Sulapac launches flexible grade & bio-based barrier

Along with its new flexible material conceived for thin-walled cosmetics jars, Finnish bio-composite specialist Sulapac is rolling out a patent-pending barrier solution that it claims leaves no trace of microplastics.

In September 2020, Sulapac CEO Suvi Haimi announced in Luxe Packaging Insight that a flexible version of its flagship Sulapac material was in the pipeline. This month, the Finnish supplier is bringing it to market, alongside a bio-based barrier solution. “While around 90% of cosmetics consist of water-based emulsions, there has not been an alternative for water-based products that biodegrades without leaving permanent microplastics behind. Sulapac’s patent-pending material answers this market need,” explains the company.

Along with the barrier solution, Sulapac’s flexible material is suited to the production of thin-walled jars and features “excellent impact strength”. The combination of this new material and the bio-based barrier makes for a packaging that can contain both aqueous and oil-based formulas.

Quadpack has been Sulapac’s Preferred Global Cosmetics Packaging Partner since early 2020. As of this month, the 50ml jar from Sulapac’s Nordic Collection, a range produced by Quadpack made of a wood-based bio-composite, features the new barrier technology.
