Paper-based ‘Flow Wrap’ is a packaging solution that offers several benefits for companies seeking attractive and sustainable packaging options. Comprised of 95% Kraft paper with a polyethylene lamination, Flow Wrap provides a combination of paper’s natural appeal and the barrier properties of the polyethylene lamination.
One of the key advantages of Flow Wrap is its barrier capability. The polyethylene lamination acts as a barrier to vapor and oxygen, making it suitable for packaging goods that require protection from these elements. This feature is particularly important for products that are sensitive to moisture or require an extended shelf life. Another significant benefit of Flow Wrap is its sustainability. The composition of 95% Kraft paper makes it predominantly paper-based, which is a renewable and biodegradable material. Additionally, the entire package is recyclable when placed in curbside recycling receptacles.
By utilizing Flow Wrap, consumer goods companies can achieve a balance between functional packaging and environmental consciousness. The attractive appearance of the Kraft paper combined with the barrier properties and recyclability of the polyethylene lamination make it an appealing choice for environmentally conscious consumers.
Flow Wrap is ideal for any product that requires barriers to moisture or Oxygen. Perishable food items, vitamins and nutraceuticals, electronics and computer components, are all types of products that would benefit from Flow Wrap’s barrier characteristics. Further, brands with a sustainable focus can align their packaging with their brand promise.
