SUSTAINABLE PRINT MATERIALS

Environmental protection and sustainable business have become an integral component of the modern economic cycle. Consequently, VPF has been registering a growing demand in the area of adhesive bonds for some time now for sustainable packaging solutions of primarily consumer-oriented end use.

As a result, sustainable face materials were qualified during extensive test coatings and can now be combined with various adhesives and backing papers from the proven VPF modular assortment system. The new face materials include solutions for both, paper and foil, for all printing processes with a minimum quantity of 1.000 m2 for all products. Out of a large number of face materials available on the market, VPF qualified materials with an especially sustainable character. Aspects such as recyclability, compostability and available certifications played as much of a role during the qualification process as the origin and the associated logistical distances (CO2 impact).

Grass and Bagasse papers VPF

Grass and bagasse papers

During the production of grass paper, a significant volume of normal grass fibers are used as regenerative raw materials while plant-based, non-edible harvest remains are used for bagasse paper (for example from crop plants such as rice or sugar cane). This approach significantly contributes to conserve resources and protect the environment.

Furthermore, the materials are also suitable for label printing for sophisticated products in the food, beverage and cosmetics industries due to their high ecological quality.

NatureFlex TM films VPF

NatureFlexTM films

NatureFlexTM films are based on renewable raw materials from cellulose (wood cellulose from sustainably controlled plantations). The films are available in white, transparent and silver, are oil and grease resistant and have excellent printing properties.

Due to its high-quality appearance, this film is ideal for labeling fruit and vegetables, drinks and cosmetics. NatureFlexTM films are compostable both on an industrial scale and at home.
