European flexible packaging company Adapa Group has rolled out a new paper-based twist-wrap packaging solution, called PaperTwister, for use in confectionary and sweets.

The launch was announced by Adapa via a LinkedIn post.

The new twist-wrap solution offers an easy-release feature that helps to provide a seamless unwrapping experience for customers, replacing typically sticky packaging in the sector.

PaperTwister comes in multiple variants such as white, printed, and metallised and is printable with up to eight colours.

To meet the affiliated manufacturer’s requirements, PaperTwister can be used as a folded pack or as single- and double-twist wraps.

The company said that the solution has been designed to offer the ‘highest’ packaging speeds, of up to 2,300 pieces per minute.

Some of the common applications of PaperTwister include packaging for sugar and chocolate-coated products, soft chew items, and toffee.

The company is also offering multiple materials options for PaperTwister, including conventional paraffin-waxed, paraffin-free, and even palm oil-free materials, to suit its customers’ needs.

The paper wrap is available in a grammage range of 40g/m² to 50g/m².

Adapa claimed that its twist-wrap packaging is made using 90% paper content and a plant-based coating, and is therefore recyclable.

The packaging has already received the Confederation of European Paper Industries’ 4EverGreen certification for being repulpable and is in line with on-pack recycling label standards.

In July this year, Adapa collaborated with Finnish fibre-based materials producer Ahlstrom to introduce new flow pack packaging for rubber products made by the French office stationery brand Maped.
