“ProAmpac continues to deliver on our mission to help our customers meet their sustainable packaging goals,” said Adam Grose, chief commercial officer for ProAmpac. “The ProActive Recyclable R-2050 series is now produced and available in the United Kingdom and Europe as a sustainable alternative to conventional multi-material laminated structures without sacrificing performance.”

ProAmpac’s R-2050 packaging uses the company’s high-definition flexographic printed graphics, available in matte or gloss.

“R-2050 is engineered to have high clarity and drop resistance, excellent stiffness and dimpling resistance for a premium shelf appearance,” said Hesam Tabatabaei, global vice president of product development and innovation at ProAmpac. “R-2050 provides superior puncture resistance and excellent directional tear without the need for laser scoring. Engineered with superior heat resistance, R-2050 allows for optimal speeds, a wide operating window, and high efficiencies on high-speed horizontal, vertical, and flow wrap form fill sealing lines.”
