Sustainability in 2019
HLP Klearfold spent 2018 researching ways to make plastic packaging more sustainable and promise to do just as much in 2019. HLP Klearfold looks into different structures and finds ways in which plastic packaging can be used following its initial use.
Giving plastic packaging a secondary-use only furthers the life of packaging. Not only does HLP Klearfold offer expertise in secondary-use packaging, but also offers recyclable packaging.
Recyclable plastic packaging.
HLP Klearfold offers 100% recyclable plastic packaging. PET plastic packaging is the most commonly used plastic packaging and is recognised as being a non-toxic, safe, flexible material. See below in detail the packaging HLP Klearfold use:
APET: (polyethylene-terephthalate) – Considered by many as the ideal material for plastic packaging with excellent clarity and print surface at a good price.
RPET: (recycled polyethylene-terephthalate) – An eco-friendly option of plastic material that offers excellent clarity and a similar print surface to PET. Produced with 30% PET waste.
PETG: (polyethylene-terephthalate glycol-modified) – This modified version of PET offers high impact resistance but is not as easy to print or decorate as other materials. Produced with 100% naturally occurring ingredients.
PP: (polypropylene) – The lighter option at 35% less weight to other materials with very good flexibility at a good price. Produced without water and zero harmful emissions.
