German self-adhesive materials and coatings specialist VPF has launched Kraftliner NSA700-476, a kraft paper liner claimed to be the first on the market made predominantly of recycled paper.
The new product contains 70 percent of recycled material and received an FSC certification. According to the company, it significantly reduces the use of virgin fibers. Its manufacturing process saves 60 percent of the energy and up to 70 percent of the water, offering an improved carbon footprint.
The sustainability angle can be increased further by using environmentally friendly face materials from the VPF product range, such as 100 percent recycled grass and bagasse papers, available for a wide range of applications.
VPF has subjected the Kraftliner NSA700-476 to several tests proving its long-term aging resistance with all common dispersion acrylic and UV acrylic adhesives from the VPF portfolio.
The company has also launched a sustainable film-based, transparent R-PET liner made of 70 percent post-consumer waste and coated on one side with easy-release silicone.
