ProActive Recyclable R-2000F is a PE-based laminated structure designed for excellent performance in cold temperature conditions. Its enhanced stiffness and scuff-resistance, compared to standard surface printed films, offers outstanding display characteristics in the freezer case, boosting brand differentiation while supporting sustainable messaging. It has been prequalified for store drop-off recycling through PE recycling streams.

ProAmpac is committed to providing our customers sustainable alternatives to their current products that do not sacrifice manufacturing or end-use performance. Our material scientists have designed a product that is unique to frozen-food packaging, that runs at-rate, and is recyclable,” said Adam Grose, chief commercial officer for ProAmpac. “The debut of R-2000F comes on the heels of ProActive Recycle Ready Retort RT-3000 film which we launched just a few weeks ago. We are excited to introduce this unique technology that will immediately help brands advance their sustainable packaging goals,” continued Grose.

ProActive Recyclable R-2000F can be supplied with a pre-applied recyclable Inno-Lok® zipper. Ideal for running on high-speed vf/f/s or hf/f/s equipment, R-2000F is also available in pre-made pouch format. For additional differentiation in the freezer case, gloss or Signature Surfaces Registered Matte finish options are available.

“Maintaining filling machine efficiency and superior shelf appearance was at the forefront of the design process when we developed R-2000F. The film has been proven to run ‘at-rate’ on existing equipment,” stated Hesam Tabatabaei, vice president of product development and innovation for ProAmpac. “Our ProActive Recyclable R-2000F has superior heat resistance, a robust sealant technology, and excellent dimpling resistance, which makes it an ideal replacement for gusseted frozen food packaging made of non-recyclable PET/PE or OPP/PE laminations.”
