ProAmpac Launches Curbside Recyclable and Heat Sealable Paper Packaging

ProAmpac, a leader in flexible packaging and material science, announces the launch of ProActive Recyclable Paper-1000, the newest addition to the ProActive Recyclable® series of products. Recyclable Paper (RP)-1000 is the first product launched in a series of new curbside recyclable paper-based packaging solutions that are heat-sealable with good moisture barrier and excellent directional tear properties.

“Designed to run efficiently on existing filling equipment, ProActive Recyclable RP-1000  delivers high-performance while also being easy for consumers to recycle at home,” states Adam Grose, chief commercial officer for ProAmpac. “Brands are demanding more paper-based sustainable packaging solutions.  RP-1000 fulfills ProAmpac’s promise to deliver sustainable products while not sacrificing performance,” said Grose.

An ideal replacement for non-sustainable conventional multi-material laminates, RP-1000 is suited for frozen food applications such as ready-to-eat meals and vegetables.RP-1000 can also be used for some dry foods and secondary packaging applications such as confectionery. Pre-qualified for curbside recycling, RP-1000 can be recycled in both paper and mixed streams. 

“Our curbside recyclable RP-1000 series has optimum stiffness for enhanced shelf appearance, very good moisture barrier for dry products, and is designed to withstand freezer conditions. In addition, its premium sealant technology allows it to run on high-speed form-fill-seal equipment,” states Hesam Tabatabaei, global vice president of product development and innovation at ProAmpac.

RP-1000 series are available in rollstock, stand up, and three-side seal pouch formats. Using ProAmpac’s award-winning high definition (HD) flexographic printed graphics, RP-1000 is available in natural kraft or bleached versions for brand elevation and customization.
