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).
