Coveris Unveils New Recylable MonoFlex Thermoform Packaging Coveris has developed of a recyclable solution, MonoFlex Thermoform. Coveris’ MonoFlex Thermoform innovation is said to provide a sustainable alternative to non-recyclable materials currently used for thermoforming packaging in food sectors. Coveris’ MonoFlex Thermoform films are developed from high performance monomaterials, enabling the switch from non-recyclable, mixed material thermoforming substrates, which achieves a carbon footprint reduction, said the company. Aligned with Coveris’ sustainability strategy, No Waste, the recyclable MonoFlex Thermoform solutions are pro- duced from polyethylene (PE) or polypropylene (PP) and are fully nylon-free (PA). Manufactured at Coveris plants in Germany and the United Kingdom, MonoFlex Thermoform can be produced from single substrate co-extruded or laminated films de- pendent on the product application and print require- ments. MonoFlex Thermoform offers EVOH barrier prop- erties for product protection and shelf-life, which is also supported by its strong puncture resistance. Coveris’ Film Science Lab and Pack Innovation Centre testing capabili- ties were instrumental in the innovation process, from the development of the films’ formulations to the validation of their performance, including barrier features.
