FLEXCON: Post-Consumer Waste Release Liner

July 17, 2012

This company recently announced the availability of a new post-consumer waste (PCW) 50 lb kraft roll form release liner, made from up to 30% post-consumer waste. The new liner provides converters the option to provide a “greener” product to their customers, many of whom are placing a greater emphasis on using sustainable products.

FLEXcon collaborated with a supplier to develop a liner that addresses the growing demand from the narrow web label market. This product introduction can enable the tag and label industry to decrease its carbon footprint and the demand for forestry products while maintaining the same level of quality and functionally equivalent performance.

“FLEXcon remains committed to supporting sustainability efforts and delivering quality alternatives for the narrow web label market,” said John Bennett, vice president of Product Identification. “We worked closely with a supplier to develop a PCW liner in order to offer converters an environmentally friendly solution at the same price and with the same performance level.”
