Sustainable Packaging

What is Polywrapping?


Polywrapping is the enclosing of magazines or brochures within a sealed, usually see through polythene wrap. Sooner Than Later provides High Speed Poly-Wrapping services which is a fast and effective way to enclose and dispatch catalogues, brochures or magazines. This can sometimes also be called Polybagging. We operate two world class Sitma Collation and Poly-Wrapping lines which can insert up to nine items within one polybag.

Types of Sustainable packing materials

Polylite


Polylite™ is a 3 layer laminated film which allows us to produce a thinner film whilst maintaining the required strength.  Polylite™ is designed to reduce your carbon footprint compared to using traditional LDPE poly by up to 50%. Polylite has no degradation additives in the film making it fully recyclable (Code LDPE 4)
 
·         Less poly raw material
·         Full recyclable
·         Will degrade ‘quicker’ as its thinner

Polycomp

Polycomp™ uses biopolymers, which are obtained by means of pioneering proprietary technologies using starches, cellulose, vegetable oils and their combinations. Polycomp™ conforms to EN13432 so is compostable in open air as long as there are micro-organisms to break it down and can be printed with the “OK HOME compost” logo. Polycomp™ can be disposed of on any compost heap, in a household garden waste bin, a household food waste bin, or you can use it to line your food waste bin.

Polycomp™conforms to EN13432 so is compostable in open air as long as there are micro-organisms to break it down and can be printed with the “OK HOME compost”logo. The EN13432 OK HOME Compost certificate guarantees a minimum of 90% of the material will compost in 12 months, after the film is put into an environment with the micro-organisms, not when it’s on the pallet wrapped up.

The raw material grown is not using up valuable arable land. Biorefineries use various local raw materials (low-input crops, waste, etc.) with full respect for the specific characteristics of the territories. An essential component of our research activity is the identification of autochthonous crops which can be cultivated in marginal and non-irrigated lands, thus making the most of the specific features of the land and increasing the fertility of the soil, while at the same time maximising the use of waste and residues as valuable sources of raw materials for the biorefinery.
