The ProActive Recyclable series was launched in February this year.

RP-1000 HB has been designed to offer a high barrier against moisture and oxygen. It also has grease resistance properties.

All these features together make RP-1000 HB an ideal packaging solution for dry food products, for instance flavoured oatmeal, dehydrated fruit and confectionery.

ProAmpac global marketing director Nathan Klettlinger said: “RP-1000HB is a pre-qualified kerbside recyclable paper solution that seamlessly integrates with existing equipment, simplifying the transition process and minimising costs compared to less efficient sustainable alternatives.

“RP-1000HB is another solution that enables brands to effectively achieve their sustainability objectives.”

RP-1000HB, according to ProAmpac, is a sustainable alternative for replacing conventional multi-material laminates.

It can be adapted in various versatile formats, such as pre-made three-sided seal pouches and roll stock.

The company said it has used bleached paper for making this packaging solution, which makes it suitable for graphical reproduction.

After use, consumers can easily recycle RP-1000HB in kerbside paper streams.

ProAmpac global sustainability innovation director Amir Saffar said: “In rigorous tests simulating up to 85% relative humidity conditions, RP-1000HB preserves its barrier properties, assuring the longevity of products susceptible to spoilage due to environmental moisture.

“Unlike conventional paper solutions that offer inadequate grease resistance and subsequent packaging vulnerabilities, RP-1000HB delivers superior grease resistance with excellent seal performance on horizontal and vertical form/fill/sealing lines.

“Its unique characteristics pave the way for integrating recyclable fibre-based packaging into numerous applications.”
