Wet-press technology creates precise angles on sustainable, customizable molded pulp trays

Be Green Packaging uses in-tool curing to mold pulp trays that perform like thermoformed in food applications.

In this four-minute video, Packaging World’s Pat Reynolds, VP/Editor-in-Chief, and Richard Bontrager, Director of Product Development at Be Green Packaging, examine the processes that are making molded pulp trays more like thermoformed in design, production, function, and performance. The sustainably sourced pulp goes through several presses to extract water, inject ink, and cure, which produces precise draft angles and undercuts. In-tool curing also creates a smooth look and feel that fits well with expectations in food and FMCG categories.
