The increasing demand for convenience packaging, fresh and ready-to-eat food along with environmental concerns such as food waste reduction and recycling are reshaping the packaging industry.
Reclosable food trays represent an attractive solution for the packaging industry to offer consumers safe food with extended shelf life while, reducing packaging weight and contributing to packaging circular end of life by offering recycled ready solutions. Moreover, resealable functionality enhances consumer perceived value and enable brands and Retail’s private labels to market packed food with a more premium positioning.
In this webinar, you will learn more about the lidding film technology behind peelable/reclosable food trays and their recyclability to enable packaging end of life circularity. In-depth recycling studies carried out on film structures containing Bostik’s HMPSA M-Resins by recognized certifying bodies in different recycling streams will be shown.
Experts from Bostik will share their insights on how to design reseal adhesives for mono-material reclosable lidding films to meet the increasing demand of converters and brands to contribute to a more circular economy.
In this webinar, you will:
Discover how PSA technologies can be customized according to your customer’s needs to manufacture resealable films for PE, PP and PET trays
Illustrate how resealable films containing HMPSA are fully recycling compatible with existing polyolefin recycling streams and comply with recyclability guidelines of thermoformed PET trays
Show that resealable films based on two distinct HMPSA technologies are rated similarly with regards to recycling in existing/future streams
Show why lidding films with resealable functionality can contribute to the packaging weight reduction (relative to rigid packaging) and extend food shelf-life and reduce food waste
