Heat shrink packaging has been used in many industries for a number of years, but is there a better alternative? Here, we look at a great alternative to heat shrink packaging for a variety of applications, which could help your business package more sustainably.
Taking the heat out of the packaging
Packaging continues to contribute significantly to dangerously high levels of CO2e in the atmosphere. We are a heavy consumer buying society. Our excessive consumption of over packaged products contributes to a carbon footprint that we simply cannot allow to continue. Traditional heat shrink packaging is generally made with plastic and always involves heat, but can you take this away and still have an eye catching and effective packaging solution.
Cold wrap packaging solutions could be the perfect heat shrink packaging alternative to box tapers and shrink wraps which often require vast amounts of corrugate or plastic (or both in much of the consumer packaging on the shelf) and energy to produce.
Cold wrap packaging is your environmentally friendly, cheaper alternative
Businesses choosing a secondary packaging solution that significantly reduces the amount of material and energy consumption to manufacture will demonstrate a commitment to a much more environmentally friendly world that their customers will notice and appreciate. It could even bring in more customers that align with the same values.
Innovative cold wrap packaging solutions such as our Trakrap system use an 8-micron linear low-density polyethylene solution that mix C6 and C8 long carbon chains to create robust, versatile (strong and stretchy) packaging. We design and make retail-ready packaging that meets consumer demands for less high energy over packaged eco-friendly product packaging. It can also be recycled time and time again, another winner for consumers.
We are an independent business, so our collaborations with leading packaging suppliers allow us to create ground-breaking packaging designs using less energy-consuming ‘cold wrap’ film. Either on its own or alongside minimum amounts of carton board, RPET, or corrugate. We create packaging that uses less material and produces less waste and what it does is recyclable! We guarantee our cold wrap packaging solution will be lower in cost and carbon footprint than any other transit or RRP solution.
• 90% reduction in energy consumption
• 70% reduction in plastic use
• 40% reduction in corrugate and cardboard box use
We believe that every small step businesses take to promote their commitment to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle will improve their brand image, and show your commitment to the future of our environment. Simply by reassessing secondary packaging choices, that’s pretty sustainable and certainly something your business could shout about. If it can be done by saving money too, why wouldn’t you want to find out more?
