Hard packaging made from PLA

PLA film form an excellent oxygen and aroma barrier for biodegradable food packaging. They can be produced on the same line in addition to PET film.

Applications

Yogurt pots
Trays
Drink cups, coffee cups
Cup lids for hot and cold drinks
Coffee capsules

Properties

Biodegradable
Transparent (not heat-resistant)
Heat-resistant (hot drinks) C-PLA
Barrier

Benefits

Recover almost pure polyolefines by recycling
BVOH offers a barrier effect up to three times more efficient than EVOH
Lower content of other polymers well below 5%

Separating layers in recycling

The water-soluble barrier layer is flushed out in the recycling process. The residue is then almost pure polyolefines.

Technology

Option 1: Barrier thermoforming film line

Equipment

REIcofeed PRO feedblock with edge encapsulation (7 to 11 layers)

Show Coextrusion feedblocks

The Reifenhäuser barrier thermoforming film line can also run with composites based on PP or biobased PP – while retaining the same biological water-soluble barrier layer. Almost pure polyolefines remain after recycling.

Option 2: Value:PET line

The alternative Value:PET line configuration for 100 kg/h comes with an attractive price/performance ratio.
