The EcoStar laminated sheet structures provide an optimal solution for perishable food items. The high-barrier multi-layer material includes the EcoStar PCR PET material alongside an EVOH barrier, a peelable seal, and a PE-based sealant best applied for perishable food items that need moisture and oxygen protection. Placon recommends the non-barrier sheet for use as a moisture-preventing container with peelable film-seal lids. The finished structures of both sheets are designed to accompany airtight seals in high-speed automation machines, and ultimately deliver a longer shelf-life.
“Customers are looking for sustainable, plastic packaging options. Providing barrier sheets made with post-consumer content helps them meet their sustainability goals,” stated Brian Hodek, Sales Director, Food.
Placon has used post-consumer recycled PET in their PET packaging for more than thirty (30) years. The EcoStar facility remanufactures recycled curbside and ocean-bound PET bottles and thermoforms by producing flake and making
simply better packaging.
