Interbrands Packaging is an authorized distributor of E6PR™

posted in: News, News, Trends | 0

Interbrands Packaging is an authorized distributor of E6PR™ in the US. The E6PR™  (Eco Six Pack Ring) is made from fiber by-product waste, designed to replace plastic rings, which are truly damaging our environment.

 

 

The eco rings are compostable and biodegradable. Depending on the ecosystem, it may take the E6PRs up to 200 days to fully degrade or compost. The disintegration of E6PR’s in the ocean and on land are contingent on certain factors such as movement, salinity, temperature, humidity, soil composition, etc.

E6PR is working with nano, micro, mid, and large beverage companies globally, to help them transition to plastic-free packaging with 4-packs and 6-packs and sleek 4 packs, and join the movement to get rid of plastic.

Collaborating with you

We have several solutions for the application process: from the Manual Press Applicator that works up to 60 cans a minute to automated applicators that will work from 100 to 720 cans a minute.

 

Sturdy and durable

– Water Resistant: Six pack will start to loosen after 90 minutes under ice water.

– Jolt test: We carry out a jolt test to validate the strength of the cans while shaking them in two defined conditions:

  • 60 cycles per minute and a 2¨ of drop height
  • 90% humidity and 90ºF
