Coffee – now available in sustainable vacuum packs!

Fully recyclable vacuum packaging – Syntegon packaging machines process PP mono-material from Constantia

Vacuum packaging for coffee traditionally requires multilayer plastic laminates. With the recyclable PP mono-material, Syntegon and Constantia are now for the first time presenting a sustainable solution for this demanding application. The PP mono-material from Constantia, an Austrian packaging material manufacturer, is characterized by an aroma-tight barrier and excellent processability.

Innovative packaging thanks to state-of-the-art machine technology

Mono-materials are more demanding on machine technology during processing than conventional plastic composites: Particularly when it comes to sealing, folding and cutting, the switch to mono-materials requires adjustments to the machines – for example to prevent the more temperature-sensitive films from damage due to long sealing times. Syntegon's vacuum packaging systems are well-equipped to handle these challenges and process mono-materials to create high-quality packaging.

The sustainable PP mono-material solution is not only available for new machines – existing machines can also be retrofitted with the corresponding technology. Syntegon's wide range of services includes individual consulting and machine tests in order to implement the perfect solution for each customer in terms of material and machine adaptation on site – sustainably and safely.

PP mono-material – sustainable times two!

These fully recyclable vacuum packs also offer an optimal ratio of packaging to product weight – at a minimal packaging size. This makes the packaging twice as sustainable thanks to environmentally friendly materials and material savings – while also saving CO2, costs for logistics and recycling fees.
