Spartech launches 1-Seal packaging solution

FBR Staff Writer Published 02 May 2012

Spartech Corporation has launched its 1-Seal packaging solution, a technology that provides a sustainable, re-sealable, durable packaging solution to the food industry.

According to the company, the new technology uses an in-mold label (IML), caps and seals in one step by leaving a portion of the label surface exposed inside the lid. The 1-Seal lid provides an air and water tight seal, while eliminating the need to seal with film or foil.

The in-mold label, which is integrated directly into the tray during the production process, allows for improved, vibrant graphics that do not degrade when exposed to aqueous products.

Spartech noted that label and lid are made of a single thermoplastic, making the entire package recyclable in streams that collect polypropylene.

In addition, Spartech is also launching its EnviroAirR technology that lowers the density of thermoplastic rollstock and sheet by adding microscopic air bubbles in the core of the sheet.

Spartech Corporation is a leading producer of plastic sheet, compounds and packaging products. The company operates 34 facilities in the US, Mexico, Canada, and France.
