Producing 7-layer Recyclable Barrier Film on VAREX II

Pregis’ newest film in their Performance Flexibles Renew series, Pregis BariPlex, developed under the Association of Plastics Recyclers (APR) design guidelines, has been approved for How2Recycle (H2R) on-pack labeling and in-store film drop off.

“We lead every conversation with a sustainability first mindset” said Jonathan Quinn, Director of Market

Development & Sustainability at Pregis. “Our secret sauce to enable sustainability is in having the right people and partners in place to make sustainability happen and to take us toward a circular economy by keeping these valuable materials out of the landfill.”

The 7-layer food-safe structure is being produced on one of the multiple VAREX II lines at the company’s plant in Anderson, S.C., which officially opened in October 2021. The film will be used for applications where barrier properties are critical to protecting product integrity and freshness, primarily for food, but also for medical, beauty and personal care products.

“Getting this structure designed and commercialized was the result of the outstanding Pregis Performance Flexibles team along with best-in-class capital equipment and knowledge,” says Quinn. The talented people who drove the process within Pregis and made it happen was the technical team, including Chad Perre, Justinian Broughton, and Kyle Abercrombie, along with production lead, Chris Mrozinski.

“Our partnership with W&H has played a tremendous role in the success of our flexibles business,” said Quinn. “Across the board, we have strong relationships with the people at W&H, from our daily contacts, to processing specialists, to the service teams and technicians... really everyone,” he added.

Pregis is a global provider of innovative protective packaging materials and systems with over 30 locations in the United States and manufacturing plants in Europe.
