ProAmpac showcased and demonstrated its ProActive Recyclable R-1000 rollstock film running on packaging machinery during PACK EXPO. R-1000 is the newest member of the ProActive Sustainability™ product family and is well suited for a broad range of applications such as dry food, home and personal care, and pet food.
Designed to help users meet their sustainability goals, R-1000 is available in standard or high barrier versions offering a recyclable alternative to traditional laminations.
“ProAmpac is committed to help our customers meet their sustainable packaging objectives with products that perform at or above existing product performance levels,” says Adam Grose, chief commercial officer.
The new ProActive Sustainability film is FDA compliant for food contact and qualified by How2Recycle® for in-store drop off. Available in matte, gloss, or with ProAmpac’s Signature Surfaces® Paper Touch tactile enhancement.
“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 on the market,” says Hesam Tabatabaei, director of research innovation and technology for ProAmpac. “It has been engineered with high heat-resistance that resists ‘gum up’, burn-through and deformation during high-speed packaging.”
