Toppan Printing Co., Ltd. Toppan Printing Lines Up Packages for ALL PE Liquids in “GL BARRIER”

Toppan Printing Co., Ltd.
Toppan Printing Lines Up Packages for ALL PE Liquids in “GL BARRIER” We have developed an ALL PE mono-material configuration package that achieves both strength and environmental suitability. Eco-friendly packaging with a single material structure that supports boiling sterilization and is highly recyclable.

Toppan Printing Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo; President: Hideharu Maro; hereinafter referred to as Toppan Printing) has announced a new lineup of the GL BARRIER* series, a comprehensive barrier product brand centered on transparent barrier films. We have developed a PE (polyethylene) mono-material barrier package for liquid contents.
[Video 2:] This product utilizes the vapor deposition and coating technology of “GL BARRIER” to enable vapor deposition processing, which was difficult with PE (polyethylene), and achieves higher barrier properties than conventional PE monomaterial packages.
It can handle high-moisture content and liquid contents, which have been problematic in terms of physical properties in general PE monomaterials, and has excellent drop strength as a liquid product application. Can be used for any purpose. In addition, the
mono-material construction makes it highly recyclable, and it is a package that achieves both strength and environmental friendliness. With this product, we have further expanded the “GL BARRIER” lineup to meet the demand for mono-materials, which is leading in Europe and the United States.
For a wide range of industries, including food manufacturers and toiletry manufacturers, sample shipments will begin around the spring of 2023 worldwide, and full-scale sales will begin in 2023.
In addition, this product will be displayed at the Toppan Printing booth (East 2) at the “2022 Tokyo International Packaging Exhibition -TOKYO PACK 2022-” (Venue: Tokyo Big Sight) to be held from October 12th (Wednesday) to 14th (Friday), 2022. It will be exhibited in Hall / Booth No. 2-52).

■ Development background
 In response to the growing global momentum for promoting
environmental consideration and resource saving, such as SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals), packages that reduce environmental impact are attracting attention. In the medium-term management plan announced in May 2021, Toppan Printing aims to realize a sustainable society as a leading company that solves social issues worldwide through “DX (Digital Transformation)” and “SX (Sustainable
Transformation).” We are promoting our business activities with environmental initiatives as one of our priority measures.
In 1986, Toppan Printing developed the barrier film “GL FILM” to solve social issues such as food loss reduction and resource conservation. At present, we boast the world’s top share in the market for transparent vapor deposition barrier films, with the world’s highest level of barrier performance and a wide range of products for various applications. In the EU, each country has started working on resource recycling of packaging waste, such as the goal of making all packaging materials reusable and recyclable by 2030.
 The use of monomaterials for packaging is an effective means of improving recyclability, and there is a demand for the development of PE-based barrier films and barrier packages for monomaterial packaging. The development of a PE mono-material barrier package with excellent drop strength will make it possible to replace refill pouches for detergents, shampoos, etc. with a mono-material
■ Features of “PE mono-material barrier package for liquid applications” ・Excellent recyclability due to PE monomaterial composition
By using PE as a single material for the packaging, we have achieved excellent recyclability.
・High barrier properties/Boil sterilization suitability
A high-quality barrier deposition layer developed based on the technology cultivated through the development and manufacturing of “GL BARRIER”, a proprietary barrier coating agent and converting technology realize high barrier properties and boil sterilization suitability. We can also handle a wide range of contents that require high barriers, which was difficult in the past.
・Realization of PE monomaterial packaging for liquid applications The development of a PE mono-material barrier package with excellent drop strength will make it possible to replace refill pouches for detergents and shampoos with a mono-material configuration.
