RPET-blisterIn the past, the most important attributes of a successful packaging solution included durability and protection, which required strong materials that could withstand long-distance transports and maintain effective tamper-evident qualities. With the increasing awareness and concern over our impact on the environment – specifically, the materials and energy use involved in packaging solutions – today’s packaging goals have shifted toward more eco-friendly strategies that retain stability and performance.

The H-Loc Trapped Blister’s use of sustainable materials, particularly the combination of recycled corrugated cardboard and recycled PET (RPET), strives toward a greener future while maintaining an innovative design that improves and protects the product. Its innovative design involves a minimal amount of RPET to contain the product, with recycled corrugated cardboard surrounding the plastic and holding the package together.

The Trapped Blister and Corrugated Cardboard

Corrugated paper products are most commonly referred to simply as cardboard. Its strength and durability make it a popular choice for affordable, protective packaging, and many people often store and reuse cardboard boxes over and over again. It’s no wonder, then, why corrugated cardboard is the most recycled material on the planet. The H-Loc Trapped Blister uses 100% corrugated materials for the main structure of each package, making the package highly recyclable while increasing graphic space for product information and eye-catching logos.

The Trapped Blister and Recycled PET

RPET stands for recycled polyethylene terephthalate, which is a thermoplastic polymer of the polyester family. Many suppliers use PVC for packaging materials for its strength and versatility, but RPET proves to be just as durable. The production of RPET involves sorting and recycling PET and turning the material into new products, without the creation of harmful dioxin or the inability to biodegrade that comes along with the use and production of PVC. The trapped blister uses only a small amount of RPET to contain the product, minimizing the use of plastic altogether.

The combination of corrugated cardboard and RPET, in addition the trapped blister’s use of soy-based inks and water-based adhesives, makes the H-Loc Trapped Blister a truly sustainable packaging solution that improves product performance.
