We’re excited to announce Canopy™, a sustainability program that provides a curbside-recyclable alternative to PE shrink film for tray bundling!
We are collaboratively bringing this program to market with WestRock and just displayed Canopy™ with working demos during PACK EXPO 2023.
Canopy™ Wrap has passed rigorous ISTA 3 Series testing, is coated for moisture and abrasion resistance, and provides a printable surface for showcasing branding.
Canopy™ Equipment can be retrofitted to existing bundling machinery or installed as a dedicated high-speed bundler.
There was a great deal of interest in Canopy™ at PACK EXPO from companies in the food and beverage space because of the growing demand for curbside-recyclable alternatives to petroleum-based materials such as PE films. Companies are also gauging the impending impact of California’s SB54 legislation, the Plastic Pollution Prevention and Packaging Producer Responsibility Act, and starting to make decisions based on the end life of their packaging.
Many people were impressed by the product’s strength and durability. Canopy™ Wrap is made from Fibershield® extensible kraft paper, a high-strength and low-weight paper used for demanding packaging applications.
Atlantic Packaging and WestRock employees commented on the excitement people experienced after picking up the wrapped trays and noticing that the Canopy™ Wrap wouldn’t tear.
