PACCOR lays out pioneering packaging solutions

PACCOR has an extensive product portfolio offering many sizes and different shapes for a wide variety of
contents. Nevertheless, as a leading global player in the packaging industry, the company is continuously
searching for new materials that their packaging solutions meet current market trends. Now PACCOR is
ready to present several new PP products developed in the last months: foamed polypropylene (PP)
products and PP cups with oriented polypropylene (OPP) sleeves – a true pioneer performance. PACCOR’s
solutions improve shelf life at lower carbon costs, thus contributing to the well-being of people and our
planet.

The PP foaming technology allows a 10 to 15% weight reduction of the products with full skeleton
reincorporation and increased thermoforming cycle time. The cups are available in white or colored (nontransparent). This technology has been developed in PACCOR’s production site in Szombathely, Hungary, with a
significant investment on an existing extrusion line.

“The results of the foamed PP cups are very satisfactory. Up to 16% less CO2 emissions when we produce our
DuoSmart® solutions and 15% less plastic needed compared to the production of traditional DS cups,” outlines
Yves Caunegre, Group Director Innovation at PACCOR.

PACCOR, an absolute pioneer in this field, is the first packaging manufacturer to offer OPP sleeves on PP cups
which are detected as mono-material PP. The sleeves can be fully recycled and sorted together with the PP cup.
Mono-material packaging is the best solution for the circular economy. Besides that, it offers unlimited
decorating possibilities and is ideal for conical or curved cup shapes.

“These new products allow significant sustainability improvements compared to oriented polystyrene (OPS) and
polyvinyl chloride (PVC) sleeves and support PACCOR’s CARE strategy by providing leading circular offers to our
customers. Mono material solution can make sleeving interesting for other applications in a conical or curved
shape,” adds Nicolas Lorenz, CCO of PACCOR. “To support our customer’s sustainability agenda, life cycle
analyses of our new products are available,” concludes Nicolas Lorenz.
