FOOD PACKAGING: New RePEat film offers a recyclable PE packaging solution

RePEat - recyclable PE films and pouches from Sirane

SIRANE has launched a range of recyclable PE pouches and films – RePEat.

The films (and pouches) are made from pure PE (polyethylene) – including any zip-lock – and so can be recycled anywhere with an LDPE recycling stream.

Mono & laminate structures are available, offering a range of different barriers – meaning RePEat films can be used for frozen food, packaging which requires a high barrier and liquids. It is also suitable for non-food, where no barrier is required.

Simon Balderson, Sirane MD, said: “RePEat film is a plastic film, but one which can be recycled. Traditionally, this sort of packaging cannot be recycled, because of the multiple laminate layers, but with RePEat film it can be easily recycled.

“Whether it is for a non-food application requiring no barrier, for frozen food, or for ambient-temperature food requiring excellent barrier properties to keep it fresh, RePEat film has a range of options, making it definitely one to consider.”

• RePEat F1(120Mu) Mono-layer recyclable PE pouches for non-food and frozen applications where no oxygen barrier is required.

• RePEat F2F1(150Mu) Recyclable laminated PE pouches for heavy products. Nice gloss finish and more rigid feel than F1 alone. No oxygen barrier

• RePEat Barrier F2F3 (70Mu) Recyclable laminated PE film or pouches for light product. Nice gloss finish and high oxygen and water vapour transmission barrier

• RePEat High Barrier F2F4 (152Mu) Recyclable laminated PE film or pouches for heavy/liquid products. Nice gloss finish and very high oxygen and water vapour transmission barrier

Our RePEat pouches and films are part of a range of sustainable packaging solutions offered by Sirane. For anyone looking to remove plastic completely, we can offer Earthfilm or Earthpouch, a paper-based plastic-free packaging solution.

Simon Balderson, Sirane MD, added: “At Sirane, we want to offer customers the options. Many people want to go plastic-free, but it is not always possible. For some people Earthpouch or Earthfilm will work, but for others RePEat film will at least allow them to move to a film which is recyclable in the LDPE recycling stream.”

We can also supply a high-speed low-cost pouch filling machine – the M7 – for anyone looking for the complete ‘food packaging pouch package’.

Sirane is an innovative food packaging development-to-manufacture company, with expertise in absorbency and material science. Specialisms include bags and pouches, absorbent products, shelf-life extension and dual-ovenable products.
We also recently acquired a UK-based board manufacturer and converter.

Another recyclable product which can be made from pure PE is our thermally insulated bags. All components, including insulation and handles, and just one material, PE, which means the bags can be easily recycled if no-longer needed.
