For Immediate Release
Addison, Ill.—(September 16, 2019)— PAXXUS, Inc. introduces additional variations of single-stream recycle-ready flexible materials.
PAXXUS has expanded its Stream™ brand of flexible mono-material packaging solutions that are compatible with recycle streams #1, #2, and #5 to support sustainability initiatives. Every material in the Stream™ family can be tailored to precise package requirements without sacrificing performance. Many of the Stream™ recycle-ready materials allow for down-gauging of up to 50% compared to traditional lidding and pouch materials, providing additional reductions in waste and energy. The wide sealing window of each Stream™ material allows for the utmost versatility and ease of use. Stream™ flexible materials can be printed and are ideal for lidding, pre-made pouches, 2D form fill seal, and flow wrap applications.
