To support brands and companies in a shift to using more sustainable packaging materials, Paptic has created a renewable and recyclable 100gsm packaging material grade, Paptic Sterna®, with a unique touch and feel properties. It is a tailor-made grade for carrier bags and e-commerce mailers. The main raw material used is wood fibres from sustainably managed forests. The new grade offers excellent printability and durability to maximise brand visibility and reusability.
“This new 100gsm grade widens our packaging material offering for environmentally conscious brands and retailers. The grade combines strength (wet + tear), lightweight, softness, and foldability at a competitive price point,” says Tommi Lehtisalo, Product Manager, Paptic Ltd. “It is thicker and stronger than a 120gsm kraft paper and its unique two-layer fibre solution allows for optimum printability and improved convertibility. With the new grade, we offer a strong, soft (no paper cuts) and wood fibre-based material option for high-quality e-commerce mailers or reusable carrier bags to e.g. grocery retailers, a sector in full motion towards more sustainable packaging solutions.
“All Paptic materials are sustainable without compromises: they are reusable, recyclable, and renewable. The new grade is recyclable in the paper or cardboard recycling streams. Our Paptic team is ready to discuss how the 100gsm grade can meet your packaging requirements.”
The new Paptic 100gsm grade is suitable for flexo, offset, inkjet, silkscreen, and digital printing. The material is available in FSC on request. The application process for Biobased OK **** (4stars) is ongoing.
