PP HB ECOTOP

Our new, flexible, polypropylene top film is a recyclable high-barrier material that can be used with heat treatments such as retort processing. It can replace multimaterial structures to comply with EU guidelines on the circular economy. PP HB ECOTOP is part of SP Group’s ECO range of recyclable monomaterial solutions.

Combined with the new RST B ECO thermoformable base web, our PP HB ECOTOP top film is the perfect solution for vacuum-packed products that require retort processing.  The structure is fully recyclable, as more than 90% of it is polypropylene. The remaining materials do not interfere in the recycling process.

The PP HB ECOTOP top film is also compatible with rigid polypropylene thermoformable trays. This makes it an ideal recyclable monomaterial top film for products that require MAP, rather than vacuum packing.

Properties:

High-barrier material, suitable for retort processing. This heat treatment prolongs the shelf life of products, thereby helping reduce food waste.

Applications:

This material is ideal for food products that need to be sterilised, vacuum packed or packaged in trays with a top film. It is perfect for pre-prepared, vacuum-packed fruit and vegetable products, such as corn, beetroot, etc.

PP HB ECOTOP is the ideal top film for pre-prepared food products requiring hot-fill processes, such as rice pots, jams, baby food, etc.

It is the perfect solution for any products for export to Germany, where polypropylene is the main recycling stream.
