form/fill/seal applications and provides superior seal quality, according to ProAmpac.

“When developing R-1000, we wanted to ensure that it maintained the speed of vertical and horizontal form fill sealing machines and ran much faster than typical mono-material films currently in the market,” adds Hesam Tabatabaei, vice president of Product Development and Innovation for ProAmpac. “It has been engineered with high heat-resistance and unique sealant technology that resists ‘gum up’, burn-through and deformation during high-speed packaging.”
