Truly effective sustainable packaging requires innovative designs and environmentally-friendly sources. The H-Loc Trapped Blister is a safe, healthy and eco-friendly alternative to the traditional clamshell, and boasts 100% recyclability through four major components.
- Recycled Plastics.Instead of utilizing an all-plastic design like the clamshell, the trapped blister uses just a minimal amount of RPET plastic to contain the products. RPET stands for recycled polyethylene terephthalate (PET), which is 100% post-consumer material made from recycled water bottles. This type of plastic can be recycled with plastic soda or water bottles. The clamshell typically uses PVC, a harmful type of plastic that releases toxic chemicals during production and is non-biodegradable.
- Biodegradable Corrugated Components.Better known as cardboard, corrugated paper products are the most recycled materials on the planet. The corrugated materials used for the trapped blister are both recyclable and biodegradable, and can be easily separated from the plastic materials for simple recycling efforts. The use of corrugate also helps to increase graphic space, allowing for more room to print bold graphics and product details.
- Soy- and Water-Based Inks.These types of inks are fully biodegradable, and are used for graphics and product information on the trapped blister. The water-based coating along the trapped blister’s printed paper layer is a more eco-friendly alternative to oil-based inks that rely on expensive, nonrenewable resources.
- Water-Based Adhesives.Typical adhesives on most packages are chemical-based, leaving a residue on the package that makes it no longer recyclable. The trapped blister uses water-based adhesive for an innovative, nonhazardous and recyclable solution.
By using environmentally-friendly materials that are both made from recycled materials and are easily recyclable, the H-Loc Trapped Blister contributes to a more sustainable future.
