Innovia’s New Strata Film Awarded ‘Made for Recycling’ Qualification

 

05/08/2019

Innovia Films has worked with Interseroh, an Independent German recycling and consulting company, to have their newly launched high barrier BOPP Propafilm™ Strata SL film evaluated.  We are delighted that the film has been awarded a ‘very good’ rating and has been awarded the ‘Made for recycling’ logo.

Interseroh analyse and evaluate the packaging based on sound criteria along with the entire after-life processes (collection, sorting, recycling and processing).  The result of their stringent analysis is a scale which determines whether the packaging is non-recyclable through to very good. 

Alasdair McEwen, Global Product Manager Packaging, Innovia Films explains “This certification proves the recyclability of our new Strata BOPP film.  As it is a mono structure, the film performs much better in recycling than composite films and can be added to the PP closed loop and reused.”

Propafilm™ Strata SL provides a very effective barrier to aroma, mineral oils and oxygen even at high relative humidity levels ensuring increased shelf life and reduced food waste. It is glossy, is food contact compliant and chlorine free.

The film is suitable for use in a range of markets, is printable and offers a wide seal and hot tack range.
