Innovia Films has added NatureFlex™ NK Matt to its range of compostable cellulose-based packaging films. The film has a premium natural paper appearance. It has been developed primarily as a lamination grade. NatureFlex™ NK Matt is ideal as the outer web of duplex and triplex structures. It is also suitable for use in laminations to other bio-polymers (including grades of NatureFlex™) and for extrusion coating.
Organic and Fairtrade companies are already trialling NatureFlex™ NK Matt for products in the confectionery, dry foods, snacks and beverage sectors.
The natural look and sleek feel of NatureFlex™ NK Matt in your pack enables your product to grab the attention of consumers on a crowded shelf.
The NatureFlex™ NK family of films already includes:
• NatureFlex™ NK (clear)
• NatureFlex™ NKM and NKME (metallised)
• NatureFlex™ NK White (solid white)
These films, along with NatureFlex™ NK Matt, provide an excellent barrier to gases, aromas and mineral oils.
NatureFlex™ NK Matt has 97% renewable content (ASTM D6866 Carbon Testing) and meets the European EN 13432 and American ASTM D6400 composting norms. NatureFlex™ is also suitable for anaerobic digestion, aiding the diversion of organic wastes from landfill.
This high gas barrier film gives your product the protection it needs. Advantages offered for packing and converting by NatureFlex™ NK Matt include inherent dead-fold, anti-static properties, printability and resistance to grease.
