OUR PACKAGING

Packaging made with Ocean Waste Plastic (OWP) is beautiful and has an incredible story to tell.

 

All packaging containing PP and HDPE can be made with OWP

– no matter if the packaging is a standard model or a customized solution.

''UNIQUE PACKAGING IS CREATED WHEN THE DESIGN MEETS YOUR EXACT REQUIREMENTS''

THE QUALITY OF
OWP PACKAGING 

For some, the initial thought when being introduced to our concept is that the quality of the plastic won’t be like virgin plastic – but is that really the case?

 

In general, plastic that has been floating in ocean and rivers for years risks being bad quality and degenerated. However, if the plastic is sorted and treated correctly the final raw material will be of similar quality as conventional PCR materials.

 

Our OWP setup enables us to provide a OWP raw material that stays within the needed tolerances. This allows us to secure that the packaging we deliver lives up to our high-quality standards.

HOW WE SECURE
THE QUALITY

When the plastic waste in ocean and rivers is collected, it is manually sorted at our sorting station in Jakarta, Indonesia. Our well-trained sorting employees know exactly what plastic to keep and what plastic to scrap. This ensures that the finished raw material lives up to the quality standard needed to provide high-quality packaging.

 

We test every single batch of OWP raw material to ensure that we achieve high-quality standards. Each batch of OWP raw material is tested up against REACH, CalProp 65, and Heavy Metals by Intertek, but we also test it in every production (blow- or injection molding) to check if it performs as intended.

 

For us, the key is certainly our sorting- and testing environment, which secures that our packaging made with OWP complies to relevant standards and stays within the specified tolerances to make it perform as our customers expect.

PERCENTAGES

OF OWP

The amount of OWP can be customized to suit your needs as long as it is in line with the maximum capacity possible in a given packaging (typically ranging from 20-100%).

 

What will determine the possible amount of OWP in packaging is:​

  • The shape

  • Desired color

  • Tolerances of packaging (e.g. a pump engine)

  • The use of the packaging (OWP can’t be used for food or pharma)

A WORLD
OF COLORS

Packaging made with OWP is available in a multitude of colorways, however, there are differences between the two materials:

SHADES OF WHITE

POLYPROPYLENE (PP)

The base color is a transparent green color. The lightest color possible is off-white. Any color darker than this is also possible.

100% OWP

HIGH DENSITY POLYETHYLENE (HDPE)

The base color is solid bright olive. The lightest color currently possible is light green and any color darker than this is also possible.

100% VIRGIN

100% PCR

20% OWP

& 80% PCR

The less OWP included in packaging the lighter the color can be achieved.

COMBINING OWP WITH VIRGIN OR PCR

OWP is always combined with another material unless 100% OWP is chosen. The other material can be one of the following:

Any of these plastic materials are of a lighter color than OWP and will help to achieve light colors of the packaging.

BENEFITS OF USING PACK TECH A/S

With extensive knowledge and experience in designing and delivering packaging since 1946, Pack Tech has a fundamental belief and goal to excel in all parts of the supply chain:

  • We have in-house designers

  • We have local warehouses in the USA, EU, and China allowing a delivery time of maximum 5-7 days

  • QC is made with each production

  • We pay for most of the tooling costs on your new design project as we believe that unique packaging is the key to success for both of us

DESIGNING NEW PACKAGING

Customized packaging needs to reflect everything you want and all your

requirements – made in a cost-effective set-up allowing full flexibility.

THE PROCESS IS AS FOLLOWS:

  • Designer is appointed for your project and an interview is set up

  • Based on the interview, a few designs are created

  • Discussion of the final design

  • A final design is signed-off

  • Your approval of a prototype

  • Production of tooling (4-12 weeks) that Pack Tech pays for

  • Manufacturing of the packaging (30-45 days)

  • Delivery of products (directly or through one of our warehouses - where we hold stock)
