Polysack fully recyclable packaging films joins forces with HP Indigo digital printing
10 May 2021 – In collaboration with HP Indigo, Polysack has validated its packaging films for printing on HP Indigo digital presses. Polysack, a green-tech manufacturer of plastic film products for flexible packaging and high-shrink labels claims that its Pack’N’Cycle plastic film is fully recyclable plastic for packaging including stand-up pouches, films, and shrink labels.
The company added that some 9% of all plastic is recyclable and that ‘most recyclable’ plastics is not actually recycled or fully recyclable.
“The ability to combine our 100-percent recyclable film with HP Indigo’s printing capabilities allows businesses to create packaging that fits their brand while remaining environmentally conscious,” says Yanir Aharonson, CEO of Polysack. “Plastic waste is a major environmental problem, and we’re glad to help make the world a bit more green.”
Polysack’s unique film can replace 70 to 80 percent of unrecyclable plastic to fully recyclable packaging without increasing costs, modifying people’s habits, or needing to rebuild the infrastructure for the package production, according to Aharonson.
Printela, a flexible packaging converter based in Lithuania, has chosen Polysack’s recyclable film combined with HP Indigo’s digital printing press to create customized, eco-friendly packaging.
“By using Polysack’s Pack’N’Cycle films, Printela’s HP Indigo Digital Pouch Factory efficiently produces different recyclable pouches consistently, says Valdas Buksnys, General Manager of Printela. “Pack’N’Cycle by Polysack is an efficient Polyester replacement film.”
“We are excited to help brands find new packaging options for their products to continue to improve their sustainability profile,” said Yair Gellis, Head of Flexible Packaging Development at HP Indigo, “The HP Indigo digital printing solution for flexible packaging offers brands sustainability advantages including lower waste.”
