New recyclable, compostable metallic paper
GreenPrint Packaging Solutions
Swanline Paper & Board (SPB) has collaborated with Slater Harrison to develop a metallic effect paper and board that is both recyclable and compostable for the luxury packaging market.
The CenturaPack range has been launched at Packaging Innovations.
The range is an environmental alternative to metallised polyester.
CenturaPack is a combination of Slater’s Centura Pearl and Metallic coatings delivering an innovative surface for paper or board. Notably the solution does not contain film or foil, and is suitable for most printing methods.
James Braddock, production director at Slater Harrison, said: ‘Working alongside SPB has allowed us to create a premium alternative which rivals existing products by offering a point of difference. We believe the CenturaPack range creates an air of absolute distinction, finishing products and packaging with a memorable creative flourish to showcase the essence of a brand.’
The range is ideal for coated materials used in the creation of luxury and tactile packaging, rigid printed tubes, creative cartons and matching self-adhesive labels for the food and beverage and personal care markets.
The novel combination of materials means the range has strong eco credentials; it is non acidic and non metallic, biodegradable, compostable and recyclable.
Ross Griffin, managing director at SPB, said: ‘CenturaPack is an outstanding example of innovation delivering a truly sustainable solution for the luxury packaging and point of sale markets. If the coating is applied to the surface of a recycled substrate such as white lined chipboard, for example, we have a completely recycled and recyclable combination that is not only aesthetically pleasing but functional for all packaging applications.’
SPB and Slater Harrison are on stand E50.
