The European Packaging and Packaging Waste Regulation (PPWR) has cleared a decisive hurdle, with agreement on the text having been reached. At the core of the PPWR is the recyclability of packaging; polypropylene (PP) and polyethylene (PE) will play a key role here. adapa Group has relied on both materials for some time already, and has now expanded its portfolio of PE laminates for flowpacks.

MonoFlow(re) E-type: The best barrier properties to protect sensitive products

Behind the brand name MonoFlow(re) E-type lies a whole family of PE-based laminates from the specialist for flexible packaging solutions. This reflects the enormous experience of adapa Group and is the constantly improving result of many years of development and customer collaborations. Experience from which the Group's customers can benefit massively today: whether chocolate, cheese, ready meals or dry products, even products with such strong flavors as coffee or products from the Home & Personal Care sector—adapa has references covering almost all markets and products, with both horizontal and vertical flow-wrapping applications.

Adapa Mono Flow(re)e TypeDepending on the customer and product, the Group uses the MDO-PE film CrystalPE, which was developed in-house, as well as BOPE films to produce its high-performance laminates. The decisive factor in deciding which film specification is chosen is its performance when it is with the customer, which is constantly monitored and optimized on site by the Group’s application engineers. For an attractive, eye-catching appearance at the POS, customers have the luxury of being spoilt for choice: the Group offers high-quality rotogravure, flexo or digital printing. The packaging experts are naturally on hand to provide advice and to support their customers in choosing the best technology for their individual requirements. These may be, for example, smaller application quantities or a reduced number of colours – both are ways to decrease the amount of material used while maintaining a high-quality print image.

More insight and choice, with the PPWR within sight

However, it will be some time before the PPWR, mentioned at the beginning, comes into force. For the time being, national packaging regulations still apply to food manufacturers. However, customers of adapa Group can rely on the Group’s expertise in keeping an eye on the various Design for Recycling regulations. The Group has therefore tailored its range of films to precisely these requirements and developed a comprehensive portfolio of PE-based packaging solutions in addition to the MonoFlow(re) E-type flowpack films: With shrink bags, thermoformable and top web films as well as twist wraps, adapa’s customers are well prepared for the future.


"adapa has made significant investments in the recent past, including in the expansionof MDO-PE technology. The constant further development of the MonoFlow(re) E-type family is aligned with our strategy, which is based on the motto #future is driven by action. With our Designed for Recycling products, we are again emphasising our aspiration to supply customers with packaging that is in keeping with the times," explains Marek Pawlak, CSO at adapa Group.
