When the products are born from the green philosophy. In a market of conscious consumers, attention to packaging sustainability is a virtuous trend, deeply felt in the beauty and consumer goods sector, in which it has also become a driving factor for marketing.
The green soul of Scandolara expresses itself in a series of innovative solutions, developed in the name of reducing the environmental impact, but with characteristics of sealing/welding, decoration and compatibility similar to those of virgin PE.
Trendsetter in the field of sustainability, and in year 2009 it won the Oscar packaging for the innovation considered the “perfect synthesis of image and respect for the environment”, Scandolara has developed the “Green Heart” tube, coextruded in 3 layers: a polyethylene recycled heart inside of two virgin PE layers in direct contact with the product it guarantees the compatibility between container and content, and furthermore the easy sealing during the filling process.
The recycled PE allows to reduce the use of virgin material up to 40%, while the outside PE virgin material maintains the same physical and aesthetic qualities of the packaging.
Optimal print yield and repeatable results have made it a standard that Scandolara now proposes in an advanced version: the new Green Heart structure has three layers coextruded in a cylindrical tube with the inside layer of recycled HDPE (rHDPE food grade certified), where the outside layers are available in all the PE blends (low-medium-high density) with a total thickness of 500 micron.
Green Heart is available in transparent or coloured and in diameters 35, 40 and 50mm.
Tube produced in blend with 50% di rHDPE and LLDPE, that guarantees elasticity and sealing.
The recycled polyethylene comes from selected food packs, food grade certified and is therefore suitable to get in contact with food and is validated for cosmetic use.
rHDPE blend is available in diameter 19-25-30-35- 40-50 mm.
Scandolara’s constant search for sustainable materials and packaging has landed at “I’m greenTM Polyethylene” in Braskem, the Brazilian producer who, starting form ethylene obtained from local sugar cane, transforms it into green plastic.
The result of this combination is the range of PE Pure Green tubes which, in addition to containing and preserving the products in a functional and elegant way, guarantees the most sensitive brand owners to environmental issues the advantage and safety of a raw material obtained from renewable sources, checked and provided with the hallmark “I’m greenTM”.
Pure Green is available in diameters 19-25-30-35-40-50 mm and upon request also the caps are available in PP Green material.
The Single 100% PE
First mono-material product at Scandolara. In particular, the body, the shoulder, thread and cap are realized with the same PE virgin material. This facilitates the deal and recyclability of the tubes after the use.
The Single 100% PE tubes is available in diameter 19-25-30-35- 40-50 mm.
PCR Alu tube
With a view to circular economy Scandolara has a recycled aluminium tube up to 100% of PCR (Post Consumer Recycled) available in diameter 25 ÷ 40mm.
