At Skymark we have always been proud to drive innovation through flexible innovation. We first launched our mono structure PE laminates into the wet wipe sector with great success, launching with some of the major retailers such as Tesco, and Waitrose.
We didn’t stop there, we now have our fully recyclable mono structure packaging for the food sector: SKYMONO EB with high barrier for multiple food markets, in particular cheese, sauce & condiments, meat and dried fruits. Providing a direct replacement for current non-recyclable alternatives, SKYMONO EB will meet and in some case exceed current shelf-life requirements, as well as maintaining packing line efficiencies through SIT technology.
We have tested this material on existing flow wrap lines for block cheese and have successfully reached 6 months shelf life within specification, with packs showing same initial snug, maintained cheese flavour and no mould growth.
We enlisted the help of our colleagues at Institut Cyclos HTP in Germany to test our mono-materials for recyclability and NIR detection within the Waste streams. Our product scored very high for recyclability, achieving 95% recyclability under LDPE plastic films with no issues for LDPE NIR detection within the waste streams.
