Also on display was ProAmpac’s full flexible packaging portfolio, blown film, digital print capabilities and fresh food to-go packaging.

ProActive Recyclable® R-2050ProActive Recyclable R-2050, is the newest addition to the ProActive Recyclable® R-2000 Series of polyethylene-based structures. Available in rollstock or premade pouches, R-2050 offers very high clarity, high drop resistance, excellent stiffness and dimpling resistance for premium shelf appearance. Designed to be a drop-in replacement for conventional multi-material laminates, R-2050’s superior heat resistance allows for optimal speeds, a wide operating window and high efficiencies on filling lines.

  • ProActive PCR incorporates post-consumer recycled (PCR) content to the package to meet UK Plastics Packaging Tax exemptions and brand sustainability goals.
  • ProActive Renewable is packaging that incorporates bio-based resins.
  • ProActive Compostable® packaging degrades in a biologically active compost environment.
