70 percent is the share of recycled material used in the production of the new release liner. The FSC-certified 70 g/m² kraft paper significantly reduces the use of virgin fibres; in addition, up to 60 percent of the energy and up to 70 percent of the water are saved in production.
Compared to conventional liners, the VPF kraft paper liner thus has a significantly improved carbon footprint. In addition, waste is avoided through the use of recycled paper.
The positive sustainability effect can be significantly increased even further by using environmentally friendly face materials from the VPF product range. For example, these include 100 percent recycled, grass and bagasse papers, which are available for a wide range of applications.
VPF has subjected the Kraftliner NSA700-476 to all the usual tests and proven its long-term ageing resistance with all common dispersion acrylic and UV acrylic adhesives from the VPF portfolio. The material is equipped with a slightly increased release value for paper and film face materials.
Also new and sustainable is the film-based, transparent R-PET liner, which VPF offers in a thick- ness of 30 µ. It has a 70 percent post-consumer waste content and is coated on one side with easy-release silicone.
Samples of the two new sustainable liners are now available from VPF.
