Packaging and paper company Mondi has developed what it says is the world’s first sustainable polycoated kraft (PCK) paper release liner. According to the company, NextLiners, which are used to carry and protect pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) products, uses a recycled base paper with a coating made from renewable resources.
‘Our goal is to be sustainable by design, so we have worked on innovating environmentally responsible NextLiners that support our customers’ sustainability goals,’ said Stefan Schönberger, head of product sustainability, Mondi. ‘Using recycled fibers and renewable resins takes us one step closer to making the PSA supply chain more sustainable.’
Mondi says that it is also conducting research and development into more sustainable release liner alternatives and recycling-related technologies.
