These sheets made of paper and film, typically used for the packaging of deli meat and cheese slices, is referred to as a "fresh pack" or duplex paper.
Duplex paper is assembled from a printable paper sheet and a thin sheet of film (HDPE) by bonding the film at certain points. The bonding at certain points results in an air cushion between the paper and the plastic sheet, which helps to extend the life of the packaged goods. At the same time, these can later be disassembled into their individual material components (paper and plastic), which optimizes the disposal costs for dual systems.
Various grades of paper can be selected; these can later be printed with up to 5 colours by means of flexographic printing.
COMCOPLAST offers on demand all paper carrier bags composed of FSC® (C129402) or PEFC certified paper.
