Mondi expands release liner range with launch of two new paper-based sustainable EverLiner products
VIENNA (News release) -- Leading global packaging and paper group Mondi is launching a range of new paper-based release liners which are created using recycled and light-weight materials and provide a more sustainable solution for a range of applications.

The new products have been created with FSC®1 or PEFC® certified paper to ensure responsible sourcing and, being lighter in weight, they offer a sustainable solution for labels, tapes, envelopes and industrial usage.

EverLiner labelite is a lighter option to standard glassine for label applications, with the same thickness of 58 gsm glassine but engineered to a reduced weight of 47 gsm. This results in 20% less raw material used to produce the liner. The mechanical and transparency properties of the EverLiner labelite are also comparable to standard 58gsm glassine. Furthermore, its lighter weight allows for optimised transportation. With Mondi using paper from an integrated production process with manufacturing and converting taking place in-house, this leads to a significant reduction in the product's overall carbon footprint.

EverLiner M R is the first release liner on the market using a recycled base paper. The machine glazed paper (MG) with 70% FSC® recycled certified content reduces the amount of fresh fibres used and is FSC® certified so ensures responsible sourcing. In a first cooperation with a European label producer, Mondi was able to achieve a significant CO2 reduction for their customer.

"Our aim is to create sustainable alternatives with no need to change the silicone system in order to offer products that are effective in usage, work for our customers and ultimately help protect the environment. By using recycled fibres, reducing the amount of material used, and looking at the whole production and logistics process, we have been able to create new highly effective options that manufacturers can choose from, depending on their product application and specific needs. We apply our EcoSolutions approach, to support customers develop sustainable packaging solutions and are committed to reduce raw material usage." Andrea Lackner, R&D Director Release Liner, Mondi.
