What if you could go with the natural flow?
A sustainable solution at the forefront of innovation
At Billerud, we think of natural flow as a way to unlock new thinking for a sustainable future. Plastic packaging has been around on a large scale since the 1940s and when it comes to flow wrap, there are countless products still wrapped in plastic for lack of better alternatives. Up until now! By introducing SWAPP Flow Wrap, we enable the shift from plastic to paper, without compromising on converting productivity nor barrier characteristics.
Sustainable & Recyclable
All fibers used in Billerud Packaging papers are sourcedwith focus on sustainable forestry. By introducing low-weight and Fluoro/PVDC free SWAPP Flow Wrap, Billerud brings forward innovation based on renewable and biodegradable materials meeting brand owners and legislators need to reduce littering and increase recycling. SWAPP Flow Wrap is approved for food contact, ensuring excellent protection of content. Moreover, the recyclability fee for the material is much lower than for plastic.
Ensured Machine Productivity
In addition to the sensory look and feel as well as sustainability benefits of an all-natural packaging material, SWAPP Flow Wrap must match plastic alternatives in terms of production efficiency. To prove that the paper meets the highest manufacturing standards, it has been tested and verified by Syntegon Technology to ensure a natural production flow in terms of very high-speed conversion (proven speed >155m/min) and smooth runnability. In addition, the material also exhibits good tear resistance and dead fold properties.
Excellent Barrier Performance
As a natural mono-layer paper material, SWAPP Flow Wrap provides an excellent surface for various barriers coatings suitable for medium to high barrier requirements (chocolate bars and other confectionery as well as bakery products), regulating both water vapour transmission and high grease resistance to provide perfect product conditions.
Perfect match for confectionery and bakery packaging
What is naturally good deserves a natural packaging. The specific barrier requirements make SWAPP Flow Wrap primarily suited to match the standards for confectionery and bakery end use. Providing new business opportunities for manufacturers and brand owners that want to join the sustainable movement. Want to know more about the natural choice?
