Apr. 5, 2018 – Sappi is introducing the second generation of Sappi Seal, describing it as a flexible packaging paper with improved sealing properties and increased sustainability.

Designed to replace hot seal laminates made from plastic with materials containing a high proportion of renewable raw materials, Sappi Seal is a single-side coated flexible packaging solution for use in the food and non-food sectors where hot sealing properties are required, including primary packaging (like sachets) and secondary packaging (such as flow-wraps for sweets, toys or DIY goods). The packaging paper is also designed to provide a barrier against water vapour and is recyclable within the paper waste stream.

“Its homogeneous and light surface provides good printability and finishing properties with all common finishing techniques. Its natural appearance and pleasant feel ensure an eye-catching brand presence,” says the company.

Sappi Seal is available with FSC or PEFC certification and was produced according to the requirements of recommendation BfR XXXVI  (Bundesinstitut für Risikobewertung – Federal Institute for Risk Assessment). The paper is available with a grammage of 67 g/m2.
