Sonoco: Alloyd PaperBlisterPackaging

Sonoco created a monomaterial alternative, readily recyclable alternative to traditional plastic-to-card blister packaging, without the need for new sealing equipment. The EnviroSense PaperBlister package is plastic-free, and it is recyclable in the paper stream. The PaperBlister™ completely eliminates the need for mixed material designs which can be recyclability-challenged, as plastic packaging usually has fiber residue when separated from the paper card, making it less desirable for recyclers. 

The Importance: The Sonoco Alloyd EnviroSense™ PaperBlister™ package has both operational and distributional benefits, sealing 20% faster than traditional packaging and shipping flat to maximize efficiencies. Sonoco’s water-based printing and sealing technology also ensures there are no resulting VOCs, while the new design increases the amount of space available for graphics and messaging.
