Innovia Films has worked with Interseroh, an independent German recycling and consulting company, to have its newly launched high barrier BOPP Propafilm Strata SL film evaluated. The film has been awarded a ‘very good’ rating and has been awarded the ‘Made for recycling’ logo.
Interseroh analyses and evaluates the packaging based on sound criteria along with the entire after life processes (collection, sorting, recycling and processing).
Alasdair McEwen, global product manager packaging, Innovia Films, explained: ‘This certification proves the recyclability of our new Strata BOPP film. As it is a mono structure, the film performs much better in recycling than composite films and can be added to the PP closed loop and reused.’
Propafilm Strata SL provides a very effective barrier to aroma, mineral oils and oxygen even at high relative humidity levels ensuring increased shelf life and reduced food waste. It is glossy, is food contact compliant and chlorine free.
