Walki has introduced a new recyclable material for non-food packaging that does not need demand separation of the coating prior to recycling.
With an increased demand from consumers, retailers, brand owners and e-commerce providers for fully recyclable packaging, Walki innovated a material that is recyclable without separating the coating.
The most important requirements for packaging e-commerce or non-food applications such as household goods, toys or games are strength and sealing properties. “Walki®Fibre Wrap delivers on strength and is also heat sealable, unlike many other paper-based packaging solutions which are glued”, explains Bernd Gelder, Business Development Manager for Industrial Packaging. “The major advantage of heat-sealable paper solutions is that they allow producer to use the same equipment used to seal plastic.”
All grades of Walki®Fibre Wrap are also all printable. Gelder continues, “We can offer a base material with heat-seal properties on the back and high-quality flexo printing on the front. There is no need to use a separate printing provider since we can deliver the final packaging material in reels.”
