Mondi’s Alufree Barrier Film Set for Display at Fachpack

Barrier Film packaging: Customers buying packaged food like dried herbs or soups usually store them for some time before use.

To make this possible, the packaging of such items should have the right barrier functions.

While protecting the packaged items is vital, the packaging’s environmental aspect too shouldn’t be ignored. At the upcoming Fachpack, Mondi Coatings is set to display its alufree Barrier Film. This intelligent solution will address customers’ dilemma of storing packaged foods safely.

Each packaged food needs specific barriers. The core business of Mondi Coating involves finding solutions for such specific demands. Sometime back, aluminium foil packaging laminates were used to achieve the best barrier for packaged foods. Though aluminium offers a good barrier function, the technicians of Mondi have recently found an intelligent alternative.

They developed the alufree Barrier Film, which apart from being eco-friendly, also offers other benefits. Since alufree Barrier Film doesn’t contain any metal, a metal detector can now be used along the supply chain without losing any of the necessary functions.

Recognition for Mondi’s Alufree Barrier Film
The BarrierFilm has already got the Silver Awards and the WoldStart Award. For being an innovative product in the field of sustainable packaging, it has also been conferred with PPI 2014. This BarrierFilm facilitates a long shelf life and offers outstanding protection for food products.

Additionally, it helps decrease the carbon footprint of the packaging as it is devoid of aluminium. A consumer using this product even reported that it has helped them decrease their carbon footprint to the extent of 25%.

Mondi Fibre Packaging’s CEO – Jussi Vanhanen said that winning these awards was a true testimony to the company’s excellence in development, pioneering spirit and persistence, all of which were necessary to deliver this packaging breakthrough.

In its Barrier Film, Mondi has introduced a special sealing polymer. It facilitates the reduction of the sealing temperature and thus decreases energy consumption. This way, the company has enhanced its sustainable approach further.

Additionally, higher efficiency can be enjoyed on the filling lines, thanks to the lower sealing temperature. Unlike aluminium laminates, the BarrierFilm doesn’t have a memory effect and isn’t very sensitive to kink folds.

Therefore, the packaging remains safe and scathe-less. This in turn helps in publicising the product’s eye-catching visual appearance as well as the brand even more.

Mondi’s alufree Barrier Film can be used for a wide range of applications. This includes converted foil bags for dehydrated food items and products (e.g. instant coffee) that need an exemplary oxygen barrier.

Mondi’s Barrier Film in FACHPACK Sustainable Barrier Film
The Mondi booth will be overflowing with its award-winning packaging solutions, making it the perfect place to learn about more sustainable options for any business.

In FACH PACK, Mondi will include Advantage StretchWrap, RetoryPouch and other sustainable packaging solutions. Advantage StretchWrap is a paper pallet wrap, great for replacing plastic wrapping. This product has all the benefits of plastic wrap with none of the environmental drawbacks.

Yet another excellent choice from Mondi is the RetortPouch Recyclable. This single-material solution can create a circular economy that is advantageous to all parties. The thermoforming plastic sheet Mono Formable PP provides the best barrier qualities. Additionally, this product is entirely recyclable, making it a fantastic option for companies looking to lessen their environmental impact.

Newest Launch From Mondi’s Packaging Solutions
Besides the Barrier Film, Mondi’s Functional Barrier Paper is a revolutionary new product that can improve the shelf life of perishable food products. The paper is coated with a thin layer of clay, which acts as a barrier to oxygen and moisture. This layer prevents spoilage and keeps food fresh for longer.

In addition, the paper is also coated with a wax that provides a barrier to grease and oil. This can keep food from becoming greasy or oily and prevent it from sticking to packaging. The paper is available in a variety of grades and sizes and can be customised to meet the specific needs of a product. With Mondi’s Functional Barrier Paper, food is fresher and has a longer shelf life.

Latest Investment for Sustainable Barrier Film
To come up with innovative and sustainable barrier film and other packaging solutions, Mondi recently announced a €1 billion expansionary capital investment programme. With this capital infusion, the company wants to solidify its position as the industry leader in sustainable packaging.

As one of the world’s leading packaging companies, Mondi is uniquely placed to make a positive difference to the planet and its people. Through its innovative products and solutions, Mondi is helping to make everyday life better for billions of people around the world.

This latest investment is another example of Mondi’s dedication to creating value for all its stakeholders – from shareholders and customers to employees and local communities. With this latest commitment, Mondi is once again demonstrating its leadership in sustainable packaging.

Part of its commitment is the managing of forests and producing pulp and paper for industrial packaging. To ensure its role and commitment in the industry, Mondi will replant around 20,000 hectares of forestland yearly. With this latest announcement, Mondi reaffirms its commitment to delivering on its promise to be a sustainable business for a better world.
