Ampacet: Synthetic tissue paper for food, craft, and gift packaging

SynWrap enables production of a one-layer tissue paper alternative to Paper 2.0 that can be as thin as 0.5 mils and can be produced with blown or cast film extrusion processes.

SynWrap, a synthetic tissue paper, provides superior moisture barrier properties as well as recyclability and tear resistance compared to conventional products used for gift and floral wrap, packaging, deli/food wrap and a wide range of craft applications.

A natural extension to Paper 2.0, synthetic paper from Ampacet combines additives and resins with multi-layer or mono-layer construction. But SynWrap goes a step further by enabling production of a one-layer tissue paper alternative that can be as thin as 0.5 mils and can be produced with blown or cast film extrusion processes. Not only does it provide manufacturers with economies of scale by eliminating the need for secondary processes, such as multi-layer lamination, it offers ideal deadfold properties. It can also replace coated papers, including wax-coated paper and PE-paper laminates.

SynWrap also can be extruded with any color or special effect to create dazzling hues and unique textures, or it can simply be produced in white or kraft paper colors. It can

also be combined with functional additives such as a moisture-absorbing desiccant to absorb excess humidity in a package.

“With the increasing cost and environmental impact of paper use, SynWrap, which is

reusable and recyclable, provides the perfect alternative,” says Doug Brownfield,

Ampacet Strategic Business and Marketing Manager. “It has the visual and tactile appeal—and even the unique sound—of tissue paper. When compared to paper, Synwrap also delivers the added benefits of strength and moisture barrier properties, for overall enhanced functionality. We’re excited about the tremendous possibilities of SynWrap.”

Suggested applications include food, deli and meat wrap, bakery packaging, chewing gum packaging, gift wrap, floral wrap, craft projects and merchandise bags.
