Recyclable metallised paper packaging launched

Parkside metallised barrier paper

Packaging innovator Parkside has launched a recyclable metallised barrier paper.

Part of the Recoflex range, the new material offers heat sealability, printability and barrier performance, and can be converted on form, fill, and seal (FFS) and flow-wrap lines.


It is compatible with existing UK recycling infrastructure, meaning consumers can drop it into their domestic paper recycling bins after use.

Parkside new product development technologist Steve Hallford said the metallised paper was “ideal” for a range of packaging applications from coffee to medicines.

“The most exciting thing about Recoflex has always been its potential for further growth and innovation,” he said.

“We have taken the time to listen carefully to what our customers need from metallised material and have developed a solution that offers the functionality, performance and operational efficiency that today’s market demands, while also meeting consumer demands for more recyclable packaging.”

The Recoflex portfolio also includes freezer-proof paper material, translucent barrier paper and a high barrier performance paper.

“Our drive to keep improving access to recyclable flexible packaging means we look forward to growing the Recoflex range even further in future,” added Hallford.
