Flexible packaging and material science leader, ProAmpac, is pleased to introduce their latest ProActive Sustainability innovation, ProActive Recyclable R-2000S.

This pioneering polyethylene-based film fulfils the market need for a recyclable packaging option that withstands the demands of a microwave heating environment. ProActive Recyclable R-2000S is a patent-pending polyethylene-based film designed to run on high-speed form/fill/seal equipment and is pre-qualified for store drop-off recycling.

“ProActive Recyclable R-2000S is the latest iteration of ProAmpac’s hallmark high-performance, recyclable film series, filling the market gap in microwavable recyclable packaging for non-fat vegetables. ProAmpac has already launched R-2000F frozen food packaging, R-2000D dry food packaging, and QuadFlex Recyclable for human and pet food applications. These innovative products are helping brands achieve their sustainability commitments while providing consumers with the sustainable packaging they demand,” states Adam Grose, chief commercial officer for ProAmpac.

“Engineered for performance in cold chain storage, the polyethylene-based R-2000S withstands microwave conditions by providing superior seal integrity as well as thermal and dimensional stability for non-fat vegetables. The film is designed with superior heat resistance to run-at-rate on high-speed form/fill/seal machines. R-2000S is designed to excel in all performance requirements; particularly, its optimal stiffness and excellent dimpling resistance provide an enhanced shelf presence,” states Hesam Tabatabaei, vice president of global product development and innovation for ProAmpac.
