Berry's compression film maintains high performance with recycled content

28th February 2022 by Berry bpi packaging solutions

Berry bpi packaging solutions has launched a new version of its high performance, market leading FormiFor insulation compression film that incorporates up to 30% recycled content. This latest addition enables companies to benefit from the many existing benefits of FormiFor while also being able to demonstrate a stronger environmental profile.

The new version of FormiFor contains up to 30% of Berry’s Sustane® recycled polymer. Sustane® polymers are made from post-consumer packaging and promises the highest levels of technical performance, consistency, traceability and quality. This ensures FormiFor continues to offer its high weld and holding force characteristics and can be printed in up to ten colours for high-impact and colourful decoration that maximises brand awareness and on-shelf appeal.

Berry is one of Europe's most experienced manufacturers of compression film. FormiFor has been developed to meet the exacting requirements of the insulation, glass wool and stone wool products . Its lightweight structure uses up to 50% less material in comparison with other traditional packaging . As well as minimising the amount of packaging required for each application, this also results in less packaging waste by weight being generated. The film is also recyclable at its end of life.

In addition, FormiFor’s high compression rate means that wrapped products occupy less space, relieving warehouse and storage pressures and reducing transportation costs. Equally important, because more film can be wound onto a standard reel, fewer reels are required for each application, minimising downtime for reel changes and maximising productivity.

“In line with Berry’s Impact 2025 sustainability strategy, this latest version of FormiFor demonstrates our ability to design for circularity with a film that maintains all its benefits while helping our customers meet and exceed their sustainability goals,” commented Elmar Verbaarschott of Berry bpi packaging solutions.
