Packaging composites combining biobased materials and fossil-based plastics
Plastic reduction waste is currently a major concern for consumer and packaging makers. Converters develop composite packaging containing less plastic and subsequently more of a renewable resource including: cellulosic material like paper, cardboard, wood or modified starch…
Composite packaging can be trays, cosmetic tubes, cups…They can be produced by:
- Thermal lamination of a PE/adhesive film with a cellulosic material;
- Extrusion coating or lamination of PE / adhesive film;
Tie layer for bio-based packaging
SKFP resins are used as tie layers for bio-based packaging, following both trends to reduce fossil-based polymers and plastic content within packaging structures.
