Plastic-free, heat-sealable material

Plastic-free, biodegradable & heat-sealable paper packaging material

Consumers are paying increased attention to sustainability of packaging materials. At the same time solutions to replace packaging materials of non-renewable resources are being sought.

The accomplishment of development work, Pyroll Packaging introduces a new paper packaging web material based on renewable fibres in which the functionality has been achieved without utilizing either fossile-based or bio-based plastics.

How it works in practise

Paper packaging web material can be utilized on existing packaging machines. It provides similar technical performance as conventional plastics for packaging dry food materials, when packaged product itself does not require specifically low water vapour permeability. The packaging material web can be manufactured with windows made of biobased- and biodegradable window films.

Economic opportunities and broader social significance

The solution is based on FSC-certified fibre. It is lightweight, biodegradable and assists in reducing usage of plastics. Material can be recycled in cardboard waste collection.
