EcoShield release their new heat sealable paper

Society is weary of all the plastic waste piling up from the heavy packaging demands of our consumer age. On the regulatory side, plastic bag bans, fees, or taxes are increasing and causing users to think twice about plastic packaging.

These attitudes serve as an impetus for increased use of a biobased, responsibly sourced, and recyclable material—paper—as an alternative. With this need for bags and other forms of three-dimensional packaging, Cortec’s EcoShield® Heat Sealable Paper offers a recyclable, versatile option.

EcoShield® Heat Sealable Paper is a packaging product coated with a water-based heat sealable adhesive coating, which forms seams when the paper is heated with coated sides together (typical seal strength = 1.2±0.3 lb/in [5.2±1.3 N/25.4 mm] per ASTM F88-99). This sealing feature allows the user to create countless customized packaging configurations:

  • Bags
  • Sleeves
  • Banding
  • Tags
  • Other creative formats

The coating is non-hazardous and repulpable, and EcoShield® Heat Sealable Paper can be disposed and reprocessed through standard recycling procedures. This is a huge advantage over the many single-use plastic bags of all sizes that come in kits or shipping boxes and must be thrown away in the trash once they have been opened.
