Kwik Lok introduces Enviro-Lok, the new polypropylene bag closure made to keep products safe and fresh, while also delivering on a better potential for recycling. Kwik Lok will be featuring the Enviro-Lok at the Global Floral and Produce Show in Anaheim, CA, United States from Oct. 19-21, booth 3331.
Enviro-Lok offers the same strength and reliability that goes hand in hand with the Kwik Lok name. It has the added benefits of 34 per cent less plastic than the standard Kwik Lok closure, 67 per cent less water and 44 per cent fewer carbon emissions emitted, and it runs on current Kwik Lok machines.
Customers may also choose the new ultrasonic welded labels, offered only with the Enviro-Lok, for branding, tracking and traceability. This label is made from the same material as the Enviro-Lok and due to the ultrasonic weld technology, removes the sticky adhesives. This makes Enviro-Lok even more prepared for recycling. A packaging solution where all the elements are made with one material, such as polypropylene, makes it easier for the consumer to recycle with confidence.
“Enviro-Lok makes it easier for our customers and the consumer to support a circular economy. Kwik Lok continues to invest in materials science so we can have packaging that keeps food fresh and safe and can be re-used.” Viktoria Pakhnyuk, Ph.D., sustainable product development manager.
