Franklin, Mass.-based Vacumet Corp., manufacturer of metallized papers, has launched its new compostable metallized packaging papers. The new papers are tested and certified to be biodegradable in a managed composting facility, meeting ASTM D-6868 standards.
Offering an environmentally sound alternative to foil, foil laminated papers, and metallized films, the new papers are ideal for sandwich wraps and bags as well as pouching for multiple applications. The papers are available in a range of weights and functional performance characteristics.
“Our new line of compostable metallized papers offers a greener alternative to the foils currently used in food packaging,” said Joe Formosa, director of business and technical development at Vacumet “Consumers are more aware of environmentally-conscious food packaging and we’ve developed a product that meets these needs.”
Vacumet, a wholly owned subsidiary of Scholle Corp., developed the unique functional properties for this new line of packaging papers while maintaining the standout visual appeal consumers find irresistible, a news release says. To complement the new line of compostable metallized packaging papers, Vacumet will continue to offer its award-winning custom design services.
