Walki’s brand new Walki®Fibre Wrap is the ideal sustainable solution for packaging non-food and e-commerce products that do not require demanding barrier properties. 

Walki has introduced a new recyclable material for non-food packaging that does not need demand separation of the coating prior to recycling.

Traditionally, most paper-based packaging solutions are coated with polyethylene (PE). Some countries have considered these solutions to be recyclable if the plastic content is very low. With an increased demand from consumers, retailers, brand owners and e-commerce providers for fully recyclable packaging, Walki innovated a material that is recyclable without separating the coating.

The most important requirements for packaging e-commerce or non-food applications such as household goods, toys or games are strength and sealing properties. "Walki®Fibre Wrap delivers on strength and is also heat sealable, unlike many other paper-based packaging solutions which are glued", explains Bernd Gelder, Business Development Manager for Industrial Packaging.

“The major advantage of heat-sealable paper solutions is that they allow producer to use the same equipment used to seal plastic,” adds Gelder.

All grades of Walki®Fibre Wrap are also all printable.
“We can offer a base material with heat-seal properties on the back and high-quality flexo printing on the front. There is no need to use a separate printing provider since we can deliver the final packaging material in reels.”

Walki®Fibre Wrap is available on bleached or unbleached craft paper grades, ranging from 50 to 90 gsm. It is also available on Paptic®, an ultra-high end biobased, recyclable and reusable packaging material with outstanding haptics that is especially suited to luxury applications.
